- If using a striping yarn I’d drop the big centre band, I don’t think it would do anything for the design.
- If I was making the 2 border bands in a contrast colour I would make it a neutral (grey or brown) with a low to medium contrast to the main colours. A high contrast is too much for my delicate sensibilities (ie. no likey black).
- If using Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball I’d skip the border colour all together and let the yarn do all the work.
- If using Noro Silk Garden Sock I’d choose 2 colourways and alternate every other row. Alternately, you can use 2 skeins of the same colourway and start the first from the inside and the second from the outside, and alternate every other row.
