Turkish socks were made with the left over yarns from rug making, so they were not soft. The patterns came from the rugs too. The socks were knit to a very tight gauge with the purl on the outside. They were knitted from the toe up and there were different kinds of toes, including the one that looks like it has a bobble, I’m calling it a star toe, but that is probably the wrong name.
So after this class, I want to try lots of different color combinations, including those in the examples of Turkish stitches that Anna bought along. I also want to try knitting with the purl stitch on the outside. I also need to try the star toe. For this one, I seem to remember that with your yarn you make a figure eight and wrap the middle. Fold in half and pick up the stitches for the toe from the wrap.
