Baby Socks for Charity
Through the years I’ve often knitted for Afghans for Afghans, a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that sends hand-knit sweaters, vests, hats, mittens, and socks to the people of Afghanistan. (www. http://afghansforafghans.org). A recent call for baby socks inspired me to write out the directions I use. These are top-down socks knitted in the round on 4 needles, with a heel flap. Toes are Kitchener stitch closed. Ribbing helps to hold the socks on squirmy babies’ feet. This pattern is sized for a 6- to 12-month old, based on guidelines from the Craft Yarn Council. These tiny socks are a perfect way to warm up babies and to use up the leftover yarn from your other sock projects.
