As scrumptious as its namesake dessert, which any fan of a certain Northern Atlantic cookery contest will recognize, and quite a bit simpler! No fussy layers or delicate blending required, the delightful design is achieved with clever slipped stitches, working only one color at a time. (For the classic tart colors, try Turkish Delight Kettle with Bare Hawthorne.)

Bakewell are toe up using a Turkish cast on, with a short row heel. Toe, heel, and cuff is worked in one color, with rest of sock alternating between two colors, working one color at a time. Left and right socks are mirrored.

This pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
