What you need to know

Beginner baby sock knitting pattern using DK yarn, designed by Lucinda Ganderton

Unlike many sock patterns, this project is completed using two needles only, with no heel turning involved – making it much easier for those still getting used to yarn craft! Each sock is individually worked up as one flat piece, starting from the cuff and then working down to the toe and up the underside of the sock to the heel. The sock is finished off by sewing the seams with a neat mattress stitch.


To fit age: 0-3 months
