One World Turkish-Style Socks
Note: There are Charts Only for the colorwork in this design. (Most of my patterns with colorwork also supply the text, for knitters with that preference, but not this one.)
In the summer of 2003, I met a family from Turkey and expressed my interest in their culture, particularly sock knitting. They generously offered to look for socks on my behalf, when they returned to Turkey on a visit.
I thus became the proud owner of four pair of authentic Turkish socks. This design is inspired by the structure of one pair I received, using its toe and heel but adding colorwork throughout.
Construction: In the round on 5 double-pointed needles (4 holding, 1 working). Toe up starting with wrapped cast on, and striped band heel with flap but no gusset. Top finished with eyelets and (optional) Bosnian Slip-Stitch Crochet edge. Braided tassel, also optional.
