Jenn G said...

is this pattern for what size booties? I need it for the 0-6 months...

Shanny said...

Jenn,

This is a pattern. It really depends on how tight you crochet. When you get to the end of round 3, measure your sole size.
I made these with an I hook and they came out to be the 0-6 months size.

Small – 3.5 inch sole – 0-6 months
Medium – 4 inch sole – 6-9 months
Large – 4.5 inch sole – 9-12 months

Let me know if you need help with this. I am happy to re-test the pattern to get more accurate sizing info. to help you out.

I used a G hook to obtain the 0-6 months size. I have a question and I hope you are quick to answer. Rnd 3 instructs to fasten off but rnd 4 doesn't say to change color, do I change at rnd 4? Thank you!

Shanny said...

Sorry for the late response @Leta Carr. Yes, you do change color at that round. I will correct the pattern. Thank you so much!
