I love self-striping yarn, and socks are perfect for it! The yarn gives me an excuse to use colors I’d never use (or wear) otherwise, and they look so much more complicated than they are.

This simple cuff-down anklet uses a worsted weight yarn so it’s super-quick to work up and the Strong heel keeps the stripes mostly uninterrupted. It’s a great intro to this fun heel and the best part (for me) is no picking up of stitches!
