© STITCH STYLE: SOCKS
FYI: The Turkish tradition of making knitted stockings and socks differs from other cultures in which these garments are presented. Turkish socks had five functions: to identify the wearerís community, to express the wearerís social rank, to serve as gifts or coded requests, to act as prophylactics and ward off the evil eye, and to commemorate natural disasters, violent events and great legends. Turkish sock patterns are derived from carpet designs, and have simple and homely names: apple slice, sergeantís stripes, watch chain, earrings, beetle, nightingale. -
