Here is a way to use up left over sock yarn. The pattern comes from Jared Flood – the Noro Striped Scarf
Use about 25 g of variegated sock yarn and another contrasting solid color. I used Ballard from Jojoland – sock weight wool. I have black, white and purple in stock ($4 per skein)
Cast on 39 stitches -
With solid color knit in pattern for 6 rows and then alternate between 2 rows of variegated and then 2 rows of solid.
Row 1 K1, P1 to end
Row 2 Slip 1 purlwise, K1, P1 to last stitch and slip purlwise
repeat these rows until you have reached desired length – finish with 6 more rows of pattern with solid color.
This pattern is perfect for a traveling project or any other time that requires mindless stitches.
One skein self-striping sock yarn and size 4 needles and your are ready to go.
pattern is available free on Ravelry.
Heritage Silk Cabled Top
Heritage Silk yarn from Cascade feels great on your needles. It’s superwash Merino and Mulberry Silk. This pattern uses a double strand so it turns out thicker – 5 stitches per inch. The double cable runs down the front and the back.
The pattern was designed by Marilyn Peters and is on Cascade Yarns website. But after finding a few omissions, I rewrote it. I only have it in a medium size but if you’re able to adjust the pattern you could change for other sizes.
Enoy the yarn. It’s fabulous – I have a rich purple and fushia in stock.

I had trouble with the kitchener stitch to close up the toe.
next time I’ll follow the instructions from this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkW3kP7RZdk
I still prefer the toe up method for socks because when you are finished both socks are finished and they are the same. I find there is far less counting!
