Have you ever wondered how to make multi-colored striped socks like these? Maybe you look at a picture like this one and think, “Oh, I could never do this, there are too many color changes!” Well, guess what, these socks are knit using only 2 different yarns!!!
That’s right, using one solid and one self-striping sock yarn, you can achieve this beautiful result. The only limitation is your imagination! These were created using Cascade Heritage sock yarn and Wisdom Yarns Poems – a deep striping sock yarn in vibrant colors that creates a gentle drift of color.
The pattern we will use in this Knit-Along is for a basic dress sock and is free from S&B Distribution. Download it here.
