K, I have decided that I need a pattern for toddler socks in fingering weight. I can no longer kid myself.
Cute, right? Yeah, they don’t fit. They’re too small. I cast on 30 stitches and D’s feet are just too fat. So, I adjusted…
Not so cute…I cast on 40 and they don’t fit either. I can’t really explain it, they just won’t stay on. And they are funky looking.
The pattern I’ve been using is the Cozy Kids Socks from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. The pattern is cute and I’m sure I could use it to make adorable socks…if I used the worsted weight it calls for. Fingering weight, however, doesn’t work.
So, I’ve decided to stop trying to knit D socks until I find a pattern using fingering weight to make socks for wee ones. Well, I might try the above mentioned pattern with worsted and see how that works, but it’s really for older kid’s feet.
Grrr, you’d think baby socks would be easy…
