Thanks to some evil enabling (by Michelle, I think?) I am now the proud
owner of 8 skeins of self-striping and 2 skeins of variegated sock yarn. I
don't want to make just plain old stockinette socks but I have had bad luck
in the past with finding patterns that go well with this type of yarn. I
find that the colors really mask the stitch definition so that neither the
yarn nor the pattern is shown off to its best effect.
Does anyone have any recs for patterns that might work? I have seen a pair
of striped Jaywalkers that turned out nicely so I may try that one but that
still leaves me in search of 4 other patterns.
So please let me know which patterns you've liked. Free or paid, book or
individual, all recs are welcome! Thanks!
