Self-striping yarns are the “comfort food” of sock knitting. Every self-striping yarn is a little different, with wider or narrower bands of color. Choose yarn with a regular stripe pattern to create striped rings like these. Perfect for your second pair of handknitted socks, this pattern combines the ease of a self-striping yarn with a bit of added polish.
