Finished Measurements

The crochet baby boots will fit most baby’s feet up to 0-6 months. 

Gauge

Crochet the sole of the bootie (rounds 1-4) and then measure the length. It should measure 4 inches. 

→ If your sole measures less than 4 inches, your tension is tighter than mine. Try using a larger size hook. 

→ If your sole measures more than 4 inches, your tension is looser than mine. Try a smaller size hook.
