About the Author:
Kate Atherley was taught to knit as a child by her grandmother, Hilda Lowe. Hilda was a legendary knitter in her own right. A family legend - sadly unconfirmed - says that Hilda used to earn a penny turning the heel of socks for knitters in her neighborhood, when she was a girl. Kate is a mathematician and refugee from the technology industry. She has written two books: Beyond Knit and Purl(Cooperative Press, 2012), and Knit Accessories: Essential and Variations(Cooperative Press, 2012). She is Knitty's Lead Technical Editor and also does other freelance technical editing. Plus, Kate’s a regular contributor to books and magazines, including most recently the Spring 2013 issue of Sockupied. She lives in Toronto with her husband and their challenging, but mostly adorable, rescue hound Dexter.
Kate just released an exciting new DVD, Knit Socks that Fit: Create Patterns Using Precise Measurements + Gauge (also available as a Digital Video Download).

- I love this book!
- What's not to like? Many patterns I'm keen to knit, most with toe-up and toe-down instructions, and then there's all the useful technical assistance in getting the fit right. (Posted on 7/11/2016)
- Great book
- This is a great book. Knitting the Fitzcaraldo sock and learning how to adjust the measurements . There is a little typo on the chart, row 32. (Posted on 11/29/2015)
- Great resource!
Custom Socks is well written and extremely well organized. As an experienced sock knitter, this book looks to be invaluable. It has exhaustive resource material that will be useful over and over again. Size charts and references to cast ons and cast offs will always be with me on my iPad.
That missing fifth star is only because of the lack of being able to navigate the book easily. The index would be much more helpful if the page numbers were live links.
