I love to knit socks but I get tired of the patterns that I use most, so this is a great find for me! Self striping yarn is incredible as a sock yarn. I have used it several times, but never in a sock as simple to knit as this one. If you're just starting in socks, try this pattern.

Since I've decided to knit everyone in my family a pair of wonderful knit socks for Christmas 2016, this pattern is a great place to get started. Plus I can buy special sock yarns to add to my ever growing stash. This is a nice basic pattern that will get me back in the habit of sock knitting and it should be a good place to start.
