Special Terms and NOTES Please read BEFORE commencing Pattern

These are ONLY EASY IF you know how to FPHDC = Front post half double crochet
BPHDC = Back Post Half Double Crochet
Work partial DC by: yarn over, insert in next st yarn over, draw loop through stitch and then yarn over and draw through 2 lops on hook, leaving last loop on stitch while working next stitch, do this for number of stated times. Then Yarn over and pull through ALL stitches on hook. SEE PICTURE AT BOttom of Post
I used Aran weight (Cygnet Yarn)
and a 3.50mm hook for newborn size. Honestly these are made in no time and great for using up extra left over yarn. The little cuffed ankle part makes sure they stay snuggly on little ones feet.
