Does anyone have a newborn size bootie on hand? Can you measure the dimensions for me? I need cuff length and foot length. Also, if you don't mind, your needle size, gauge and stitch count around the cuff.

I'm knitting baby socks (without a pattern) and going by eye, the size looks too big, but I'm not sure. If you can help, I'd be soooo grateful! :)

Sorry, Silver, I don't have one by hand. What you could do, though, is pick up some newborn booties at the store and measure. Wish I could be of more help! :??

Eh, I went ahead and knitted them. I think they're close enough to newborn size. Maybe a tad big, but close enough. ;)

Too big is ALWAYS better than too small! :roflhard:

Those kids have an amazing ability to GROW, you know :shock:

Happy Knitting :XX: :XX:

All babies are different, ya know! My oldest had enormous feet as a babe, I couldn't find a bootie that would fit him. And the girls? Teeny tiny little feet that couldn't keep a bootie on!
