Yomut

Knitting
August 2017
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
34 stitches = 4 inches
in blocked stockinette
300 - 400 yards (274 - 366 m)
Fits a foot or leg of 7.25 [8.25, 9.25] inches in fingering weight yarn, 8.75 [10, 11.25] inches in sport or dk-weight yarn.

Updated, expanded, and finally back in print, this delightful new edition of Silk Road Socks features sixteen intricate patterns inspired by oriental rugs.

All fourteen of the original patterns are here, each revised to fit my current style and with extra sizes added (that includes sizing them all for both fingering weight yarn and dk/sport weight yarn). There are also two brand new patterns available here for the first time ever. And of course along the way I’ve upgraded all the fun bits (new photos, new charts, beautiful illustrations…all the things that help make a book lovely)!

The book is available in both paper and electronic versions, and every paper copy of the book includes a unique code (look inside the back cover) that allows you to download a copy of the electronic book. You’ll be able to store the electronic version in your ravelry library if you like (though a ravelry membership isn’t required to access the electronic version).

You can get the electronic version here on ravelry, or swing by amazon or ask at your local yarn store to get a paper copy!



The Yomut are a Turkmen tribe now found mostly along the eastern shore of the Caspian Sea in Turkmenistan and Iran. Little is known of their history.

Yomut rugs show more variation than other kinds of Turkmen rugs though the differences still appear slight to those not well versed in the rugs of the region. They are always predominantly red and often feature diagonal stripes of large, lozenge-shaped, geometric forms called guls. These socks call on the strong diagonals and vibrant color of the Yomut rugs.
