Explore the knitting structure of a Turkish sock without the extra distraction of stranded colorwork. These were based on the toe/heel construction of a pair actually knit in Turkey, which LynnH owns.

Using only one yarn, we can focus on unusual construction details such as a toe-up O-wrapped cast on, four-part swirl toe, upside-down Dutch heel and two rows of simple Bosnian slip-stitch crochet.

Yarn: 100-200gm DK-weight yarn (multicolored works best)
Needles: US 2-1/2 (3mm) DPNs, set of 5. Crochet hook size G/4.25mm.
