How To Create Newborn Knee-High Socks FREE PATTERN!

What a glorious day today is!  It is sunny and about 65 degrees outside!  Also, whats make this day good is that I have returned to my blog today with a new creation that I am in love with!  Last year I created a few patterns for knee-high socks for women/ladies that are in previous blog post click here to see http://www.offthehookbychrissy.com/click-through-to-see-knee-highs-that-will-keep-you-warm/

Well I have started my new Etsy shop http://www.preciousangelbabes.etsy.com  I think I spoke about the new shop earlier this year.  Any way it is a shop for newborn photo props, hats, blankets and accessories.  So I thought why not make some newborn knee-high socks that are a first as far as I know.  You always see baby booties and ankle height socks but no Knee-highs.  These little bitty socks are so cute!!!  Think of newborn photos that have babies just in legwarmers and headbands, now imagine the same baby in knee-high socks and headbands.  Super cute and I’m going to make my newest grand-baby Skylar who is due October 10th this year…yes did I say new grand-baby coming!!!!   That’s right and I CAN’T WAIT!!!  If you want patterns for traditional baby booties with a modern flair click picture below to see other unique patterns.

Modern Baby Booties

It took me 1/2  a day to get the pattern right for size, as the first pair I made came out size 3 for a toddler instead of a newborn size!!!   Eeeck!!!!  These socks include surface crochet which gives the multi colored socks extra punch of color.  Here is a GREAT tutorial for surface crochet from Dedri from “Look at what I made” shop.  http://www.lookatwhatimade.net/crafts/yarn/crochet/crochet-tutorials/crochet-surface-slip-stitches/                        I crocheted these socks using 4 different colors however, you can use 3 or even more than 4 if you wanted to.

As far as my color inspiration you can visit my Pinterest board titled https://www.pinterest.com/OTHByChrissy/inspiration-for-offthehookbychrissy-designs/

Just remember you have to weave in all of those ends!!!  

This pattern is relatively easy with the heel being the hardest part to understand.  Hopefully my tutorial and wording are so you can understand easily.  If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.  

Looking forward to hearing what you all think of this new pattern
