infant foot size chart? Sizing footware correctly?

anyone have a good online resource for foot sizes? I know at least for boy shoes you go by inches, but girls are a bit different right? I am crocheting some booties and want to make sure I size them correctly. If I ever make a ton of them, having a size chart would save some time.

  • I found a visible size chart at that includes a ruler so that you know if it's printed out at the right scale. When I printed it out on my HP printer it was just the right size and matched my own ruler measurements just right. It even has premie sizing!

  • Here is a part of my Chart Size that I have in my book Seven Magic Stitches

    Foot Size Chart for babies:

    Preemies (1-2 lbs)- Foot Length 1" - 1 3/4"
    (2-3 lbs)- Foot Length 2" - 2 1/2"
    (3-5 lbs)- Foot Length 2 1/2" - 3"
    (5-7 lbs)- Foot Length 3" - 3 1/2"
    (7-9 lbs)-Foot Length 3 1/4" - 3 3/4" (most needed size for newborns)
    For older kids and adults, feet vary so much in size, you will need to measure each persons foot to be more accurate.
    3 -6 months: Foot Length 4" - 4.5"
    6 months - 1 year : 4.25" – 4.75"
    18 months - 2 years: Foot Length 4.5" - 5.5"
    2 years - 4 years : Foot Length 5.5" - 6"
