Pattern Details

This listing is for an instant download of a knitting pattern for a pair of Magic Spiral baby socks. The pattern comes in three sizes: Newborn to six months 6 to 12 months 1 to 2 years The magic thing about these socks is the fact that they are very easy to knit as they do not require you to turn a heel. The pattern forms a spiral and will fit on baby's foot no matter how you slip them on. No more fiddling to get the heel to be in the right place. Just pop them on and bingo - a perfect fit! The other advantage is that babies feet do not really outgrow them as there is no heel, they just get a bit shorter as baby's foot grows. I made them from quality self striping European sock yarn which is both soft and absorbent. You can use any 4 ply sock or baby wool you like. You need 2.5 mm metric or US 2 DPN needles. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl knit in the round GAUGE 28 st and 40 rows make 10cm or 4 inch square SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 6-12 months 1-2 years 0-6 months PREFERRED BRAND/YARN any sock yarn COLORWAY self striping or plain

I am a fashion/ textile designer and mother of six children. Over time I have designed and knitted as well as sewn hundreds of items of baby and childrens clothing. I am a designer specializing in innovative and practical children's wear that is timeless and understated. Sewing, knitting and designing for babies and children gives me special joy and freedom to be playful, nostalgic and quirky. I prefer natural yarns and fabrics as these don't just feel and look good, they also perform very well when used for children's garments. My belief is that children's wear should be fun, practical and comfortable as well as easy to care for. I am a highly creative person and there are a lot of artists, designers as well as dressmakers in my family and my great grandfather who was as a sewing machine engineer... Nothing quite compares with making something for your little one yourself. I encourage everyone with the urge to have a go. It's fun and a lot easier than you think! One of my daughters knitted a very simple blanket for her baby brother when she was 10 years old. It is by no means perfect but it has become a very special prized possession that both her and her brother will cherish for years to come. Empower yourself and have a go!
