Arab/American Knitting Sock Pattern


These toe-up socks are a tribute to Syrian immigrants and refugees in the United States. The design is based on what little information I could find, which includes a combination of Iraqi, Turkish, and Armenian designs and the colors and patterning on a mystery sock that I received as a gift. The techniques used are ones I’ve unvented by looking at socks from the region and the information in Ethnic Socks and Stockings by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts.
