Nov 2015: Pattern has been completely updated with simpler, easy to follow instructions.

This is a very easy pattern, great for a beginner and great for using up oddments of sock yarn.

The pair use a total of 150 – 200 yards of 4ply sock yarn.

These are very stretchy socks and can be easily lengthened or shortened so will fit a child aged approx 3 - 6yrs.

To make larger socks, that will fit a child aged from approx 5 - 9yrs use sport weight yarn and 3mm / US2.5 needles.
