OK ths is going to sound silly but I have to ask. What is the deal with sws yarn?? Self striping?? I love your bags. Does the self striping only work for certain patters? I know....sounds totally stupid but I'm new to crochet and only been here for a few days. LOL

BTW Scarlett, the fbb is in Debbie Stoller's book. I borrowed it from the library and then ended up buying the book. LOL

I used to think self striping yarn was magic until I got a good look at some out of the skein. I made a little picture for ya...

See, the top line is some self striping "yarn" all spread out. It's dyed in a series of different colors. Each color gets a certain length, like say one yard or something. When it's knitted or crocheted, these lengths of color sort of fold over on each other, and since they are usually longer than the width of your project, they make stripes. Most patterns will keep the striping, but the width of your rows affects how fat the stripes are. For example, the skinnier "scarf" on the left has fatter stripes than the wider project on the right. The black arrow points out something that happens a lot with self striping yarns, that is, the chunk of color ends in the middle of a row and not neatly on the ends.
Hopefully that makes sense!

Thanks Amy! That's kind of how I figured it worked. So it works better with some patterns than others...well not really better, just differently. lol
