Easy Baby Socks Knitting Pattern- knit flat and ideal for beginners!
Socks are usually my least favorite thing to knit. Whenever I work a small piece on double point needles I inevitably end up dropping stitches. Add in the turning heels and grafting toes and you have a frustrating knitting project, in my opinion at least.
This Easy Baby Socks Knitting Pattern is straightforward, beginner-friendly and best of all, it’s knit on single point needles! The booties are worked in garter stitch with a ribbed cuffed.
Note- I usually get a lot of questions about what “M1” means in a pattern. “M1” means “make 1 stitch”. It’s an increase that’s created between stitches. Here’s an illustration showing how M1 is done.
