Arial is a light fingering yarn with a lovely, soft hand. The two fine plies are strong enough to make wonderfully light socks at a very tight gauge, which is great for a pair of warm-weather socks.
The generous yardage in the striping skein allows for socks with lots of intricate texture or socks for larger feet.
Crochet socks work also work very nicely with this yarn.
If socks aren’t your thing, Arial is also a great option for lace, particularly scarves and shawls.
The two plies lend themselves nicely to open, airy fabric, and the Evolution skeins especially will create stunning lace accessories.
A note about skein sizing: Self-Striping skeins are available in Classic (100 grams, standard striping repeats) and Jumbo (150 grams, long-repeat stripes). To stash a Classic skein, enter 1 skein. To stash a Jumbo skein, enter 1.5 skeins. See KnitterlyAnne’s scarves in Classic and Jumbo skeins for the difference in stripes.
