The pattern used in Petite Feet follow the basic sock pattern in from Ann Budd’s The Knitter’s Handy
Book of Patterns (Interweave, 2002) and is a choose-your-own-ending
formula. Determine the finished size of your sock and the gauge (based
on your yarn and needles); then follow the instructions using the
correct numbers from each table. You can use the basic pattern here to
work a plain sock with a ribbed cuff or integrate the directions with
the five “recipe” patterns given here. Each recipe lists the materials
needed for that sock design, then directs you how to work the sock by referring back to the basic pattern.
Back to School by Norah Gaughan, a unique
cotton pullover sized from small child to extra-large adult, features a
flattering asymmetrical textural pattern worked in a combination of

The lime green color of the super simple School-Girl Pullover by Ann
Budd-plus the rolled edges and cropped length-give it a fresh look, just right
for the schoolgirl with a modern sense of style. Whatever color you choose to
knit this sweater in, it's sure to delight your school girl.
The yoke of Stop-Traffic Circles by Kristin Nicholas is decorated with
cheerful concentric circles. Simple chain-stitch embroidery around the
knitted-in circle motifs gives them added dimension and a smooth outline. The
body of the sweater is worked in knit-and-purl ladder-stitch patterns
interspersed with simple cable panels. The finished sweater is machine-washed
it gently to even out any irregularities in the embroidery and to give the
sweater a soft, semifelted surface.
The Shadowy Vest by Marilyn Murphy is made in a clever, easy colorwork
pattern. The yarn combination is what makes the magic; the combination of a
solid and a multicolored yarn and strategically placed knits and purls makes
the shadow strip pattern. Sized for a 2 year old to a 10 year old, you'll want
to make one for each of your special little people.
