Jack Baby Socks by Debra Kinsey
Jack Baby Socks
These socks require intermediate knitting skills.
They are worked in one piece, without seams, from the cuff down, beginning with K1, P1 rib. After the stocking stitch instep is worked, the foot stitches are picked up and worked in garter stitch. The sole is worked in a contrast colour in stocking stitch and short rows create the shape. The sole is grafted closed using Kitchener Stitch.
