Who doesn't like warm, hand-knitted socks! I have been knitting socks for my family, and thought
I would share the easy and fast pattern I have come up with!

Sized for 2-3 yr old.......................................................................sized for 4-6 yr old
My Grandkid's slipper spocks

These socks were knitted for my grand-daughters, who liketo run around sock-footed
These will fit kids from 2 yrs to 5 yrs, approximately.
I am not an expert knitter, or an expert knitting pattern writer.
Just wanted to put this very easy pattern out for others!
