About Grow

Socks are one of Hanna Lisa’s all-time favorite things to knit, and baby (or kid) socks are so quick to whip up - and extremely cute to boot - that they’re her favorite gift knit for a new arrival on this earth.

The Grow socks come in three variations - a stockinette version perfect for playing with color, a fun lace version and a super cozy 2x2 ribbing version. They’re perfect for a mini-skein set or for using up odds and ends of fingering weight yarns from your stash! All variations are started at the toe and feature a German Short-Row heel (magic!) so that you can make them fit exactly to your little one’s feet.
