With less than 40 yards of sock yarn, and a few spare hours, you can knit these sweet little socks for 18″ dolls.  

Knitting Loom: KB Sock Loom 2

Yarn: Approximately 35 yds of a light fingering weight yarn.  Footsie (in Punky), by Knit Fit Knitting, was used for this project.

Notions: knitting tool, scissors, yarn needle, 2 double point knitting needles (size 2)

Gauge: 6 stitches and 10 rows = 1″

 

Special Techniques:

w&t:  Wrap and Turn

At the peg indicated in the pattern, using the knitting tool, lift the stitch(es) already in place up off of the peg and hold it(them) temporarily.  Pass the working yarn behind the peg and then across the front of the peg.  Place the held stitch(es) back on the peg, above the wrap that was just created. Wrap and turn is now complete.
