hello, I'm new to this forum. I love the self striping sock yarn but need some ideas or pattern sources for something to knit. I have not tried socks yet so anything other than socks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Peggy, you can make all sorts of things from sock yarn, hats, scarves, gloves, shawls, even sweaters. A nice book for some quick projects is Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders. It is available on Amazon for 10.26 I have this and have already made several items from the book. Most of the projects work well for "take along" projects.
i saw the cutest thing yesterday, but don't remember where, you will have to search.....they had made elephants, chicks, and rabbits with the striping yarn....there is nothing cuter than a little striped elephant! the small yarn and tiny stripe areas are really proportioned for little animals...
I agree with all the other posts. I frequently use sock yarn for all baby items and toys. It is great fun. Just remember to check guage so you can adjust needle size. The latest sock yarn project I made was for twin boys did the sweaters and booties in sock yarn and the overalls in a solid color. Good Luck.
