I love self-striping yarn as much as the next person, but sometimes just the joy of seeing the next colour coming through is not quite enough to get through knitting in plain stockinette. Of course, I could always knit an allover stitch pattern into my sock, but the idea has never appealed.

An idea came to me one day as I was browsing a stitch dictionary and came across an intriguing colourwork chart: What if I could use the concept and make the stripes work with me to create a colourwork pattern instead? These are the result.
