Caps can be with ties, as well as just "stretch" on the top of the head, not tying under the chin. Most often they knit not only a hat, but also a scarf, as a set - of the same shade and with the same pattern.

For a newborn, you need to dial about 27-30 loops and knit 11-12 rows of garter stitch, then - reduce the loops for the toes. After - 10 rows knit purl loops. Continue to knit another 5-6 cm with a garter stitch, finish the work after knitting a number with purl loops, close them and sew the seam of the sole.

    To crochet socks, you need the same amount of yarn. Knitting should begin with the sole (you can independently make a suitable pattern before this). Then, from the back of the sole, the heel is knitted perpendicularly to the hem and beyond the side and the front of the sock in a circle, closing the knit on the opposite side of the heel.
