Baby Socks

Joining in with Ginny at Small Things today for her Yarn Along.

Baby Socks on Two Needles




Using size 3 needles and DK weight yarn

Cast on 28 stitches

Knit about 8 rows in a rib - knit one, purl one across the row

Continue in stockinette stitch knit one row, purl the next for the desired length of the sock.

Now decrease 7 stitches at the beginning and end of the next row.

Continue knitting in stockinette stitch for approximately 3 inches or until desired length.

Now shape for toe.

Decrease at the beginning and end of the next rows until 7 stitches remain.

Now increase at the beginning and end of the next rows until back up to 14 stitches.

Continue knitting in stockinette until bottom of sock measures the same as the top.

Now shape for heal in the same way you did for the toe.

Cast off.

Seam up the back center of the ribbing. Sew up the "angles" on both the heel and the toe. Sew the heel to the bottom of the ribbing/top part of sock; and then seam up both sides of the sock.


Sorry I don't have any cute baby feet to show wearing them, yet.

Warm wishes, Tonya

  10. Those are adorable! Tell me what DK weight is. Is it the light fingering weight?

  12. Can you believe something so small will be able to wear these?! What an interesting way to make socks, too:)

  13. DK weight yarn is about the same as fingering weight. The great thing about this pattern is you can add up or down in multiples of four and use different weight yarns and size needles to make all the way up to adult sizes.
