Does anyone make baby socks?
I've committed to making several pair of baby socks for We Care-Maine, a Ravelry group.

Not sure I like the pattern I chose. Sock on the right was made with worsted on #7 needles and sock on left was made with Knit Picks Swish on #5. Both are supposed to be for 3-6 month infant.

If anyone has a good pattern to recommend for 3-6 mos. I'd sure appreciate it.

What pattern did you use? I've not knit baby socks but have seen scads of patterns for them. What don't you like about this one to avoid in another pattern?

I think they're really cute.

Those are adorable socks, though I'm sorry the sizing didn't turn out the way you wanted.

I'm a fan of tube socks for babies. Here's a pattern on Ravelry for a cute simple pair.http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...mie-tube-socks

Pattern is Super Quick Baby Socks from Blossom Knitwear Designs which I found on Ravelry. Didn't like that first pair would fit a baby giant.

One more SQBS to complete third pair and these are next. I like seeing picture of socks on real-life baby.

Thank you!
