Nothing is quite so cute as the teeny tininess of a newborn baby’s plump, little feet. In ode to those precious paws, we’ve used our softest, finest merino yarn to knit these teeny socks adorned with tiny cables.

Although small, these Knit Layette Socks are filled with pretty details, and in Line Weight’s beautiful colors, they also pack a punch. This project is so mini, you can pick a handful of colors like you’re picking flowers. The more the merrier!
