IronBird

The original Eutaw Street socks were named after the street that’s home to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, so it only made sense to name these baby socks after baby (Oriole) birds! The Aberdeen IronBirds are the Orioles single A affiliate, owned by local hero Cal Ripken Jr.

Knee high, as baseball socks should be, these socks feature offset ribbing at the cuff and garter stitch stirrups that run the length of the leg and travel down the foot. Worked from the cuff down, this is a great pattern for team colors, self-striping yarn, or using up leftovers.
