Manly sock needed for self striping yarn
I need to get back to some yarn I bought to knit socks for the hubby. Problem is that it is hand painted, self striping....the stripes are inconsistant. I really want to have some sort of pattern for the cuff. I get soooo bored doing k3p1 for 12". Problem is that I cannot find a "manly" pattern that will look good with the striping yarn. Do I need to just suck it up and do knit purl or is there something I am missing about picking a stitch pattern?
