Self Striping Sock Yarn

Ok, I'm new to sock knitting and my mother and I have taken some classes and are combining our knowledge to try our first socks this weekend. A lady at the zoo even gave me a skein of Opal self-striping sock yarn!
However, one of my instructors (Nancy Weisman to be exact) said that in order for the self striping yarn to actually stripe correctly, you have to have the exact right foot measurements, gauge, and pattern. This sock yarn didn't come with a pattern. If I use some universal sock pattern, making sure my gauge is right (right as in what's on the label), what are the odds that it will stripe the way it is supposed to?
