And now introducing the fanciest, most outrageous, most COMPLICAT–oh wait, I mean the simplest, most classic, most straight forward baby crochet pattern there ever was! Perfect for those who just want a straight up baby sweater, no frills, no fuss, just classic, cool, and wearable. For crochet! Basics are something that I think is totally lacking in the baby crochet world. Make it for a boy, make it for a girl, make it for those parents who won’t tell you what the sex of their baby is. Dress it up, dress it down–it’s a perfect go-to… quick to crochet, with no seaming except for the armholes–set in to make it fit perfectly and look effortlessly stylish. (Babies need that whole effortless thing, they haven’t quite learned what makes things look good, y’know?) If you’re looking for a baby crochet pattern for beginners, or if you’re just looking for a crochet staple, this pattern is for you.
Like I said, this sweater is great for beginners. The only stitches you need to know are single and half double crochet, slip stitching and how to decrease. This sweater is kept mostly seamless using the crocheted tube technique I wrote a tutorial for, so you shouldn’t have any hang ups there, and the ribbing is done by simply crocheting in the back loop of stitches. . The only reason the sleeves need to be sewn in place is because set in sleeves get elongated and wonky when they’re done seamlessly, especially with crochet. Just in case you were wondering.
I am pleased as a peach with this sweater, I wouldn’t mind having one myself.
I’m starting to feel much more on track with everything, and I’m pretty excited about things to come. I’m starting to get into a good swing with designing and blogging, and while I’m sure the holiday are gonna throw me for a loop, so far I’ve been keeping really good momentum. Life is a little stressful, for sure, but I’m trying to keep a positive outlook and keep ploughing ahead. Hope you all are having a lovely week, and I’ll see you tomorrow with some hot resource action.
