3 knitting patterns baby socks I want to knit because they have longer cuffs that babies can’t kick off.
Happy Toes Baby Socks
Loose socks or booties tend to come off when babies kick their legs. This one is designed to stay put. It is knitted from the ribbed cuff to the toe. The toe is closed by using the kitchener graft technique.
The pattern includes information about the gauge and accessories you will need. It is divided clearly into several sections focusing on each part of the construction: Cuff, Leg, Heel, Heel Flap, Gusset, Foot, and Toe.
The hole in the toe is closed or grafted together using the kitchener graft stitch.
The kitchener grafting technique presented here isn’t as well written as another one that I have come across. If you are new to kitchener grafting, I highly recommend learning it from TECHknitter at http://techknitting.blogspot.sg/2007/05/easier-way-to-kitchener-stitch-also.html.
The yarn used in this pattern is Red Heart Baby Econo. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued by Red Heart. For suggested substitutes, you can use Yarnsub.com or look for worsted weight, plied, 100% acrylic wool.
