Self-striping yarn is increasingly popular with crafters, but many knitters lack the knowledge to work with the yarn effectively. Carol Sulcoski's creative collection begins with accessible instructions and tips for using the yarn, then offers knitters 24 fresh and exciting options. The original designs-11 beginner, 11 intermediate, and two advanced- feature shawls, scarves, sweaters, fingerless mittens, and more by beloved designers like Fiona Ellis and Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton.

Reviews

"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 Self-striping yarns feature long, alternating repeats of color, creating a striped (or patterned) effect when knit.
