Important Notes
- This sock is knit from the cuff down with a heel flap and gusset design.

  • The sock can be knit using magic loop or on DPNs: whichever you prefer!

  • My total weight of each sock is always around 8 grams, but I gave some extra yardage in case you knit at a different gauge or making a slightly longer leg. If you are planning on knitting a longer leg or larger stocking, you will need more yarn!

  • These socks were not designed to fit a baby or child’s foot, but you can change the size by casting on more or less stitches, and knitting a longer or shorter foot. Just measure the intended little person’s foot and then adjust accordingly!

  • The sock blockers were purchased at Susan’s Fiber Shop – though there are many patterns online for creating your own easily with card stock or cardboard!
