Knitting Brioche-Stitch Socks

It's time for another book review! This week, it's Knitting Brioche-Stitch Socks by Barbara Sander.


As the title would suggest, it's a whole book of sock patterns using the Brioche stitch. Admittedly, I don't know anything about the Brioche stitch. Not to worry...there are some basic instructions for knitting the Brioche stitch in the round at the start of the book!

The book contains 14 patterns. It has patterns using multiple colors as well as different textures.

What I thought was very interesting is that you don't knit a traditional heel with these socks. I'm not sure that these would be the best fitting socks you've ever worn, but the technique is certainly intriguing.

Knitting Brioche-Stitch Socks is published by Martingale & Company. To see all the patterns in the book, check it out on Ravelry.

Want my review copy? Just leave a comment on this post (leave an email address of Rav id, so I can find you should you win) between now and 9/13. I will pick a random winner!

Happy sock knitting!

2012 was suppossed to be my year of sock knitting but I got distracted with a huge monkey (I figgure he equaled 5 socks plus. I don't know anything about Brioche but am trying to learn new things so would love to check out this book.

Hmmm that is interesting... I was wondering how they feel on the sole too. Haven't tried brioche yet.
