Coop Knits Socks Volume 2

One of our favourite designers, Rachel Coopey, has just published a follow up to her first volume of socks and it's another beauty. If you're a fan of socks, sock yarn and Rachel's endless quest for warm feet this is a must have!

Coopknits Socks Volume 2 is another great celebration of socks- how to measure them, how to choose great yarn and how to knit socks that your feet will be happy in. We are so pleased to be included as one of the recommended sock yarns of this collection.

Where Volume 1 was a riot of vibrant colours, this time Rachel is exploring a more muted but no less enticing colour palette. The textures suit this change of mood too with a range of cables, lace and colourwork that makes us want to knit every pair!

The variety of designs offered in this volume provide a great opportunity to try out new techniques. For beginners to sock knitting, a plain, topdown sock is also included. Each design is beautifully balanced and well thought out, giving both experienced and novice knitters the chance to create wonderful, wearable socks that are enormously enjoyable to knit.

As well as written and charted patterns, you will also find beautiful photography and carefully written step by step tutorials to ensure you have everything you need to know. With 12 patterns included, we think it's time to have a year of socks!
