Baby Socks Pattern


Our Baby Socks are so insanely adorable and tiny, they make the perfect night-before-the-baby-shower gift! Sized from newborn to 1 year-old babies, use this Baby Socks Pattern to make an heirloom set of top-down socks that covers baby’s feet throughout his or her first year. One incredibly soft skein of Season Alpaca makes 4 or even 5 pairs of Baby Socks. Please click Product Details, above, for more information about materials, gauge, and sizes. NOTE: This same pattern is featured in Joelle Hoverson’s More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. If you own that book, just follow the directions as given, using Season Alpaca instead of the recommended yarn. If you don’t have the book, we’re sad to report that it is no longer in print but happy to say this Baby Socks Pattern is!
