  • Little Pickle Knits baby socks are here! 12 June 2017 | View comments

  • Hi there

    As promised, I am just writing to let you know that some Little Pickle Knits socks are here! You can find them all in  WHAT'S NEW!

    Little Baa Baa Baby Socks

    Little Tulip Baby Socks

    Little Heart Baby socks

    Little Duckling Baby Socks

    The socks shown in this post have been knitted flat and seamed and the pictures have been worked in intarsia.
    If you haven't tried intarsia these little socks would be a simple first project for you.

    This pattern has instructions for both flat knitting on single pointed needles and in the round on dpns. 
    If you do choose to knit these little baby socks in the round, you will Swiss darn (duplicate stitch) the pictures onto your socks after knitting instead of working in intarsia. 

    Swiss darning the picture knit is also an easy option for new knitters!

    I have designed these socks with a super simple heel turn, no wrapped stitches, and using the little eyelet as a design detail. If you are new to sock knitting these could be the socks for you!
    Experienced sock knitters can of course choose to wrap the stitches at the heel turn if preferred.  

    I hope you love my Little Pickle Knit baby socks.

    Oh yes, I almost forgot to say......  my Little Cars Baby Socks  and Little Robins Baby Socks are next!

    Speak soon
