Charted instructions for working the front and back relief puff stitch pattern

This textured stitch pattern is a 2 row repeat and easily committed to memory. The finished stitch gives the garment positive ease across the width, useful for extra growing room.

I used Yeoman Yarns Cashmilon, which worked up well and was easy to work with. It gives a baby soft finish. You could substitute the yarn for another brand of fingering(4ply) just remember to check your gauge to achieve the correct finished size

Crew neck long sleeved - a traditional sweater worked bottom-up and in-the round to armholes. Three button back neck fastening for ease to slip over babies head. Sleeves are worked directly onto the armhole edge to the wrist. The only seams to be joined are the shoulder seams
V neck sleeveless vest - a useful addition to babies wardrobe to add extra warmth, worked bottom-up and in-the round to armholes. No fastening option is required as the V neck shaping is roomy enough to just slip over babies head. Simple armhole edging is worked directly onto the armhole edge. The only seams to be joined are the shoulder seams
V neck long sleeved cardigan - a traditional front fastening cardigan worked in the flat and in one piece to armholes.
Sleeves are worked directly onto the armhole edge to the wrist. The only seams to be joined are the shoulder seams

I have worked all three designs and I have made all three designs interchangeable on attributes. Other options that could be used are:-

crew neck vest - work sleeveless armhole edging instead of long sleeves on the crew neck sweater
V neck long sleeved sweater - work long sleeves instead of sleeveless armhole edging on the V neck vest
front fastening waistcoat work sleeveless armhole edging instead of long sleeves on the V neck cardigan.

I self taught myself to crochet when I was in my late teens and discovered how amazing and versatile crochet work can be.

I love to experiment and create unique designs and I am currently working on baby wear.

Hand made items for babies are so special, either as a gift or for your own children.
