These adorable quick-to-knit stocking-socks are cozy and not as easy to kick off as regular booties.

The pattern includes 3 variations for the pattern on the front of the stocking-sock and uses short-row shaping for the knee pad and heel. The garter stitch knee pad provides some extra cushioning for those speedy crawlers!

Both written instructions and charts for the front pattern stitches are included.


  • Knit in the round on 3 double-pointed needles;
  • Knit top (cuff) down;
  • No seaming;
  • Toe may be grafted (Kitchener stitch) or finished with a 3-needle bind-off.

Skills / Stitches Used: knit, purl, k2tog, work short rows, twist stitches, ssk, grafting {optional} or 3-needle bind-off, knit in the round, knit through back of loop, yarn over.
