I have the most gorgeous book to share with you today. Shoreland is a beautiful book of socks designed by Hunter Hammersen. Hunter has used her coastal surroundings as inspiration to create seven stunning sock patterns. 

I have followed Hunter through her blog and other social media for some time, and am fascinated by the intricacy of her designs and the meticulous process she goes through when creating a new design. Her designs frequently feature incredible textures and stitch patterns and unusual constructions.

The patterns are set out in paragraphs, with both written and charted instructions. A variety of yarns can be used for each pattern as the gauge is given for both 4 ply and DK yarn, and there are three or four sizes for each pattern. This does mean that the knitter will have to swatch to determine the correct needle size for the yarn that they are choosing.

It's definitely a book for more experienced knitters, with cables, twisted stitches and some other unusual stitch patterns. Beautiful photography and sumptuous yarns almost make it a coffee table book.

There is a useful reference on the inside front cover - a chart with sock size suggestions, and space for you to add the measurements of your nearest and dearest should you choose to knit a pair for someone other than yourself! I think I would find it very difficult to part with any of the socks! At the back of the book there is a code so you can download an electronic version of the book too.

Shoreland is a lovely book for a sock knitter who enjoys a challenge. It would make a lovely gift paired up with a skein of yarn for yourself or a fellow knitter.


A beautiful selection of socks to knit. I particularly like the textured patterns. These are socks everyone will love to wear. Gorgeous patterns, gorgeous yarns, gorgeous photography. I love the little addition of the circumference chart for socks so that you can record the size of loved ones for whom you are knitting. Abbreviations are kept to a minimum and the instructions include charts. The patterns are worked in the round. It's not for beginners, but this will set the knitting juices flowing.

If  you love knitting socks, then you are in for a treat with this visually stunning book.

The introduction is really quite special so be sure to read it. The names of the sock patterns all have a seaside theme, and the yarn that Hunter has used is just divine.

You will need some experience of knitting, but with the instructions, comes detailed charts and the book includes tips and tricks to help and guide you.

The sock sizes are in inches and needle sizes are recommended according to a swatch gauge, so make sure you do this to be accurate. DPN's and circular needles are recommended.

There are seven beautiful pairs of socks to knit and each pair are just amazing. Because of the ease of the pattern they can be adapted in length and I can't wait to knit a slouchy pair for relaxing in.
