I made myself a pair of mismatched striped socks. I had no intention of trying to get the stripes to match up, it would have been hard to do, so instead I I called them my Dobby Socks! (Dobby is a character from Harry Potter that wears mismatched socks)
Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks in Kool Stripes
Needle Size: US 1 1/2 (2.5mm) 9" circular needles
Pattern Source: Hermione's Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder (free Ravelry download)
The pattern repeat for these socks is really simple, I memorized it and was even able to knit the leg for the second sock during a short car ride (less than an hour). They fit really well and the colour changes don't interfere with the pattern.
