Crochet Pattern: Super Simple Baby SocksBy Erin Burger – 15 Comments
This simple baby tube-sock pattern is perfect for beginners because of the easy-toe and easy construction. It’s also a great way to introduce a beginner to fingering weight (sock weight) yarn, which may seem like a daunting material at first. Sock yarn is great for Spring projects because of it’s light weight and is available at most stores in a variety of different fibers. This sock could fit a newborn up to six month old baby, depending on how stretchy your yarn is, maybe even older!
Different sizes can easily be created by chaining more or less for the length of the sock and making more rows to increase the width of the sock.
Finished Size: Uncuffed, socks measure 6″ (15.24 cm) in length and are 3″ (7.62 cm) wide at top
100 yards Fingering Weight Yarn
Crochet Hook E (3.50 mm)
Gauge: not needed for this pattern

Leave a long tail (at least 6″ long). Attach yarn to needle and working along short end of sock body, thread yarn in and out of each stitch, pull tight and knot to opposite side to create toe. With remaining yarn, hold the long sides of the sock together and whip stitch in each st up the back of the sock. Turn sock inside out. See Whip Stitch in Crochet for more information on joining the sock.
Finish off, weave in all ends. Make it pretty!
