TRADITIONAL ART

Knitwear

Knitting occupies an important place in traditional arts, and is still widely practiced today. Turkish handicrafts have a rich accumulation of thick and thin fabrics made with hooked and knitting needles, hairpins and shuttles with silk, cotton and woolen threads. Tentene, edging embroidery, knot-work (Kastamonu knot-work), and beaded cloth bags are examples of thin knitting, thick knitting is divided into two categories; handmade or shuttle-made. Knitting is done by holding the thread with loop knots with the help of the needle. Thick fabrics are used for wool or cotton socks, gloves or knee pads. Knitting needles began to be made in the 19th century.
