Sprout loves my hand-knit socks. I enjoyed knitting this pattern and with this yarn so much (see my Confetti Cake Socks), I toddler-ized it for her. 🙂

The actual knitting did not take long, but I had to do some figuring and ripping/re-knitting to get a good fit.

Obviously, I adapted this pattern. I used this article from Knitty to determine the ratios for the number of heel stitches, heel flap rows, and gusset stitches based on the number of stitches around the top of the sock for Sprout’s size. If you visit this link, you can see my project notes on Ravelry for more information (even if you are not a member of Ravelry).
These socks fit her perfectly right now. There’s no telling how much longer they will fit, but they were fun to make anyway. 🙂

It’s far too difficult to get a good picture of toddler feet with fun socks on them. So just trust me, they are super-cute on her!
