Pattern Description from One-Skein Wonders: 101 Yarn-Shop Favorites: “This pattern is written specifically for hand-painted or hand-dyed yarns. It’s designed to pull out the beautiful highlights of the yarn, and you can get a pair of small or medium women’s socks out of a 100-gram skein. So go ahead and buy that lovely hand-painted yarn you saw last week - it only takes one skein!”
