I had dabbled in knitting some baby sweaters, but I was much faster at crocheting. I went searching for cute crocheted baby sweaters, but I couldn't find anything I liked that used worsted weight yarn. I like this weight because it is easy to use, easy to find, and projects work up pretty quickly. I decided to go with the Kimono Wrap style because it is just super cute and comfy. It allows a little extra room for growth because it ties closed instead of buttons.
The pattern is full of photos and features a size chart at the beginning with sleeve lengths, sleeve circumferences, shoulder widths, and total length from neck to bottom. The Kimono Wrap can be made sleeveless, short sleeved, 3/4 sleeved or full sleeved. The written directions only give specific instruction for the full sleeves, but it is easily customizable. It can also be made as a shrug for baby instead of a full sweater if you reduce the length from neck to bottom.
I prefer that these are not sold online as I do make them myself to sell. If you decide to purchase this pattern, you are agreeing to those terms. Thank you in advance for your respect of my wishes. Please contact me with any questions.
1"= 3.25sts (13sts in 4")
1"= 2hdc rows (Row gauge is only important for yardage. I crochet loosely, so if your rows aren't as tall as mine, you may use more yarn than I did. )
I am 23 years old, a wife and a first-time mom to a very sweet little boy. I love to knit and crochet, and I get a thrill out of designing my own patterns. I enjoy reading and studying new things, and I love the feel of fiber between my fingers!
