More HELICAL Stripe fun!

This time even simpler with all garter stitch, no borders, no stitches to remember and hours of relaxing and interesting knitting as you watch the colours change.

With one cake of Knit Picks Gradient Stroll (or any of your favourite gradient sock yarn) you will be knitting a continual spiral of essentially one stripe that follows itself around and around. No jogs, no little bumps of yarn at the back of the work to rub your skin…the wrong way, all day long.

This pattern is your guide to learning this fabulous and simple technique, HELICAL Striping 101. Follow the step by step photo tutorial and master the learning curve in short time. There are also photos to show how the yarn is divided and which ends to work with.

This design is not limited to gradient yarn and would also be effective with 2 colours of contrasting yarn 50 grams each.
