Knit from the cuff down, beginning with an Estonian Cast On (photo tutorial included), the heart motifs are placed between defining purl rows. The heel is a classic slip stitch; stitches are picked up along the heel flap to work a plain gusset. The remainder of the sock is knit plain making this design a quick knit as well as soft on little feet ~ while still being special. Toes are grafted (Kitchener stitch - written instructions included).

Stitch marker; yarn needle for weaving in ends
