Basic Toe-Up Kids Socks

Looking for a good beginner sock knitting pattern?


You’ve just found it!


The Basic Toe-Up Kids Socks are a simple vanilla sock pattern that fits 6 sizes from Babies – Teens. It features a simple 1x1 ribbed cuff, stockinette body, short row heel, and wedge toe. Each section of the pattern also includes links to online tutorials that walk you through the how’s and why’s of creating the socks.


These tutorials (and this pattern) make up the free Beginner Toe-Up Sock Knitting Class that was offered on in January 2021. With everything covered in the approximately 2 hours of free video lessons, even experienced sock knitters might find a new trick to add to their repertoire.

    Pattern includes links to relevent tutorials. Tutorials are also posted to the the YumiYarns Tutorials page.


    The needle size listed is the needle size I regularly use, but I am a very loose knitter so you may need to go up 1-2 needle sizes to get a fabric that you like. Most knitters do well with US size 2 (2.75 mm) & if you are a tight or newer knitter you may want to try a US size 3 (3.25 mm). If you know your standard needle size for sock knitting, use that instead of what I have listed (the size that gives you gauge).


    Make sure that your begining of round marker is different from your other markers so you can tell the difference. Locking markers are recommended .


    This pattern has been test knit and Tech edited.
