Pattern Description:

Please Note: As of January 1, 2015 this pattern will no longer be available on Craftsy due to the new European Union taxation rules that are coming into effect regulating digital sales. Patterns will still be available through (via for EU customers). We sincerely apologize and regret that we will no longer be able to sell through this wonderful community.
These adorable quick-to-knit stocking-socks are cozy and not as easy to kick off as regular booties.

The pattern includes **3 variations** for the pattern on the front of the socks and uses short-row shaping for the kneepad and heel. The garter stitch kneepad provides some extra cushioning for those speedy crawlers! The yarn is a wonderfully soft acrylic that is machine washable (and dryable if required).

Both written instructions and charts for the front pattern stitches are included.

Knit top down, in the round, on double-pointed needles. The toe may be grafted (Kitchener stitch) or finished with a 3-needle bind-off.
