Using Worsted Weight Yarn of Your Choice
I used Red Heart in Soft White and Caron Simply Soft in Rose and Grey
US Size 5 or 3.75mm Double Pointed Needles

Using your main color of yarn cast on 21 stitches in any preferred cast on method you want. I used long tail cast on.

Divide those stitches on 3 of your needles.
Working in a 1×1 rib knit and purl all the way around for 4 rows.
Work on round of a knit row increasing one stitch per needle so that you end up with 24 stitches total. (Do not cut yarn you will be carrying up your yarn to the next stripe rows, there is no need for all that weaving in ends! )
Switch to your first stripe color and knit around for 3 rows.
Switch back to your main color and knit 4 rows.
Switch back to your stripe color and knit 3 rows.
Switch back to your main color and knit 4 rows.
Switch back to your stripe color and knit 3 rows.
Change to your main color and work 1 knit row.
Working in your 1×1 rib, work the row and decrease each needle one stitch so that you end up with 21 total stitches again.
The next 3 rows work in your 1×1 rib. Bind off.
I bound off in the normal way but you can bind off in any manner you like.
Weave in your ends.

My finished work was approximately 4 1/2 inches long and about 4 inches in diameter. This should fit a newborn baby from ankle to knee easily. Enjoy this pattern and feel free to sell anything you make from it but do not sell the pattern as it was intended to be free of charge.
