If these were adult-sized socks I would have called them Après-Ski, since they look to me like something you ought to be wearing in the Alps or the Olympic Village or something. But since babies can't ski yet, they're Avant-Ski. Ta-da!

Avant-Ski is a simple stranded design for your little ski-bunny-in-training. The socks are knit in the round from the top down with an eye-of-partridge heel. The toe is grafted closed. Charted instructions are provided for the main colorwork section.
Price: This pattern is temporarily available for FREE.
Yarn: You will need approximately 50 yards each of two contrasting sock yarns for best results. I recommend that at least one of the yarns be a solid color to make the pattern pop.
