Vintage Pique’ Rib Baby Socks Knitting Pattern

Free Knitting Pattern - Vintage Pique Rib Socks | Simplynotable.com

Here’s those socks I promised to match the Vintage Pique Rib Hat pattern I last posted! These are designed to fit a newborn but are stretchy enough that they’ll grow with baby for awhile. Knit toe up, you can use every last bit of sock weight leftovers by making a taller or shorter cuff. Knit using your favorite method.

size: newborn
gauge: 9 stitches and 13 rows/inch in stockinette
materials: Superwash Fingering Weight Sock Yarn
2.5 mm needles or size needed to achieve gauge (double points or long circular for magic loop knitting)

Abbreviations: 

kfb = knit in the front and back of the same stitch
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together
p2tog = purl 2 stitches together
ssk = slip, slip, knit (slip one stitch knitwise, then slip second stitch knitwise. Knit them both together)
m1 = make 1 (pick up the bar between stitches with your left-hand needle from front to back then knit through the back)

Instructions:

Toe:

cast on 16 stitches, (8 on each needle) using Turkish cast on or Judy’s Magic cast on. I personally prefer the turkish cast on for toe up socks.

round 1: (k1, kfb, knit to last 2 stitches on needle, kfb, k1) repeat for second needle
round 2: knit around

repeat the above two rounds until you have 36 stitches total, (18 on each needle)

Foot:

Stitches are divided in half, with half being the upper side of the foot with decorative pattern and the other half being the bottom of the foot, which is always knit in stockinette. First half of stitches will be called needle 1 and second half of stitches will be called needle 2. (When using double points, I like to have each half of the stitches divided between two double points for ease of knitting)

round 1:

needle 1: k2, p2, k1, p3, k1, m1, k1, p3, k1, p2, k2
needle 2: knit

round 2:

needle 1: knit in pattern, (knit the knit stitches and m1; purl the purl stitches)
needle 2: knit

round 3:

needle 1: knit in pattern
needle 2: knit

round 4:

needle 1: k2,  purl to last 2 stitches, k2
needle 2: knit

Knit the following Vintage Pique Rib Stitch Pattern three times (for a total of 12 rounds)

    These are adorable!! I’m going to make them for a baby, soon-to-be-born, but I’d love to have a pair for myself :-)

    I’m happy to report I’m halfway to a pair. :) it’s an adorable sock and I’m hoping I have enough yarn to eke out the matching hat.

    I am so glad I found this pattern. I will be knitting a few pairs of them for my next grandchild due sometime in April 2015.
