For Dorina Louise

Well I hunted high and low on ravelry and could not find the original scource for the sock pattern so have typed it out for you:

For Babies Aged 6 weeks - 3 months

You'll need a left over ball of sock yarn and a set of 2.5mm double pointed needles.

Cast on 40 sts and divide these over three needles 10/20/10
For the cuff: k2, p2 for 40 rounds.

Heel:  Knit the stitches of needle 1 onto needle 3.  These 20 sts will form the heel side of the sock.  Purl one row.
Needle 1: slip 1, k1 all along the row.
Needle 2: slip 1st stitch purlwise, purl the entire row.
Work these two needle an additional 8 times, so in total 18 rows are knitted.

To turn the heel:

1. K11, ssk, k1, turn
2. slip 1 purlwise, P3, P2tog, P1, turn
3. slip 1, K4, ssk, K1, turn
4. slip 1 purlwise, P5, P2tog, P1, turn
5. slip 1, K6, ssk, K1, turn
6. slip 1 purlwise, P7, P2tog, P1, turn,
7. slip 1, K8, ssk, K1, turn
8. slip 1 purlwise, P9, P2tog, P1, turn
9. slip 1, K9, ssk, turn
10. slip 1 purlwise, P8, P2tog,turn

There are 10sts left on the needle.  Knit these 10 and pick up along both sides of the heel flap 13 stitches.

Needle 2 is knit in ribbing, starting p2,k2.
Divide the 36 sts equally over needle 1 and needle 3.

Foot Shaping:
 
Needle 1 : Knit until 3sts before the end, K2tog, K1
Needle 2 : Ribbing P2, K2
Needle 3 : K1, ssk, Knit until the end.

Repeat these needles a further seven times until you have 40 sts in total divided over three needles.  Continue to knit needle 1 and needle 3 and rib needle 2 until the foot has a reached a length of 3 inches/7.5 cms.

Toe Shaping:

Needle 1 : Knit until 3sts before the end, K2tog, K1
Needle 2 : K1, ssk, Knit until 3sts before the end, K2tog, K1
Needle 3 : K1, ssk, Knit until the end.

Repeat these decreases an additional four times.  Cut a length of wool from the ball, thread a darning needle and weave the needle through sts, pull the thread through.  To fasten off stitch through the toe of the sock on the reverse side and knot to secure your stitching.

Happy Knitting Dear Friend xoxo
