I made these in pink a couple of  years back, and really have enjoyed wearing them.

    Oh! I’m glad I found you. I want to make these cute socks for Valentine’s Day for my granddaughter. She is six-years-old, and she wears a size 11 children’s shoe size. I’m not great at converting patterns. Do you think if I use a size 1 needle, that these might be small enough to fit her? Could I cast on a smaller amount and make the heart pattern fit? I’ve looked everywhere for a little girl’s pattern like this, and I can’t find one.

    What do you think?
    Thanks!

    Debbie, if you use the small needle and sock weight yarn, they should come out OK. The pattern is based on a 16 stitch repeat, and b/c I have small feet, I made mine by subtracting 16 stitches, which produced 3 hearts instead of 4. The pattern does require concentration till you get beyond the hearts and diamonds.
    Have fun! Please visit often.
