Favorite Self-Striping Projects
There is something incredibly addictive about knitting with self-striping yarn. That is why we love working with Uneek Worsted. Time flies by, when you are anticipating the next color.
When all you want to do is knit and watch the color unfold, these are the projects for you! Great projects for beginner knitters.
This pattern is for a set of 4 fingerless mitts or a hat. Knit with 1 skein of Uneek Worsted that you split into 2 balls. Stripes are alternated between balls. Note that because of the striping, the fingerless mitts will not be identical.
If you are in the mood to crochet try the Muirlands Cowl.
If you don't need things to match, try these:
Available Sizes: Child - Men's

16" US#7 and #4 needles
This hat uses one skein of a solid worsted (like Rios or Dream in Color Classy) and one skein of Uneek. The pictured hat was knit by a favorite customer Sara in Rios Lettuce and Uneek 4003.

A day away can be just the break you need. And while I know that Glen Ellyn is not Rhinebeck (home of the famous sheep and wool festival), it is a lovely spot for a day trip, especially in the Fall.

Now you can get to know members of the String Theory Community through our monthly customer spotlight - It's one small way we can weave a stronger community of makers during challenging times. We ask the same five questions (plus a rapid-fire style THIS or THAT) each month to a different String Theory customer.

On Saturday, a customer told me that she loves to knit but hates picking out the project and the yarn. I have heard this before, but I admit, the first time I heard it, I was shocked.
There are a lot of decisions to make everyday. We are happy to tell you what to make if you want us to. 😀
