Hen and Chicks for Baby Socks

This is my deviation of the standard hen and chicks pattern. I let the "eggs" hang loose to give me some flexablity when sewing them onto the elastic so they can stretch when being put on. I used to sew the tatting to the baby socks but a. the baby outgrew the socks quickly or b. the baby got the white socks really stained. So now the tatting can be slipped on and off of any pair of socks.

  1. That's a great idea to put the tatting directly onto some elastic. I've often wanted to tat something for baby socks but thought it was a lot of time spent tatting and very little time wearing before the baby would grow out of the socks. Now I know a better way so I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing!
