tired of working plain stockinette with strong self-striping yarns? here’s a pattern that adds a bit of interest for a nice change of pace. a shifting twisted rib with great stitch definition that stands out against, but doesn’t fight with, a great colorway.

shown here in twisted fiber art arial, colorway batty

  1. I’ve been looking for something cool to do with the STR Knitters Without Borders I got – I think this is it!

  2. I really like this sock and the colorway. It’s different for me, in that I usually like semi-solids, but this pattern and the colorway I love!

  3. oh sure — you post this pattern right after I turned the heel on a jaywalker in self-striping. Sigh. Another beautiful pattern… 😀

  4. Shifty! What a great name! Your garden is inspiring, too. Ours is quite minimalist this year—we’ve got tomatoes, onions, peppers, basil. (Sounds like a recipe for pasta sauce!)

  5. Interesting texture, wonderful color…two of my favorite things! Shifty is a winner!

  6. I’m so glad I found your blog I love your socks. This is a must have, I have so much self striping yarn and yes I’m tried of just doing stockinette.

  7. I really like these socks Anne. . . they are really way cool. You’re such a genius. . . .

  8. Oh I adore this pattern! It’s just perfect for that kind of sock yarn. I’m always on the lookout for something that will work with the busier yarns. Thank you!
