FO--Baby Socks, Opal Petticoat yarn
I did these baby socks on the plane home from my MIL for Thanksgiving. I used my own "basic sock pattern"...tried to make it relatively the same size as other baby socks I have knit. I have no idea what age they will fit. I need to test them on my friend's twins. They are 3" long and 2" wide. Maybe some of you with baby experience can help me out with sizing here

I was experimenting with ways to BO the top, RE: slippage. I think the looser one may be too loose. I guess I'll know once I get the twins to take them for a test drive.

SO cute, Kempy!! Maybe the looser BO will turn into an adorable ruffle?

It is kind of ruffly, but loose...just want to make sure it stays on.

3" would be for a very young baby. My 2 year old has 6" long feet. (Only a knitter would know the length of their toddler's foot :rollseyes: )

VERY cute, Kemp! My little monkey is 8 months old and her feet are about 4 1/2 inches long...but, she's got some long arse feet. So, they'll probably fit a 6-9 month old.

Cute socks. But I've never known a baby to keep any socks on for long!
