Wee Baby Socks
Wee Baby Socks
We've scaled down our favorite socks into three wee sizes perfect for baby. Using our Basic Sock pattern and our free instructions you can knit them up in a couple of hours each.
We love them in My First Regia, a perfect fingering-weight yarn for babies and children in a charming range of solids and variegated colors. Made especially soft and machine washable by a new mercerizing procedure, this yarn is as enjoyable in the hand as it is joyful to the eye. One tiny, perfect 25g skein will make a pair and a spare.
We've adjusted the sock size by changing needle sizes so our Karbonz Double Pointed 6" Sock Needle Set will have all the needles you need, and they are a dream to work with.
These socks make such a delightful gift and are so fun to knit that we find ourselves stockpiling them to have ready to give. The “ooohs” and “aaaahs” of recipients are just too much fun not to hear repeatedly. A little ribbing keeps these socks on wiggling feet and the colors knit up into something really sweet!
You can pick up the Basic Socks pattern, the free adaptation that explains how to alter the Basic Sock pattern for wee feet, and all 18 fabulous colors below, or go to My First Regia for more information about the yarn.
