I am making toe socks (5 separate sections for the toes) for an eight-year-old girl who has a skin disease whereby she gets horrible blisters wherever skin touches skin. However, I can find only adult-size patterns for these socks. Does anyone have a child-size pattern for toe socks?

If you bought the yarn in a yarn store than one of the people that work there can adjust your pattern to the size you need in no time.

She is really to small for the smallest size with thin yarn and smaller sized needles?

Or is that no good? It is already very thin yarn and a very small needle?



I am going to look for a pattern for you though, it is nice of you to want to make the socks.
