Don't be fooled by the pictures! 17 février 2011
Par PS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was worried because in many of the pictures, the socks are not really knee-high on the models, in fact on some they are barely mid-calf. I happily found out though, that the publisher picked mostly very tall models (6 ft) and of course the socks are short on them. All of the patterns are made for normal sized women so they look very odd on the long legged models. I'm glad I got the book. The patterns are lovely, and the directions for customized fit are good. If you like knee-socks, this is the book for you!

Beautiful socks with gorgeous colorwork & textured stitchwork no matter how high you knit 'em 12 février 2011
Par Carol S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A quick note on the title of this book: "Knitting Knee-Highs" is not just for the lover of knee-high stockings: the 20 great-looking patterns are shown with variations of the non-knee-high variety, for those who like their socks shorter. So if you're a sock knitter who hesitated to look at this book because you prefer shorter socks, hesitate no longer. In this book, designer Barb Brown presents 20 sock patterns with gorgeous detailing -- stranded knitting, cabling, lace, twisted and other textured stitchwork. The book begins with a formula for knitting knee-highs, along with tips and tricks for getting socks to fit right (excellent information, since the size of calves can vary greatly, thus affecting fit). It's hard to pick out the "standout" patterns, since they're all so striking, but the Birdwalk, Both Sides Now and Flora are fabulous, as are the Dance Little Jean socks. What I really appreciate as a knitter and designer is that many of the socks are shown in multiple variations and colorways. Seeing how a specific pattern knits up in a different color combination is very helpful for less experienced knitters who might be otherwise hesitant to pick their own colors. Likewise, seeing how a stitch pattern works well in a knee-high, on the one hand, and an ankle sock or legwarmer on the other hand, gives the knitter confidence when selecting a variation to suit the wearer. This is a lot of work, and kudos to Brown for going the extra mile to include the variations.

If you're a sock knitter, a lover of stranded patterns, looking for more than ho-hum stockinette stitch socks, or appreciate interesting techniques and folk-inspired patterns, you need this book. I hope there's more coming soon from Ms. Brown!

Elaborate Patterns for Knee-Highs That Really Fit 15 février 2011
Par Lynne E. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Designer Barb Brown has given us a beautiful collection of 20 elaborate patterns for Fair Isle, lace, cabled, and ribbed knee-high socks. (Some of the patterns can be converted to anklets or legwarmers). Judging from the photos, Brown's knee-highs will not only hug their wearers' legs, but will stay up when worn!

The "Celeigh" knee-highs (check the "Look Inside This Book" preview) and the "Dance Little Jean" knee-highs (see the book's cover photo), are typical of the included patterns. Full instructions and charts are given for knitting each attractive knee-high design. For the calf shaping, some designs use gusset panels, while others use ribbing, stitch patterns that pull in, or subtle increases and decreases to achieve proper leg-hugging fit. No matter which method is used, the calf shaping is carefully worked into the overall design for maximum decorative effect.

There is not a single design in this book that I wouldn't want to make! But for me, the "Knee-High Formula" (also shown in the "Look Inside" preview) and the "Tips and Tricks for Custom Fitting" are enough to justify the book's purchase. The "Formula" for a basic or generic knee-high sock discusses measurements, then gives detailed, step-by-step directions for calculating the number of stitches to cast on, to knit straight, and to decrease, as you knit down from the cuff along the calf to the ankle.

This beautifully photographed book has already found a permanent place on my technical sock knitting reference shelf, right alongside Veronica Gainford's delightful classic, Designs for Knitting Kilt Hose.

a mixed review 11 septembre 2011
Par Anna - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Here's what I like about the book:

1. It includes a useful formula for calculating how to make your own knee-highs (cuff-down only).

2. About half the designs, which is pretty good (See photos of all the designs on Ravelry.com and decide for yourself).

3. Each pattern is shown as both a "knee-high" and an alternate version, either a shorter sock or a legwarmer, and there's an accompanying pattern for the alternate version. That really maximizes the value of each design, giving the knitter a lot of choices.

Here's what could have been improved:

1. As noted by others, not all the socks are actually knee high. And you can't blame it all on the tall models -- some of the socks do reach their knees, so obviously there's a problem either with the sample knits or the directions. Even if you follow the directions and knit for 13" from the cuff to the heel, you'll only get a knee high if you're on the short side. You can easily adapt the patterns to fit your leg, but greater accuracy in the book would definitely have been better.

2. Every single sock is knit cuff down. If you know how to flip the patterns to toe up, you can, but no instructions are provided.

3. The book does not explain how, when designing your own socks, to incorporate the calf decreases into the pattern. It's done different ways in different patterns -- in one back panel, in two side panels, within the leg pattern -- which is great, but the author never explains her choices, which would have added greatly to the reader's understanding and ability to design her own knee highs.

4. The photos don't always show the decrease area, which is something you'd usually want to see before embarking on a project of this size.

So, dear reader, the choice is yours...it depends what's important to you in a sock book.

Barb Brown Rocks! 24 mars 2011
Par electrictree - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I love this book! I am knitting the Birdwalk socks and they are beautiful. Barb's book is beautiful to behold and useful at the same time. She explains how to convert every pair of socks into legwarmers/spats, regular socks, and anklettes. That means 80 socks in one wee book (4X20 patterns). There are socks in here for every kind of person. I will definitely knit several in the book and I love how Barb gives license to knitters to expiriment and modify her designs. She also gives permission to sell products using her patterns! I will be buying this book as gifts for people!
