What the World Needs Now is a sock design that is full of surprises. If you reverse the colors on the second sock, as I have done, the two socks still make an obvious pair. By switching up the colors, you solve the dreaded second-sock syndrome. Plus, by reversing the colors, you can make the pair with only two balls of Knit Picks Stroll 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. I have included important information on color dominance. And, 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. (pocket optional) And, these socks are machine washable!
