Book Highlight: Big Foot Knits



My last book highlight from Coop Press is the Big Foot Knits by Andi Smith. 
A stunningly photographed book of sock patterns, tutorials, measuring guides and instructions on adapting pattern to fit larger size feet; the patterns are written specifically for larger size feet, with 3 sizes given for each pattern as well as directions on how to customise the fit.
Unlike any other sock patterns I've seen before, and I have seen quite a few, the patterns in Big Foot Knits are written for customising. Smith gives you the instructions, yes, but she also tells you where to adjust the pattern to fit your own feet. An absolute must if you knit socks for larger size feet!

Alcyone is a twisted cable and rib pattern, knitted in a semi-solid.


Arundhati is a particular favourite of mine because it shows the use of an ombre yarn, a fun little touch. The sock is knitted in a lace and rib stitch pattern.
