These Tajikistan socks are worked in slip stitch in either the front or back loop only for a thick, warm fabric. Charted colorwork creates the traditional patterns. Suhanoro, the designer and maker of these socks lives in Dashtak. Her mother taught her to crochet socks, and she furthered her learning at school. Her handicraft time competes with household and field work.

Where can I find the chart for making these socks as stated on page 52 of the Winter 2011 magazine?  The inset box says that I can find the chart at When I typed in Suhanoro socks in the search, this is what came up. I don't see the chart for this pattern! Help please?!

The designs on these socks are beautiful and symbolic and deserve to be charted as they were created by the women and shown in the picture.  I am very disappointed that you left out the four pointed cross (swastika) from the design chart for the Suhanoro Socks.  As explained in the article for these socks, and as many people now realize, the swastika is an ancient and positive symbol only made negative by Hitler.  I wished you had included the symbol on the chart with this explanation, thus giving the crocheter the option of including or leaving out the symbol.  You obviously thought the sock was worthy of inclusion in your magazine and did not shy away from picturing it or talking about it.  Therefore, you should honor the ""sense of good fortune and well being" (as described by the author Dora Ohrenstein) that this symbol means to these women and their culture.

Cyn2 I agree. Where do I find the pattern. Was searching for it too. I´ve started the Isafarmo socks and wanted to do these as well. To Lieslor it´s not hard to add the swastika your it ?

I agree with Lieselor!

You're missing an important part of the sock pattern.. it feels empty, and is missing those important elements that represent earth, fire, wind, and water!


On another note, I must say, I'm very glad to see this pattern at all. I'm excited to gather up some yarns and make a pair for my husband, I think he'd like them very much!

How do I do the ribbing on the sock foot? I like that design element, and want to keep it in. Is it maybe flo one row, blo the next?
