Easy Baby Garter Stitch Tube Socks

October 2008
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
US 8 - 5.0 mm
This pattern is available for free.

The last year or so, I’ve been knitting or crocheting baby booties for charity. They go into newborn kits for moms who don’t have anything for their new babies and the kit contains a few essentials. It’s a nice little project to carry around or work on here and there and still get something finished. I tried various patterns that I found online and liked the tube sock concept best because it seems like it will stay on without a tangly tie and also fit a growing baby’s foot the longest.

This is knitted flat and after the ribbing, it is all garter stitch so very simple to knit. It could be done in the round but is much faster knit flat, even with the seam-sewing time. It’s such an easy pattern that after the first one, you’ll pretty much have it memorized. There are versions for worsted weight and sport weight yarn.
