As a mom of 2 boys, I've noticed over the years that most crocheted sweaters are designed for girls only. I wanted to design something that would really work for both boys and girls, and even when you don't know which kind of baby you're crafting for!
The Sven Sweater is crocheted top down, and each piece is joined as you go, so there's no seaming. The unique color pattern design gives this pattern an intermediate rating, and the PDF includes a link to a tutorial video which fully explains and demonstrates the technique.
Change up the colors, the buttons, the hood - this sweater lends itself to endless personalization, and is one you can make again and again.

Crafter, blogger, designer at www.mooglyblog.com, I've been crocheting for over 10 years and started designing my own stuff as soon as I mastered the sc! I also dabble in some other crafty things, but crochet is my first love.
