FLOCKED SOCK is a design inspired by those textured wallpapers of the same name. I have always liked the symmetry of the flocked patterns, and I really like the curls and frills in knitted items, namely socks. If you reverse the colors on the second sock, not only will you be making a great-looking pair of socks, but also by switching up the colors, you solve the dreaded second-sock syndrome. Another plus is that, by reversing the colors, you can make the pair with only two balls of Knit Picks Stoll Sock yarn. (If you make both socks the same, you will want to order an additional ball of the background color.) Because the socks are stranded, you achieve double the warmth of a single strand of yarn without any bulk. The pattern also contains instructions for my signature now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t secret pocket for securing a key or cash. When the top cuff is folded down, the pocket opening is completely hidden. And, these socks are machine washable! (Change size by using smaller or larger needle--see sizing information.)
