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.
