A very simple, toe-up, short row, magic loop, one at a time, sock. For toddlers.

An ideal ‘first sock’ make and fast enough to knit a couple of pairs for the Ravelympics! The heel is made with ‘half’ a short-row heel for a slimmer fit. Initially an accident, I kept it as it worked so well.

UPDATE: for the middle size of sock, cast on 50 stitches -my multiplication skills let me down there! Thanks crazydee for catching that!

UPDATE: Try substituting the short row heel in the pattern for the one demonstrated here:

as it is MUCH EASIER:) Thanks teresaschmidt for the suggestion. Always happy to find an easier way to do things!

UPDATE: For a tidier cast of which still has stretch, I’ve experimented with using the Jeny’s super stretchy method on every other stitch, which so far has worked well!
