Turkish Bed Socks
$60 with Parna Mehrbani
A good introduction to sock knitting – these socklets are great to wear around the house or all year long in your clogs. The pattern appeals to fanatic sock knitters and beginners alike: the unusual heel construction is knitted flat, but after the instep, the foot is worked in the round. Traditional sock toe shaping prepares the knitter for future socks.
