Ribbed Socks for Kids-Free Pattern


Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Please note!!! Edited to add a correction: Gusset, Rnd 1: Needle 1: knit; Needle 2: (k3, p1) repeat to end of needle; Needle 3: knit

I am excited to offer you a new Spud & Chloë free pattern. This is a basic ribbed sock pattern using one skein of Fine, any color will work great. This pair is knit up in Clementine #7802. I used a set of four US size 2 double-pointed needles.


The pattern is for kids 4-10 years-old. The ribbed fabric is clingy and stretchy at the same time which is perfect to fit a wide range of foot sizes. The pattern is simple and a good way to start knitting socks if you haven’t tried before. These will go quickly and will teach you the basics of sock knitting in no time flat.

I hope you all grab a skein of Spud & Chloë Fine and fire up your needles to knit up a pair of ribbed socks for your favorite kid! You can throw them right in the wash with no troubles at all. The yarn softens with washing.

Have fun!

    Hi, my name is Iveta and I happened to find your site. I am a pro photographer, and I have tiny twin babies coming in. I would like to make couple of BIG ankle socks, to but them in, but not sure how. I have made sweaters, scarfs, hats before but no socks. Would you help me? ANy advice? I will keep searching, but have only a little time to make them. It would be wonderful if you could help. If not, thank you anyway!

    I found your sock pattern the other day and have already done the cuff and heel of the first one for my 7 year old grandson.

    I really love the pattern – the heel is the easiest I have tried (I am fairly new to sock knitting, started with cuff down, tried toe up, but prefer cuff down).

    I am using Regia self striping yarn, as the yarn you suggest is not available in the UK.

    This may become my default kids sock pattern.

    many thanks,

    Hi Iveta,
    Do you mean baby socks? If you do a search on Ravelry.com for baby socks, there are lots and lots of free patterns available for baby socks and booties that are like socks.

    We had a baby the day after Christmas and I took a photo of her in one of our largest Christmas stockings, it was very cute. I would look for Christmas Stocking patterns if that is the plan.
