Crocheted Baby Sweater

November 3, 2014 No comments yet

I love to hear from people who are crocheting my patterns. I especially love seeing photos and thought I’d share this cute newborn baby sweater that Freya crocheted. She used my Ana sweater design and crocheted her’s using the free newborn sweater pattern for the newborn baby size.

Should you want a bigger sized sweater, here is the original Ana sweater pattern which fits a child 2-3 years old.

The Ana sweater is an easy pattern and the only issue people have found is on the up and down stitch count on the pattern. I’m always here to help should anyone have questions as you crochet this baby sweater.

Pink Baby Sweater Jacket

March 6, 2010 4 comments

Here is my latest baby wearable I made for my granddaughter. I crocheted this cute pattern by Beverly called Cat’s Meow Toddler Jacket using Bernat Baby Jacquards. It is a fairly easy pattern but I did have some questions and I thought I’d clarify a few issues that I had as I worked the pattern.

First I wasn’t sure what the pattern was referring to when it read “Work over 26 patterns for 3 rows” after you finish the sleeves. I figured out it was talking about the vertically rows that this stitch pattern forms as you crochet the repeat pattern. I counted over 26 pattern rows which was about 10-1/2 inches from the sleeve edge and 4 inches from side edge in to neck.

Next I found that the border needs to start on the left side as you are looking at it which is the actual right hand side of sweater. I also found that it was easier for me to do the buttonholes on the right side of jacket by starting from the top edge and working down. Because I started at the top, I worked single crochet (sc) stitches in the first 8 stitches from the collar down to the first buttonhole. Then I worked the first buttonhole ch 2, skip 2 sts, and then worked sc in the next 8 stitches and repeated down to bottom of the right side.

I finished off the border by working a sc around in each st and 3 sc in corners the same as row 4 calls for in the pattern. I worked the collar’s first row by sc in each st and then skipping every 4th stitch but then I worked the remaining rows of the collar by sc in each stitch and 3 sc at collar points. I edged my sweater jacket with white contrasting yarn by working sc around the collar and cuffs and then I crocheted the ruffled edging around the rest of the sweater.

I hope my notes may help anyone else that may have questions working this pattern. It’s really an adorable finished baby jacket and I can’t wait to see my sweet granddaughter model it.

Pink Baby Hoodie

I just have to share my pink baby hoodie sweater that I crocheted for my grandaughter. I enjoyed working the pattern and was very happy with how the sweater turned out. I used a free leaflet pattern from Bernat to crochet this cute little hoodie. The pattern is also available at Bernat online here. If you’d like to see the projects made with this pattern, there is a project page on Ravelry featuring this pattern here.

So if you are looking for a cute and fairly easy baby hoodie pattern, you might want to check out this project.
