Basic Baby Socks on 2 Circs





by Tammy King


Size: Infant

Supplies: Sock yarn, less than ¼ of a 50 gram ball

Two size 1 circular needles

Two stitch markers

Cast on 40 stitches. Divide equally between the 2 needles. Push stitches to opposite end and join by swapping first and last stitches, being careful not to twist stitches.


Work in k1, p1 for 2 inches.

K two rows.

Heel Flap Work the heel flap back and forth on one needle as follows:

Row 1:(Sl 1 pw, K1) across

Row 2: Sl 1st st pw, then p across.

Work rows 1 and 2 for a total of 14 rows.

Heel Turn

Row 1: Sl 1, k10, ssk, k1, turn

Row 2: Sl 1, p3, p2tog, p1, turn.

Row 3: Sl 1, k4, ssk, k1, turn.

Row 4: Sl 1, p5, p2tog, p1, turn.

Row5: Sl 1, k6, ssk, k1, turn.

Row 6: Sl 1, p7, p2tog, p1, turn.

Row 7: Sl 1, k8, ssk, k1, turn.

Row 8: Sl 1, p9, p2tog, p1, turn.

K across 12 stitches. Continuing with same needle, pick up and k 8 sts along heel flap.

Go to the other end of this same needle and transfer 6 sts to needle 2.

Then continue on with this same needle, pm, and k across ½ of the instep sts (10 sts). Now you can drop this needle – there will be 24 sts on it.

With needle 2, k across the remaining instep sts (10), pm, pick up and k 8 sts along the heel flap. End by knitting the 6 heel sts. This needle will have 24 sts on it as well.

K one rnd.

Gusset decreases

Rnd 1: K to within 3 sts of marker, k2tog, k1, sl marker, k across to next marker, sl marker, k1 ssk, k remaining sts.

Rnd 2: K around.

Repeat these 2 rnds until you have 20 sts on each needle.

K 9 rnds even.

Toe decrease

Rnd 1: On each needle – k to within 3 sts of marker, k2tog, k1, sl marker, k1, ssk, k to end of needle.

Rnd 2: On each needle – k around.

Repeat these 2 rounds until 20 sts remain (10 on each needle)

K 1 more round.

Shift 5 sts off end of each needle onto other needle, this will make the toe lie flat. Remove markers.

Graft toe.

  1. I love knitting socks on 2 circs. I think this is the first one for baby socks I’ve seen. I can’t wait to try them!!

  2. I am so excited to try these out! I love knitting socks on 2 circs, and this seems like a nice easy pattern for baby socks. Thanks!

  3. If you shift 5 stitches from each needle to make the toe lay flat how do you graft off with your working yarn in the middle? Doesn’t seem possible or am I missing something.

  4. Deb, just thread the end on a needle and pull it through the stitches (without pulling too tightly) to the end and begin your grafting. I’d love to see pics of your completed socks!

  5. DUH! Thanks! Will send pics after I finish the second one. First one turned out great. Little different technique for picking up the stitches, had to stop a bit to figure that out. Like the outcome.

  6. Check out my blog, I just made your baby socks and they came out great. I will definitley be making more.
    Thanks for the pattern.
