How many stitches to cast on for Bay socks
I have knitted a baby blanket for my daughter-in-law's friend and would like to include a pair of socks with the blanket before I mail it off to my daughter-in-law so she can get it to her friend.
I will be using the same yarn the blanket was knitted with , it is Lion Brand Baby Soft light 3. I will be using Magic loop with a size 2 or 3 needle so how many stitches do I need to cast on, for toe up knitting?

What size socks are you making? At about 7 sts/inch for adult socks I cast on 12 or 14 per needle, 24 or 28 total.

Is Bay socks a pattern?

Here's a Toe-Up Baby Socks pattern you can use or use as a reference. It calls for 8 sts. on two needles to start. It says sz. 2 needles so it should work for you if you're using sz. 2's. There were a lot more toe-up baby socks on Rav. That's the one I grabbed to look at.

Matching blanket and socks, such a cool idea.
