J's Little Socks for his Big Feet!

This is the first sock pattern I've ever just made, no pattern, just going with the flow. They turned out so well, I thought that I would share the pattern. These are for a 12-month old baby with big chubby feet! (But not like freekishly chubby, I swear!)

I used Cervinia Amalfi, because I'm cheap, but you could try any fingering weight yarn. Soft Apple and Powder Blue. (And as a side note, I have to say that Cervinia Yarns are nice. They're cheap, and so you'd be skeptical, but the several that I've tried knit up beautifully. They currently have a mohair blend up that I might have to try since I've gotten such good results.)
