Pattern and Project Ideas

Self striping yarn is great for socks, mittens, hats, baby garments, scarves and more!  Here's just a few examples of what you can make with my yarn, and which stripe patterns work best.

Shetland Ruffles

 (Ravelry Link)

Best with: 10 rows stripers

Linen Stitch Slouch (Rav Link)

Best with: Complex stripers with a solid heel skein for brim

Swirl Hat

Best with: Any stripe pattern

Fissility

Best with: any stripe pattern

Typhoon

Stripe Pattern:  Any, but requires a full skein of contrast yarn.

Laufmasche Socks

Stripe Pattern: Complex--you'll want to look for colorways that have a 7/3/7/3 stripe pattern to duplicate the look of the original project.

Swedish Fish

Stripe pattern:  Any, but you may wish to use an even stripe or 10 row stripe to get the most solid colored fish.  Shown here is the Memristor colorway paired with a full skein of solid black.

Fruit Stripe Gum

Stripe Pattern:  Any
Shown here in the Cinnabar colorway with a solid yarn for cuffs, heels and toes.

Mystic Spiral

Stripe Pattern: Other stripe, even width
Shown here in Luciferin in Inertia

Thank you so much JenGoPop for letting me use your photos!

These are just a few examples of the awesome patterns you can use with my yarn.  If you have a project with my yarn that you'd like to share, email me at caitlin@selfstriping.com with a photo and a link to your Ravelry page (if any), and I can post them here for everyone to admire!
