Baby Socks Knitting Pattern- classic cuffed socks that make a great gift!
I’m generally not a fan of knitting socks for 2 reasons- #1 Double point needles and #2 they take too long to make only to be hidden inside shoes. I made an exception for baby socks though. Since they’re so tiny, they don’t take long to make. They also make a great scrap-busting project!
