More baby socks

More baby socks. Knitted over the last week or so; while spectating at doggie training, waiting outside music lessons, during the 15 minutes sitting in bed before lights out.

The Shepherd Merino 4-ply baby yarn knits up really well, and is perfect for little socks. This is an adaptation of my Perfect Baby Sock pattern; casting on 40 stitches instead of 32, and using 3.0mm DPNS. In fact, I didn't follow the pattern strictly at all, just because it's so stuck in my head. I carried K2, P2 ribbing all the way down the leg and front of the foot, reverting to stocking stitch when decreasing for the toe.

The foot length is 4 1/2" or 12cm, so they should fit 6-12 month old baby and will be just about right for baby R at Christmas!

    1. Thanks Annie! These little socks are terrific pocket-size projects for when you're out and about. :)


If you would like to leave me a comment, (just a line or two will do), then I will get back to you, and that would be like having a bit of a chat (and that's always nice). :)
