This creative collection of footwear by Lena Maikon includes a wide variety of socks, slippers, and leg warmers. The designer has captured a compelling mix of traditional styling with a flair for the unexpected. A wide range of yarn weights and textures are used to produce a thoughtful grouping of 22 intriguing designs and six enhancements.
If this is your first time knitting socks, you'll find the Anatomy of the Sock section particularly helpful. If you're not quite ready to make a pair of socks yet, try adding one of the enhancement projects to a pair you've already got. Experienced knitters looking for a little challenge will find that here, too, in sock projects that include open gussets, intricate patterns, and diverse stitches.
