Crochet Newborn Baby Socks Pattern
I always love making baby items since they are so small and cute. They can also be completed quickly if you need a last minute baby shower gift. My friends had gone to Asia recently and brought me back this amazing alpaca yarn that I had to make baby socks with. They are so soft to the touch and I can just imagine them on a newborn.
Here is the pattern:
5.00 mm (H) Hook
Round 1: 6 SC into MR (6)
Round 2: 2 SC into each stitch (12)
Round 3: *1 SC, then 2 SC in next stitch.* Repeat from * to * around (18)
Round 4 - 12: 1 SC into each stitch (18)
Round 13: SC into next 9 stitches. Turn. (9)
Round 14 - 19: CH 1. SC into next 9 stitches. Turn. (9)
Round 20: Fold sock in half and SLST the two sides together. CH 1. SC in next 22 stitches. (22)
Round 21 - 22: 1 SC into each stitch (22)
Round 23: 1 SC into next 7 stitches, SC2TOG, 1 SC into next 4 stitches, SC2TOG, 1 SC into next 7 stitches. (20)
FO. Leave a long tail to sew the back heel of the sock together.
Note: I have provided a link to Glenda of Creative Grandma's for instructions on how to slip stitch the heel of the socks together in Round 20, her videos are clear and easy to follow!
I whipped these up on my flight over to England and in between movie watching and trying to take a nap I completed them pretty quickly. Enjoy making a pair for your newborn family or friend.
