Online ONline Summer Sockstravaganza Pattern Recommendations - Round 3

Let the Yarn do the Heavy Lifting

This is the third in a series of posts recommending patterns for self-striping sock yarns.  We are saying goodbye to ONline sock yarns in the Online ONline Summer Sock-Stravaganza.  Join us!

Today we're looking at patterns that really allow the self-striping nature of the sock yarn to do the tough work.  Both of these patterns are relatively simple, but combined with striping yarn, they are stupendous

For knitters, look at the Tootsie Rolls, which harness simple knits and purls to create irresistible texture.  If you're not a flap-and-gusset kind of knitter, the concept is simple enough to apply to whichever sock structure you like best.

For crochet, I just love these Step-by-Step Socks.  The way the stitch pattern works to pull ticks of color across stripes is gorgeous.  Lacey socks are also perfect for these warm summer months.
