Mahalle Top Down Socks

Mahalle” (ma-ha-lay) means “neighborhood” in Turkish. This traditional top down sock is perfect to fit the foot length as you knit.

The Heel is turned using three DPNs knit flat in short rows to maintain the striping more consistently. The number of leg sts is greater than those for the foot, and either can be easily increased or decreased at the Heel flap section for better fit, as desired.
