The act of knitting, which came into being as part of human needs, has assumed a universal identity as a hobby today. Different motifs are used in knitted products in different societies. The naming of these products underscores social and cultural influences. The aim of this study is to examine knitting models made of wool. The naming of approximately two hundred knitting models were first examined structurally. Compound and simple names, which are constructed by Turkish word-derivation methods and word groups, were examined. Another aim of the study is to examine the logic behind the naming of these models as well as their content. This was studied under the semantics sub-section. It was determined that daily life, geography, and food/drinks names, objects, and popular culture elements play a role in the naming of motifs. In terms of gender roles, to knit reflects female labour. In this respect, the study also focuses on the word clouds in the female world and on how, with the advent of technology, knitting, which can be learned face to face, is situated within the internet.
