Knee Socks Pattern (Free Pattern)

Added: Sunday, June 28th 2009 at 5:28pm by nittineedles

This pattern is copied from the vintage pattern book, Beehive for Bairns, Volume 2.

I suggest 50g/2 oz of baby yarn and size 3.25mm/3 US needles for the three month size.

(H)  Baby's Bootees

Cast on 36 sts.  Work 2 ins. ribbing (K2. P2).  Proceed:-

1st row:  K24.  Turn.  2nd row:  K12.  Turn.  3rd row:  K13. Turn.  4th row:  K14.  Turn.  5th row:  K15.  Turn.  6th row: K16.  Turn.  Continue in this manner until all sts. are worked onto one needle.  Continue even in Garter st. until work measures 4.5 ins. from beginning at side edge.  Next row: K1.  K2tog.  Knit to last 3 sts.  K2tog.  K1.  Knit 3 rows even.  Repeat last 4 rows twice.  30 sts. on needle.  Continue even in Garter st. until work from beginning measures 6.5 ins. at side edge.  Proceed:-

To make toe:  K20.  Turn.  K10.  Turn.  Working on these 10 sts. knit 18 rows (9 ridges) for toe flap.

To make foot:  Pick up and knit 9 sts. along side of toe flap.  Knit remaining 10 sts.  Next row: K29.  Pick up and knit 9 sts. along other side of toe flap.  Knit remaining 10 sts.  48 sts. on needle.  Knit 4 ridges.  Next row:  K1.  K2tog.  Knit to centre 4 sts.  (K2tog.) twice.  Knit to last 3 sts.  K2tog.  K1.  Next row:  Knit.  Repeat these 2 rows twice.  Cast off.  Sew leg and foot seam.  Make another bootee to correspond.

{#thanks.gif}  I started the sweater... pictures soon. It's been a while since I knit anything with small needles, so I'm going slower than usual. But I cannot wait to see how this all turns out. Baby Whozerwhatzits will look soooo spiffy!

You're welcome.  I'm looking forward to the pictures.

These are the most interesting socks.  I have never seen any like them except maybe your picture on Ravelry.  ;-)

Neither have I.  That's precisely why I posted this pattern. 

{#apploud.gif} Thanks!

Thanks for the pattern.  I have been looking for something a little different for a baby gift. 

You're welcome.

This pattern is fabulous. I am currently knitting my second pair. First ones I did in red and they looked great! Thanks

{#awesome.gif}  I love baby clothes in non-traditional colours.

Do you have a similar pattern for toddlers?

Sorry, no.  Only the baby size.

Could you post the diaper covers?? Please :)

this is my first time trying this pattern but i AM STOCK HERE (Repeat last 4 rows twice) which is one of the sentences before to make the toe

This part (the previous 4 rows) should be worked two more times:

Next row:  K1.  K2tog.  Knit to last 3 sts.  K2tog.  K1.  Knit 3 rows even.

A tutorial to watch would be helpful. Thanks for the pattern.

I knit these booties when I was 12 years old.  They were the first knitted item I had ever finished and they turned out so well I have continued to knit for another 50+ years.  Had they been troublesome or not looked nice when I finished I doubt I would have ever picked up a pair of needles again.
