If you’re new to sock knitting, baby socks are a great place to start because they’ll teach you all the basics of top-down sock knitting, in an adorable little package. Additionally, even small skeins of fingering weight yarn are big enough to knit at least three socks, meaning you’ll have enough yardage for a learning sock and then a full pair.

If you’re already a sock knitter, baby socks offer all the joys of sock knitting, but really, really fast. They’re a great gift, an easy item to have on hand for any babies you know (or are expecting), and a tonne of fun to knit.

This pattern is for baby socks, but comes with additional instructions for knitting adult-sized basic boot socks. Learn the basics on a small project and then move on to something for you!

(Please note: This pattern was updated on Feb. 29, 2016 to clarify the heel flap and gusset direction. The directions on the website are correct, but if you downloaded the pdf prior to this date, you may want to go look at the update.)
