Jelly Bean Baby Socks – Free Pattern!

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

Yarn needle

Stitch marker


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!

    I also think the chubbier the better, they’re more delicious to nibble on! :-) , adorable pattern, I plan on making up a pair as a surprise to include in an Easter Itty Bitty swap I am in. Thanks for the pattern.

    These are too cute and gives me an idea for a baby gift for my brother and his wife. I would love for you to do a tutorial on knitting in the round on DPN’s – mostly how to join the round from the start. I usually start hats on circular needles and then switch to DPN’s, but I’m starting these socks today and am a bit perplexed. Anywho – I’m a HUGE fan and love your patterns and LOVE Spud & Chloe and Blue Sky Alpacas (mostly the dyed organic cottons). Keep up the good work!

    Just gorgeous Susan and big enough for my little boy in the largest size, definitely a winner :0)
    Logan has been asking for more woolly socks as last winters don’t fit anymore and it is definitely getting cooler in the mornings and evenings here in Australia now.
    Thank you, Love Mel x x

    I LOVE these little chubby socks. I daycare a 15 week old little guy who will be getting a pair of these sweet socks, AND I plan on making them with Spud and Chloe yarn. His sister is 22 months with REALLY chubby feet. I hope the large size will work for her.

    Thank you for this pattern. I had just found your site/blog the day before. I’m on my 2nd sock about to do the heel flap. I’ve always wanted to knit socks and not quite had the courage to try, but then I saw your pattern and thought how perfect to start with a pair in miniature. I’m making these for my nephew who is supposed to be born in April.
    I do have to say it is taking me much longer than a run to the store to pick out a gift though:)

    Thank you so much! I was trying to knit a blanket for a co-worker, in addition to organizing/completing a group baby quilt. I was running out of time, and these socks really fit the bill: adorable AND easy! I know she’ll adore them.

    I also finally realized what I’m doing wrong on the heel flaps of my socks, but that’s another story. ;o)

    Can you make this pattern with a short row heel instead of picking up stitches? I usually use Ann Bud’s baby sock patterns and have been using her heel for awhile. Anyway, I guess I can just alter the pattern myself.

    Thank you for this adorable pattern. I am using these socks on my Great American Afghan. There is a block in the Great American Afghan which has a pair of minature socks attached. I made this block for my son with his name, date of birth, time of birth, and birth weight. I am replacing the minature socks with the these Jelly Bean Socks. Too cute! I loved making this pattern and am certain I will use this pattern again and again! Such a fun, quick knit and the instructions are great!

    the url for the tutorial on the kitchener stitch (on pattern I downloaded from ravelry) doesn’t appear to be working…getting a page cannot be displayed error. do you have your tutorial somehwere else? I’ve made a bunch of these socks already for friends, but I’m not too happy with my attempt to finish them, I think I might be missing a step… any help would be awesome.

    Thank you for such a nice pattern. I do socks for an organization in the city where I lived – Longueuil, Quebec, Canada – and the lady who gives me the yarn does not always have sock yarn, so I was looking for a sock pattern with bigger yarn.

    Thank you from all the happy and warm feet !

    Kudos for creating content is on this particular subject. There is not a great deal of information published about it (not particularly helpful anyway). It is nice to see it receiving some more coverage. Cheers!

    Sure, I don’t see why not. I haven’t ever done that type of heel. Good luck and I hope it works out.
