Like many sock knitters I have a love affair with self striping sock yarns. But sometimes I want to do more than just knit around and around, but also don’t want to carry a complicated pattern around with me, or count rows between cables. By using the spelling mnemonic “I Before E, Except after C” I came up with a way to make any self striping yarn create its own cable pattern. Of course, as we all know there are lots of exceptions to that spelling rule, so I added those in too!
5 variations and two sizes for each "rule" are included. You might never need another sock pattern!
Designed specifically for self striping sock yarns the pattern is explicit enough for a first time sock knitter, yet also allows an experienced sock knitter the freedom to pick their own toe and heel if they have a favorite.
Both Cuff Down and Toe Up Patterns are included!
