Crochet Baby Bootie Measurements Chart

Gingerbread Baby Booties from Sweet Baby CrochetHere are the Crochet Baby Bootie Measurements from the age of newborn up to 1 year old.

Usually with a baby bootie pattern, the first 3-4 rounds complete the sole and this is the part of the bootie that you want to match with the measurements below and of the baby foot.

This chart is a general guide, we all know that every baby is not exactly the same and may slightly differ in their foot length at any age.

A Few Tips on Materials to Crochet Baby Booties

Yarn: My favorite yarn for booties is any bamboo yarn or any soft yarn.

Stitch Markers: I will use a stitch marker or a safety pin to mark the first stitch of each round so I don’t get lost and know where to join at the end of each round.

I hope this helps you out and have fun making all of your Crochet Baby Booties.

All the best,

    the vintage baby booties all say to make the bottom fasten off then do the top half. when I stitch them together they never line up right. what am i doing wrong or how do i make those booties in one peice

      Hi Bridget,

      I always go for bootie patterns that don’t require fastening off until the bootie is completed the whole way and I’m wary of some vintage patterns because I’ve rarely had much luck with them ending up looking any good. I end up making up my own pattern somehow. 🙂 Also with the vintage patterns I’ve found too many with missing steps or terms that are out-dated which makes it difficult to understand and therefore end up with a strange-looking bootie.

      The first thing I would check with your work is: have you crocheted the same amount of stitches on the top part of the bootie (on the 1st round where you will be joining to the bottom part) to match with the same amount of stitches for the bottom of the bootie? If you have the same amount of stitches on the bottom and top parts of the bootie then they should marry up perfectly when you stitch them together.

      Another suggestion (if you want to avoid the whole stitching parts together), without me seeing your bootie pattern, is you could try to skip the fastening off step after you’ve made the bottom of the bootie and continue onto the top part of the vintage pattern until the bootie is entirely completed and then fasten off.

      If you’d like me to have a look at the pattern so we can nut this one out together even further then feel free to email it to me through the contact form.

      All the best,

    this is so helpful! I’ve been thinking of trying to make my own patterns..but I don’t have a baby to try them out on lol

    • Paula says:

      I know what you mean, Sarah! That is why I bought a baby dolly so I could place my new baby bootie designs on. 🙂

    Hello. I want to make my niece your tie up baby booties. In the tutorial you mention that the one you’re making was for 3-6 months old. Based on your chart, I’ll need an 8 cm chain. Does that mean I’ll have to chain 8 times?

    Sorry if I sound stupid, but this will actually be the second time I’ll be knitting…

    • Paula says:

      Hello Penelope, you need to make 8 chain stitches.
