"Self-striping yarns feature long, alternating repeats of color, creating a striped (or patterned) effect when knit. The latest in Sulcoski's (Sock Yarn Studio) series provides numerous options for working with self-striping yarns in new and exciting ways. An overview of basic suggestions for working with self-striping yarns is followed by patterns for fingering, DK, and worsted-weight yarns. Sulcoski and her contributors focus on investigating the possibilities of these yarns by using them in larger projects such as sweaters and shawls; combining them with solid yarns in stranded or intarsia projects; or exploring direction using entrelac or knitting sideways. VERDICT This collection shatters the myth that self-striping and self-patterning yarns are only useful for tubular projects such as socks and mittens." --Library Journal
