Free Children's Sock Knitting Pattern


This is a straightforward simple sock knitting pattern for children's sized socks.  This pair are knitted in Regia Softy which unfortunately doesn't seem to be availible anymore :( 

The pattern can be knitted with any good quality sock yarn.  I'm a big fan of Regia yarns, I really have had several pairs that have lasted more than 10 years of daily wearing and machine washing.

Cuff


Cast on 40 stitches and divide them over three double pointed needles 
12 on the first, 16 on the second and 12 on the third.


Knit 2 stitches, Purl 2 stitches to make K2, P2 rib.


Continue in K2, P2 rib until cuff measures 2cm.

Leg


Change yarn if desired.

Knit in the round until sock measures 8cm long.  

Heel

Change yarn if desired.


Separate 20 stitches for the heel.

K20 rows

Slip1, K14, SSK, Turn

Slip1, P10, P2tog, Turn
Slip1, K10, SSk, Turn
Repeat last 2 rows until 10 stitches remain.


Change yarn if desired.

Pick up and knit 10 stitches on each side of heel.


Split heel stitches evenly across 2 needles

InStep


K to last 3 st, SSK, K1
K foot top (20 sts)
K, K2tog, K to end

Repeat these 2 rows until 40 stitches remain.

Foot

Toe

Change yarn here if desired.

Arrange stitches over three double pointed needles 
10 on the first, 20 on the second and 10 on the third.

K to last 3 st, SSK, K1
K1, K2 Tog, K to last 3 sts, SSK, K1

Repeat this row until 8 stitches remain.

Move stitches onto 2 needles.
Cast off both needles at the same time.
