Th is toe-up design, knit on two circular needles, begins with a Boxy Toe. A baby’s feet need room to wiggle, and are rather boxy-shaped, after all. The spandex or lycra-rich yarns are a pleasure to knit with, and the stretchy socks will stay on baby’s little feet. I call these Life Ring Socks because the rolls resemble the life preserver rings that hang beside swimming pools. The sock’s β€œLife Rings” can be bunched down to fit around the ankle, or pulled up like a knee sock, if baby is chilly. The elastic yarns also let the sock stretch to fit growing feet a little longer.
