Striped Mochi Socks
Yarn: Mini Mochi, 80% Merino Wool/20% Nylon, Colorway 107
Pattern: Personal pattern, knitted top down
Needles: #1 (2.2mm) dpns
Comments: The yarn is wonderfully soft but I found myself splitting it at times. I had two different dye lots, and although there was no discernible difference in the color, I decided to do a two-row stripe, carrying the yarn up as I knit. One of the skeins had two knots and some skinny spots. The overall effect of the non-matching stripes is pleasing to me and the fit is soft and comfy.
