Secret Ingredient socks are luxuriously comfortable footwear with a little twist: a secret message! The socks are a classic knit that will give the wearer a smile while remaining office appropriate.

Construction is toe up in the round with a stockinette sole and a 1x1 Rib top. The heel is completed with short rows and then the 1x1 Rib is continued around the ankle and leg. The message can either be embroidered as text or duplicate stitched as Morse Code. Alphabet charts for both options are included.
