Blythe Socks!

I looked everywhere for a knit sock pattern for my new Bythe doll, Simone. It had to be on US1 needles (like a real human sock) and had to have real sock anatomy (like a real human sock), but there was none to be found.

So I did it myself. Want the pattern?

You bet!

 (Simone's are kind of crazy-looking because I used striping sock yarn 
that's way too random for teeny socks.)
