Sobrino Socks
by Lauren Slagle (lolodidit) #sobrinosocks #lolodidit

We recently welcomed our nephew into the family! While on the plane coming home from our first visit with him, I started knitting him some sweet little socks. I made up the pattern, using my own short row heel, and the socks are so adorable I had to share them with all of you!

I named these socks sobrino, which means nephew in Spanish.

I have included sizes ranging from Newborn to 18 months based on average baby sizes in the US. All babies are unique, so please keep that in mind when knitting for a loved one. These stretchy socks have a good amount of negative ease, but when in doubt, knit a size up. Babies grow fast!

Quantities used will vary based on gauge, cuff length and whether you do contrast heels. The pattern is written for a contrast stripe at the toe instead of a full contrast toe.
