Turkish Bed Socks Pattern
Inspired by a pair of socks entered in our "Koigu & You" customer show, we designed these little one-skein slipper socks for the 2009 LYS Tour. They make great gifts as they’re easy to fit and don’t take a lot of yarn. They’re nice for around the house. And terrific for travel. Our staff loves to wear them with clogs.
Finished foot length: 8"/20cm. Fits 9–10"/23–25cm foot. (You should be able to add another 1"/2.5cm of length within your one skein of Koigu.)
1 skein Koigu KPPPM (175 yds/160m); shown lower left and center left in Color 711D, and center right and lower right in Color 515.
Or 175 yds/160m of an equivalent fingering-weight yarn.
Set of 4 US 3 (3.25mm) double-points, or size to obtain gauge.
28 sts/34 rows = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch.
We think this is the perfect travel project—they're always interesting to knit. Karen says "Start them on the light rail to the airport. You can wear them 2 days into your trip!"
Plus they pack well, scrunching up into the smallest of corners in your suitcase. And they're great for padding around hotel rooms or walking a new city's streets in your clogs.
