Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
Do you ever find yourself in need of a baby gift without much time to make anything? I do! I decided to make up a pair of squishy, sweet baby socks for a situation just like this. In about the same time it would take to go shopping, pick out a gift and wrap it, you could make up this incredibly fast pair of handknit baby socks.
The ribbed cuff and top of the foot make the socks stretchy so they will fit even the chubbiest baby foot around. The chubbier the baby foot the better in my book.
Here is some information you will need to know for this pattern:
Sizes:Up to 1 yr. (1-2 yrs., 2-3 yrs.)
Finished length of sock from the back of the heel to the toe: 4-inches (5-inches, 6-inches)
Note: Foot size varies greatly in babies and toddlers. The socks are very stretchy due to the rib and will fit a wide variety of sizes. Measuring the baby foot length is always best.
Yarn: Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 100 grams/160 yards), 1 skein in Jellybean #7513 OR 1 skein of any color in Sweater
Needles: US size 7 double-pointed needles, set of 4 or size to obtain gauge
Gauge: 5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
Ruler or tape measure
I used the new colorway of Spud & Chloë Sweater called Jelly Bean #7513. It reminds me of a perfect juicy raspberry.
I have another pair of baby socks on the needles right now. I am making this pair in the other new Sweater shade called, Turtle #7514. Green is always good and you really can’t go wrong when your green is named turtle. Love it.
Anyway, have fun whipping up some fantastic baby socks for the little jelly beans in your life!
