You need approx. 15g or 65m of fingering weight yarn to knit a pair of #welcomebabysocks.
This pattern is written for knitting with DPNs cuff down with a heel flap and gusset. Cuff and leg are knit in rib to provide a well fitting sock that actually stays on the baby’s leg. It will fit a baby from newborn up to three months.
I wrote this pattern for the pro-life organization in Germany called Aktion Lebensrecht für Alle e.V. (translated: A right to live for everyone.) They gift pregnant women in need a pair of #welcombabysocks along with financial help to show their support and to welcoming the baby while the father or grandparents often aren‘t interested.
