Sometimes, something seemingly simple can reveal hidden secrets between the folds. These socks are just that - worked in a foot hugging 1x1 rib, they look like simple socks with broad stripes. As soon as you pull them on your feet however, a more subtle color change is revealed, changing from broad stripes to a more gradient like transition.
Choose contrasting colors like we did, or make your socks in more complementary colors to get an ombre effect. The possibilities are endless!
