Book Review - Socks Yeah DK!
Yes! What we have all been waiting for, the talented Rachel Coopey of Coopknits, the brains behind the amazing Socks Yeah! and Socks Yeah! DK yarns, has released a Socks Yeah! DK pattern book. DK socks I hear you cry! Yes! Speed up your sock knitting with this book and delve into the amazing colour range of Socks Yeah! DK, which might I add we now have in 22 shades!
Eight original sock designs by Rachel Coopy that are thick, cosy and the perfect antidote to a chilly evening. Cleary written as well as charted, with step by step photo tutorials to help you with tricky parts like Long-tail Cast On and Kitchener Stitch. All knit in three skeins of Sock Yeah DK! Let's take a look between the covers at a few of the patterns.
Zlonk looks to be the easiest to knit from the collection and would make a great beginners sock. Simple stripes making for an effective and interesting to knit pattern. Seen here knit in Sphene, Tyburn and Fleet.
Glipp makes bold and graphic use of garter stitch bumps, creating an entertaining knit. Stripes echoed in the rib are a nice design detail that tie the sock together. Seen here in Tartarus and Aeacus.
Bam features one of Rachel Coopey's signature styles of making a real design statement with the ribbing. Why settle for a boring K1, P1 rib when you can have fun with it and these socks are all about fun. Playing with entertaining textures and colour. You won't get second sock syndrome with these. Seen here in Minos, Morpheus and Chiron.
Did I say we have expanded the Socks Yeah DK. Selection here at Knit With Attitude. Well let me welcome: Quartz, Xenon, Beryl, Dollis, Wandle and Prunus.
If that doesn't say knit me then I don't know what does!
