Free Knitting Patterns that Look Great in Self-Striping Fingering Weight Yarn

Here’s a round up of some of our favorite free knitting patterns that look great in self-striping fingering weight yarns. You can find Washtenaw Wool Company self-striping yarns for sale in our Etsy shop!

Sockhead Slouch Hat

It uses a skein of fingering weight yarn — and who doesn’t have random, beautiful skeins of fingering weight yarn in their stash?! The simple stockinette fabric lets the yarn do all the talking. This hat is a great way to showcase a skein of special, hand-painted self-striping yarn.

ZickZack Scarf

If you are a wild child who cannot get enough color, this scarf can help alleviate some pressure. Knit with two complementary colorways of self-striping yarn, this meditative knit will make you feel like a million bucks.

 

 

 

 

Prisma Loop & Mitts

Skew Socks
