Deluxe stripes is a worsted weight blend of 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon which makes it a wonderful choice for dorm socks or taller cuffed regular socks. Because it is knitted on larger needles it makes an ideal first sock project, but will also work well for shawls, hats or even throw blankets. The color changes are crisp for fun patterning. 100g/218 yds. Katherine's note: the Yankee Knitters sock pattern is a favorite - see under patterns, and it has directions for multiple sizes - babies through men, fingering through worsted weight yarns. It's an easy to follow pattern, great for those new to knitting socks.
