  2. Can you give the dimensions of these socks? I am finding that my socks are really big. They are more for a 2 yr old than a baby.

  3. Thanks so much for the pattern. A few days before you posted it I was actually trying out a bunch of patterns I had found for booties and you socks are just so much cuter. I am a beginning self taught crochet-er and have made one...It didn't quite turn out as good as yours did, but the pattern is so easy, I'm willing to try again.

  4. I'm making a pair, and my first one seems to be too big. Can you give me and idea of what the measurements would be on a finished sock? Thanks!!

    2. Do make sure to use a 3.5mm crochet hook and a light worsted weight yarn, that is a yarn weight of 3. Let me know how you go. :)

  7. Thank you for your tutorial, it's very usefull!
    I followed every step, but I think that I did any mistakes.... Because the tip is in out for the little thumb to the right foot, and the back (sole) too...
    For moment I did only one foot, but today I'm going to do the other foot....
    I hope that it is for the left foot...... or this poor baby will have two right feet! ahahaha
    Thank you so much!

  8. Hi..I started doing this.But have a doubt initially should start with11 chains or 12 chains..Because you said 11 chians->2sc in 2nd st which means 9th chain->1sc in next 8st which ends here but you have mentioned 2sc in last chain which i didnt get... I can follow your instruction only if initially starts with 12chains... Am i right??
