Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
Today I have the pattern for the two versions of the Ribbed Socks for Bigger Feet for you! I can’t wait to cast on a pair for myself to keep. I hope you’ll join me in making these practical, fun and simple socks. I tried to add extra tips and instruction notes along the way in the pattern for those of you who are new to sock knitting. It is a fun project for experienced and beginner sock knitters.
One interesting thing I’ve been hearing is that first time (and nervous) sock knitters have been starting out with the Jelly Bean Baby Socks free Spud & Chloë pattern. Then after seeing how do-able and simple it is they are moving on to adult sized socks. What a great idea.
Please note that my 10-year-old daughter’s feet are now a women’s size 7!

Have fun knitters with the perfect summer project. Socks! I always carry a sock on the needles around with me all summer long to the pool and other outdoor events. It is a small and simple project which makes it perfect for summertime knitting.
A side note, I have so many projects going for the free patterns for Spud says! I couldn’t wait to cast on for a hat in the Fine colors of Shitake and Red Hot. It is like heaven those two colors together. I’ll post a tease on that new hat project soon. I also have a couple of fun toys in the works!
