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!

Heriz (sometimes Heris) is the largest of a group of about 30 villages and small towns in northwestern Iran. Rugs produced in any of these villages or towns are generally marketed under the name Heriz, although older carpets from this region may occasionally be called Serapis. Carpets have been created in this area at least since the early nineteenth century.

Heriz rugs are often large and generally feature rectilinear medallion designs. The field is usually red and the medallion is often blue. The design of this sock was inspired by the crisp, angular patterns and lovely madder red often seen in the borders of Heriz rugs.
