Do you know what is good? Baby socks. They’re little and cute, super fast to knit and they use up those little balls of leftover sock yarn that never seem to go away. I knit these for the sesame babe and chose a twisting rib pattern because, well, her socks twist around whether I want them to or not. This way, when they twist around her foot, maybe they’ll look like they’re supposed to be doing that. They also have some some ribbing on the top of the foot to help them stay on. She still pulls them off in 2 seconds but they look darn cute for those 2 seconds.
Know what else is good? I actually wrote up the pattern and you can download the pdf here!
Here are the details. Well, some of them.
These socks are a bit big for my 9 month old but not so big that she can’t wear them now. I think they’ll fit her for a while.
The directions are written for the magic loop, or 2 circular method because that’s how I knit socks. They’re toe-up and have a heel flap because I like heel flaps better than short rows. They’re toe up so that you can use up every last bit of those scraps of sock yarn you know you have lying around. The last thing I need is to attempt to use up my tiny ball of sock yarn, only to have an even tinier ball of sock yarn leftover. That’s not cool.
Know what is cool? My baby is asleep now. Thank the heavens. Oh yeah, a free pattern for my lovely readers is pretty cool too. Did I mention you can download it?
