I designed the socks in a variegated yarn but had a variety of dye styles from the tests. I loved the ones that were done in a solid so the pattern really popped. I think the only dye style I would probably not knit these in is a self-patterning.
I think both the pattern in the sock and the pattern in the yarn would hide each other. You won't get the full effect of the self-patterning yarn (which is amazing) but you also won't see the work that is put into the pattern.
This pattern is an 8 stitches repeat so the cast-on sizes are 56, 64, and 72. There really isn't an easy way to add or takeaway stitches for this one.
P.S. As always, this pattern is set up with a 'Pay What You Can' scale, meaning there are coupons codes to use on Ravelry that set the cost from 4.99-7.99. This means that the knitter gets to decide what to pay and makes my patterns more accessible while also giving me a fair wage.
