Book Review: New Methods For Crocheting Socks

By on July 19, 2015

Book Review

Have you ever crocheted socks? This was my first attempt and I am so pleased that I did. I read through Rohn Strong’s new book New Methods for Crochet Socks and the hardest thing about the book was choosing which exceptional pattern to work up first. Rohn’s book has some fabulous, new designs suited for beginning through advanced crocheters.

Rohn’s original sock designs are very well written. I love that all of the patterns use one of two easily accessible yarns, Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Serenity Sock yarn or Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Serenity Garden and an F hook. In the introduction, Rohn shares the basics of crochet sock construction and gives valuable tips to make a perfectly customizable sock. The patterns are sized for women’s small, medium, and large. Each pattern has a chart so that you can visually see how the stitch pattern is worked. The book includes a comprehensive illustrated stitch guide and stitch illustrations throughout. I tried to choose a favorite pattern but I couldn’t choose between the lovely cabled cuff in the Offset Cables and the lacy stitchwork in Falling Pineapple.

New Methods for Crochet Socks is 41 pages and features 12 exciting designs for beginners through experienced crocheters.  The photographs are enticing, and the instructions are concise and easy to follow.  I highly recommend this book, and I’m looking forward to crocheting all of the patterns!

This book retails on Amazon for $9.99, and the Kindle version is $7.99.  Grab a copy for yourself.  You will love it!

Happy Crocheting!
