You might be surprised to learn just how versatile self-striping yarn can be! Socks are an easy choice when looking for your next project, but hats, scarves, wraps, and arm warmers are all fair game, too. I haven't personally made all of the patterns listed below, but they all caught my eye in searches on Ravelry. (My talent is not found in pattern-writing... I leave that to other folks who are much more talented than I am! Links below go directly to Ravelry, where you can find more information about the pattern, the designer, and other projects. I do not claim any of the below patterns as my own.)

All of the patterns below are knitting patterns, since I'm more familiar with that craft. If you are a crocheter and have a pattern to suggest, I would be so grateful so I can add it below! Please feel free to use the contact page (and that goes for knitters, as well) if you have a favorite pattern that isn't listed here. Please share!
