Turkish Bed Socks
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, such as Prism's Merino Mia.
Set of 4 US 3 (3.25mm) double points, or size to obtain gauge. You may prefer to use 2 US 3 circulars instead of the double points.
28 sts/34 rows = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch.
