Yarndale have also teamed up with the fabulous West Yorkshire Spinners to create an exclusive colourway of their award winning Signature 4ply yarn, called Yarndale Hope. This colourful self-striping 4ply yarn would make a great choice for this crochet sock pattern too, so if you fancy getting your hands on some of this exclusive yarn you can find it here!
