I've got a really lush dark greens with flashes of golds fingering weight sock yarn and I want to do something great with it, but the yarn is too dark for say the Monkey pattern by cookie a. I can't think of what to do with it! I want to knit something fun that will show off the quality of the yarn.

Ideas?

Thanks knittinghelp peeps!:hug:

This is a link to the Tidal Wave socks, the last pair I made in a dark rust solid merino/silk blend from KP. The pattern is very easy and they look simply smashing if I do say so myself.

thats a cool pattern, it looks a lot like the pomatomus sock pattern from knitty! i think i am going to use this instead (so i don't have to read a chart!!):cheering:

I'd make it something with holes as texture can disappear too easily in dark wool.

Actually, I used the chart. It's such a simple pattern (tho' I think it looks more involved) that it was good chart-reading practice. I kept track of where I was using a post-it to mark the line I was on.
