Crocheted Baby Vest and Hat Set

Posted on April 7, 2014

Using my Ana sweater vest pattern, I crocheted this baby vest using a sport weight yarn vintage yarn called Von-Cott in baby blue. I followed the exact pattern directions using 2 skeins or 3.5 ounces of the sport weight yarn. Finished vest size should fit a 6-12 month baby with measurements 9-1/2 inches wide by 12 inches long.

Here is a closeup of the baby sweater vest.

I also crocheted a ribbed band hat using the vintage Von-Cott yarn. I followed the child’s size crocheted ribbed hat pattern. I needed to make the hat just a bit larger as I was using the sport weight yarn and a G (4 mm) hook. So I followed the child’s pattern details through round 5. For round 6, I worked 2 increases between 4 Hdc’s stitches for a total of 72 stitches in round. Then round 7, I worked 2 increases between 5 Hdc’s stitches and worked Hdc’s even on 84 stitches for rounds 8-12. I then finished the hat with 4 rounds of the ribbing as explained in the original pattern directions.

Finished hat size is 7 inches long by 17-1/2 inches cir.
