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!

Yalameh (sometimes Yallameh) rugs are produced by both Iranian villagers and members of the Quashqa’i people (a group of nomadic tribes of Turkish origin) in the area south of the Iranian city of Abadeh. These rugs are considered among the most beautiful and highest quality of all the Persian tribal rugs.

Yalameh rugs generally use geometric designs, especially lozenge-shaped panels with jagged, latch-hook designs along the edges. These strong angles are reflected in the lovely borders of these slippers.
