Knit in a metallic silver yarn with alternating stripes of hot pink and dark gray wools. I was trying to use up the last bit of some very neon pink yarn (Silky Merino in 402 Hot Pink by Malabrigo).
The dark grey is a plain wool yarn, which helps add some stretch to the ribbed hem and counteract the very much not stretchy nature of the metallic yarn. The silver metallic yarn is a rather odd braided/i cord style acrylic novelty yarn with a strand of shiny silver running through it. Not my usual choice of yarn- but very fun with the hot pink stripes.
