Brynnleigh's Super Simple Socks

I recently got a whole bunch of balls of sock yarn for babies (thanks Grandma) and my 2 year old cousin Brynnleigh decided she really wanted this blue pair and a pink pair, so that's been my weekend so far. I wasn't really finding a pattern for toe-up toddler socks that I liked so I basically just winged it and here we go. Keep in mind this is my first knitting pattern so please don't hesitate to tell me if there's anything wrong. Here we go!

BO loosely (very loosely; I did it too tight the first time and then I had to take it apart and redo it which is a pain in the ass)

Viola! I hope you enjoy it. :)
