I printed off this chart http://home.earthlink.net/~bruxknits/pats/BasicSockChart.pdf

but I was wondering it says to work the foot till 1.5 inches less desired length for adults, but how far do you work for kids socks?

All my patterns say work from the turned heel/gusset until the length is 1-1/2 inches from the end of the toes, i.e., if you need an 8 inch foot length, you'd work the pattern until the foot from the heel is 6-1/2 inches. I think it would be the same for kids.
