How to knit the easiest and cutest baby socks in the world.

In this week’s tutorial, we look at the lefteover yarns you’ll get after you’ve knitted a pair of socks using the ARNE & CARLOS Regia yarn. As many of you already know, you’ll need either 1 ball of 100 grams sock yarn or 2 balls of 50 grams sock yarn to knit a pair of socks, which means that you’ll have a lot of leftover yarn. And the solution is pretty simple: Just go ahead and knit the cutest baby socks in the world using our super easy heel techniques.

Here is the tutorial:

 

Baby Sock Pattern

Needles: 2 set of 5 dpns in sizes  2,5mm  and  3mm (US size 1.5 and 2)

Yarn: Left over yarn from  the ARNE & CARLOS Regia Design Line. You can buy the yarn here

For the size below, you’ll use approximately 10 grams of yarn. This size will fit a toddler.

Start on the toe:

Cast on 8 sts over dpn US 2.5 / 3 mm. Divide these over 4 dpn = 2 sts per ndl.

Rnd 1: Knit 8.

Inc in the sides:

Rnd 2: K1, inc 1, k2, inc 1, k2, inc 1, k2, inc 1, k1.

Rnd 3: knit 12

Rnd 4: K1, inc 1, k4, inc 1, k2, inc 1, k4, inc 1, k1.

Rnd 5: knit 16

Continue knitting around with inc 4 on every second round.  Stop inc when you have the width that matches the baby’s foot.

For this size you’ll need to have a total of 9 sts on each needle.

When the sock is up to where the ankle bone is, you start the heel. We knit 15 rnds for our sock. The heel is knitted like this:

Work heel over 2 sts, back and forth,  since the pattern is in the yarn you can work on needle 1 and 2 = 18

Ndl 16: sl 1, k12, k2tog, M1 knitwise, in the upper leg on the st under the last st of k2tog.

Ndl 17: sl 1, p13, p2tog, M1 purlwise in the upper leg on the st under the last st of p2tog.

Ndl 18: sl 1, k14, k2tog, M1 knitwise, in the upper leg on the st under the last st of k2tog.

Ndl 19: sl 1, p15, p2tog, M1 purlwise in the upper leg on the st under the last st of p2tog.

Start knit stockinette on the round again from here:

Our sock has 20 rnds and ends with 12 rnds of 2k, 2p rib. When you do the rib  change to a smaller needle if you like to. That will make the rib tighter, which is nice for a sck.

Sew ends and make the second pair in the same way.
