- 6-8 months - 11 cm
- 8-10 months - 12 cm
- 10-12 months - 13 cm

The size of loops depends on the number of loops that you need to dial. The thickness of the yarn also affects the number of loops to be dialed. The thicker it is, the less loops you need. In addition, the size may vary depending on the density of knitting (how tight you will be tightening the loop). Knitting loops are best not to tighten too much. Otherwise, it will be difficult for you to knit.

Knitting bootees for beginners

For the manufacture of such bootees you need 100% acrylic and needles No. 3. Knitting is carried out in 2 threads. Scheme knitting bootees knitting needles is simple.
- First you need to tie the booties cuff. Type 37 loops on the needles. Distribute the collected loops to 4 needles (9 loops each). After knitting two extreme loops together, join the knitting into a circle. Knit 12 circular rows with a 1x1 rubber band.
- For lacing or ribbon, tie a row of holes: * 2 loops face together, 1 nakid *, repeat the pattern from * to *.
- Then knit 2 circular rows with the front satin stitch. The loops should be distributed as follows: 11 loops on one spoke, 7 - on the second, 11 - on the third, 7 - on the fourth.
- Now you need to tie the booties toe. To do this, knit 11 loops with the third knitting needle knitting needles in reverse rows. Knit 18 rows this way. Do not use the remaining loops.
- Go to knitting the side of the product. From each edge loop, located on the sides of the toe, dial 1 loop. Put into work temporarily not involved loops. Knit a garter stitch 10 rows.
- The next step is to knit the sole of the booties. It is necessary to knit the front of the satin, connecting with the sides. To do this, knit only 11 middle loops, and knit the last of 11 loops at the end of each row together with the side loop. Carry out knitting according to this pattern, until the side needles run out of loops. Transfer all the loops to one needle. This should be done as follows: 1st loop from 1st needle, 1st loop from 2nd needle, 2nd loop from 1st needle, 2nd loop from 2nd needle, etc. in order. Thus translate 11 loops from the 1st spoke and 11 from the 2nd. Close all loops by tying 3 loops at once: closing loop, loop from the 1st needle, loop from the 2nd needle. Stretch the tip of the yarn in the last loop and tighten. Put the tip inside the booties and fasten.
- Trim booties can make crocheted with a small cord or ribbon. The lace must be threaded into the previously connected holes, and then tie it with a beautiful bow.
