Coop Knits Socks is a collection of ten sock patterns from the UK designer Rachel Coopey. Rachel has been designing socks since 2010 and selling her patterns through her blog and through Ravelry , she has also had patterns published by Interweave Press, as well as having her sock patterns appear in PomPom Quarterly but Coop Knits Sock is her first book.

Rachel’s designs include cables, lace and twisted stitches. Her patterns are clearly written and accompanied by beautiful photograph throughout. Very much suited to the more experienced knitter but equally appealing to the novice knitter too, as great tutorial help for afterthought heels, Kitchener stitch and long-tail cast-on are included. Rachel also gives advice and tips on choosing the right yarn for your project. And as a thank you for purchasing Coop Knits Sock, included is a digital download code so you can also download a digital copy free. An all round great first book, well done to Rachel.
