Jorabs - Ethnic socks

I was inspired to knit/crochet these socks by several pictures of ethnic Pamir/Azeri/Turkmen socks called "jorabs". I also enjoyed the book "Ethnic Socks and Stockings" by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts, and it was all it took to motivate me.
There are plenty of good patterns; this one is an interpretation of an existing one. I changed it quite a bit, and added a tapestry crochet cuff as an afterthought. I enjoyed the process; the needles - Holtz&Stein were perfect for the job. Now I am addicted...
