Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Here’s a little heads up for you today, next week I am posting a sock knitting project for you to knit for little feet. This is the perfect project to try out a basic pair of socks for the first time. It is also a great pair of socks for any level sock knitter to whip up quickly. These socks are not a huge yarn and time commitment because the cuff and foot of the sock are short. You can get a pair of socks out of one skein of Spud & Chloë Fine. Any color will be wonderful or maybe you’ll want to stripe a few together and then you’d be able to get a few pair of kids socks.

Fine washes in the machine and I even threw this pair in the dryer on low and they came out beautifully. I knit up the sample pair for my daughter on US size 2 double-pointed needles but you’ll need to see what size needles you need to get gauge (7 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch).

The pattern will knit up a pair of socks to fit kids who are 4-10 years old.

I hope you’ll get ready to knit some socks for kids with me next week! Have a great weekend and don’t forget to squeeze in some knitting time.
