Bells On My Toes Holiday Beaded Mini Sock
HeartStrings knitting pattern #A93
Bells On My Toes is a festive holiday miniature sock for you to knit with beads and a bell. Simple beading techniques make this mini sock pattern quick to knit, and the results look impressive.
Use for holiday tree trimming, as a sachet filled with herbal mixtures or potpourri, as a gift box decoration, etc. This is a good starter project if you've been wanting to try knitting with beads. I bet you won't be able to make just one!
Approximately 4 inches long overall. 20 yards fingering weight yarn, size 8/0 seed beads, optional jingle bell. Size US 2 / 2.75 mm needles suggested.

All these colorfully beaded Mini Socks were knitted by Nancy. Aren't they adorable?
'Tis Almost the Season
Jean Moss featured "Bells On My Toes Mini Holiday Sock" as one of top five knitted Christmas gifts in her Q&A column in the December 2008 issue of UK magazine Knitting. Not having a high resolution photo for Jean, and not even having a sample model to photograph (since these make such great little gifts to give away), I quickly made one (takes hardly any time, yeah!), and voila I have a new photo to share. Enjoy!
