This book is a staple and a gem! Socks Yeah! Volume 1 contains 12 fabulous patterns designed using Rachel's own signature yarn, Socks Yeah! and 3 super helpful photo tutorials.
All of the socks are mid-calf length and worked from the top down and 2 of the designs feature an afterthought heel (don't worry - there's a whole tutorial!). There's a great pattern for a simple sock in case you're just starting out. There's colour work, textured patterns and fraternal twin socks too!

Brilliant, talented British designer Rachel Coopey has now has her own line of amazing yarns to complement her beautiful books (we sell all of them!).
Known for the most beautiful and varied sock patterns, her impeccable talent for design extends to her impeccable taste in colour in her Socks Yeah! and Socks Yeah! DK yarn lines. These yarns shouldn't only be reserved for sock making! They are brilliant in shawls, baby garments - you name it!
I was vaguely aware of Rachel Coopey's designs before, but before you actually try them it's hard to tell if someone's been hyped. I want to believe, but have been burned.
T... view moreo get myself over ? that all my self-knitted socks were ruined, I got this and all the Socks Yeah colours. If you're not sure whether she's a true genuis or hyped, I was on the bandwagon when I spotted this: cabling within the ribbed cuff. Wow, so glad I took the chance on this.
And Rachel's designs are all self-published, so she's not had the popularity of a publishing house's name to sell her or had to change to suit them. Still not sure? Go to Ravelry, and try one of her free designs view less
