Baby Socks or Booties

Free Pattern for the Long Loom

Isela shared this free pattern for baby booties on her blog. Unlike the other sock patterns on this page, it uses the pink Knifty Knitter long loom (the shortest loom in the set). A loom Clip is used to shorten the loom to a smaller size. This pattern has knitting abbreviations, so a beginner may find it frustrating. The pattern is a good example of how to utilize a long loom to make socks.


Skill Level: Intermediate

You will need:

*9 inch Knifty Knitter long loom (usually pink)

*2 skeins of medium weight yarn

*Knifty Knitter Loom Clip

How to Knit the Basic Sock on the Small Round Loom

A Beginner Pattern by Yours Truly

This is how to knit a basic adult sock on the blue Knifty Knitter loom.

You will need:

*Blue Knifty Knitter Round Loom

*Knifty Knitter Hook

*Yarn Needle

*2 Skeins of very stretchy yarn (acrylic works well)

Note: Knit using 2 strands of yarn as 1.

1. Begin by making a cast on drawstring. This will be the toe of the sock and is used to cinch the toe closed. Detailed instructions on the drawstring are here. It is only difficult the first time you make one, after that you will be very glad you learned to do this. It comes in handy for so many Knifty Knitter projects.

2. E-wrap the loom and knit off until the knit measures at least 15 inches. This will make ankle high socks. You may want it longer for tube socks.

3. Remove the sock from the loom beginning at the peg furthest from the working yarn. Remove two loops. Feed the loop on the farthest peg through the next loop using a crochet hook. Continue doing this until you have reached the working yarn.

4. Turn the knit in at the top of the sock and whip stitch it into place. This forms the double thick edge at the top of the sock, as if you were making the cuff of pants or the brim of a hat. The double thickness will help hold the sock in place.

Do You Like Socks Knitted at Home ?

As a girl, I always got hand knitted socks from my grandmother for Christmas. How do you feel about hand-knitted socks? Are they better? Or would you prefer socks from a store?

      I love hand knitted socks, however...I mainly wear store bought socks and find that after 5 to 6 wears, I sometimes get holes in the heels. I feel less bad about disposing of store bought socks. If they were hand made, I just couldn't do that.

    • anonymous 2 years ago

      yes

      Amazing!!!!!!

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      oh yes do them on circs but thought loom would be quicker

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      I prefer to hand-knitted socks. I just wish I had the pattern booklet that was supposed to come with the set of 4 round looms I bought recently.

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      me encantan!

    • anonymous 3 years ago

      I've been looking for some snazzy sock patterns for a while. I'm so excited to get started. Christmas gifts for the family :)

    • Caroljeanb 3 years ago

    • love2loom 3 years ago

    • Kimberly Schimmel, MLS 3 years ago from Greensboro, NC

      Hand-knit socks last longer and can be made in whatever weight I like, from laceweight to bulky.

    • dolphins007 3 years ago

      yes

        I'm picky about the stretch in my socks, but do buy them store bought. I'm looking into making SLIPPER SOCKS for around the house. (I received a hand me down pair, and they had a few holes, every time I wear them new holes crop up:( So I'm thinking its best if I made my own then to keep TRYING to repair them). After watching videos all day to learn I realized I don't own the right one.

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        I've never wore them but want to make them and make slippers

      • MissionBoundCre 4 years ago

        A bit difficult.. For my shoes I like store bought. To hang out at home.. Knitted. I am choosing what I use most.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        Es fabuloso estos tejidos, pero gustaria conseguir un libro que pueda hacer el tejido paso a paso

      Sock Instructions on You Tube - Basic Sock Instructions when Loom Knitting

      This video doesn't use the original brand of Knifty Knitter looms, but it gives you the basic idea of how a sock is made on a round loom. Pam does a very good job of explaining how to make the heel section of the sock. She goes through it slowly making it easy to knit along with her.

      How to Knit a Sock on a Round Loom

      Baby Bootie Pattern for the Knifty Knitter Flower Loom

      I'm a retailer of these Knifty Knitter looms for Provo Craft. They published this baby bootie pattern that utilizes either the flower loom, or the blue round loom. You can view the pattern in it's printed version: Knifty Knitter Baby Booties, or watch it here in this video produced by Caring Caps, Inc. I would use the flower loom for infant booties and the blue round loom for older babies. If you have difficulty with the pegs on the flower loom coming out, which they are designed to do, you can simply wrap more loosely, or glue the pegs in place. If you opt to glue the pegs, the loom no longer works as well for making flowers.

          This looks like something I could do! I crochet, but this tool looks like an easy way to get "knitted items" without knitting!

          DreamsBloom 5 years ago

          In the poll I voted I Knifty Knit all the time, because there wasn't another option such as "use occasionally." I love using knitting looms, including the Kniffty Knitters...they are so easy to use...but I don't use them that often. I have a large stash of yarn waiting to be used with them though and I really should use one of these sock patterns because in cold weather I am wearing warm socks, booties, slippers, etc. all the time.

          Are any of these socks trim enough to wear with shoes, or are they all lounging socks?

          anonymous 4 years ago

          I've made lots of sock with my small and next size up round looms. Now I'm getting ready to do socks. I've been wondering, what else can be made with the round ones.

          @victoriuh: Mostly lounging socks, but it is possible to make them less bulky by using the no wrap stitch, rather than the e wrap.

          Hello

          Please explain what you mean 3. Remove the sock from the loom beginning at the peg furthest from the working yarn. Remove two loops. Feed the loop on the farthest peg through the next loop using a crochet hook. Continue doing this until you have reached the working yarn.

          Q: Would this be the last peg??

          Allison Jayne 4 weeks ago

          I have just finished my first pair of socks on the smallest loom. They fit well but due to using the e wrap cast on, they are very loose and are curling over. I have only been loom knitting for about 6 weeks. Does anyone have any ideas how I can have them not to curl at the tops?

          Thank you in advance.
