Knitting Vintage Socks New; Twists on Classic Patterns

By: Nancy Bush

Twenty-four classic patterns from Weldon’s Practical Needlework updated for modern knitters.

"Reconnect to a bygone era with 24 classic sock patterns from 'Weldon's Practical Needlework'. Updated for modern knitters, the book features gauges, yarns, methods, sizes, and tips for shaping heels. Filled with historical anecdotes, it evokes a genteel time and presents socks unseen for nearly a century." After an introduction to a few techniques from the original "Weldon's," the patterns begin with an 1887 pair of Gentleman's Shooting Stockings with Fluted Pattern and end with a pair of Ladies' Silk Stockings with Clocks from 1914. Intended for knitters of all levels, this walk down memory lane revives some very classic patterns that may have been gone but are not forgotten.
