Is there any place on the Internet where we can find ball-of-foot and overall length measurements for babies' feet? (Approximate, of course.)

I've been knitting "sockies" to go with soakers lately, but have no idea if both items will get to be worn at the same time!

The average newborn today weighs 7 pounds, 12 ounches, and 20 inches long. Its always better to make the clothes a little bigger because to tight of clothes can easily overheat your baby, and having a little bigger clothes can let your baby grow into them.

Here is the average measurments for a newborn baby. This is just the average, every baby is different:

Foot: 3 inches long, about 1 inch wide
Width of Chest: 6-8 inches
Lenght of Arm: 5 inches
Lenght of Leg: 6 inches

This one is from Bev's Cottage. It's a really long page with measurements for lots of things.

Great resource.

somewhere on my blog (toward the beginning, I think) I wrote out a pattern for the simplest baby bootie pattern ever. It is knit in garter stitch. The advantage of a garter stitch bootie is how much it stretches. The pattern listed will fit a foot from 3 inches long to about 6 inches long. It is the only bootie pattern I now use since I learned how long the babe can wear it. It is based on that very popular slipper pattern that everyone knows and has probably knit and worn. I vary what is above the ankle eyelet row and have used the same pattern to make cowboy boots, majorette boots, mary janes, and a wide variety of stitch designs.

I'll try to locate it when I have more time and post the pattern or if you find it first, then post it for me.

Is this the pattern Fran?

THE ABSOLUTELY EASIEST BOOTIE PATTERN YOU CAN FIND. I mass produced these when I adopted my three girls. They still wear them as slippers and request them every year, but they are a little larger now. This makes a bootie that is 3 1/2 inches long without stretching and will fit any newborn baby. It will stretch until foot is about 6 1/2 inches long so it can be worn for a long time.

Cast on 5 to 8 inches of stitches (cuff length will vary from 1/2 to 2 inches depending on cast on) work in garter stitch until unstretched length of bootie is 2 inches, Bind off stitches at beginning of next 2 rows leaving 4 inches of stitches in center. Continue garter stitch until unstretched length is 3 1/2 inches, k2 tog across next row, knit 1 row even, k 2 tog across next row, thread yarn through stitches and tie off tightly, sew seam up to edge of cuff and finish off. Gather center back 1/3 of stitches and tie off. Sew cast on edges together using your favorite seam. I use what I call the "baseball" stitch because it was once used on those older leather baseballs. Pass yarn or narrow ribbon under garter "bumps" at level of cuff and use to tie on booties. Turn cuff down. Directions for the baseball stitch follow.
