  8. Okay now the only question I have is how would you make it for a man or child? How many then would I have to chain?

     

     

    If possible measure the foot for width from ankle around the foot to the other side of ankle. Now crochet a chain that length.

     

    For length measure the foot from heel to toes and then crochet rows until you get that measurement.

     

    For the men's I have made I usually start with between 38-41.

    And for children I usually start with between 15-25 depending on age.

     

    Hope this helps.
