Children in Common (CIC) knitting group knits warm wool items for children in orphanages in Russia. Where it’s 45-50 degrees indoors, a warm pair of socks can make a big difference.

This pattern is written for toddler socks. The gauge is given, but gauge and size doesn’t matter very much for CIC. Any size will fit some child. Consider going up a needle size for larger socks.
