Up until recently I hadn’t yet ventured into crocheting any type of real clothing. I stuck mainly to scarves, bags, hats, Amigurumi animals, and now diaper covers. I don’t know when I will be ambitious and courageous enough to crochet a sweater for myself, but it seems that baby sweaters are the perfect way to start. For one thing, they are small so you don’t spend a million hours on something to find out that it is is downright terrible. And for another, baby doesn’t really care if it’s not perfect. The baby itself actually makes something so-so, into something really cute!
I made this sweater from a free pattern I found online. It’s for a newborn size and I think it turned out well. I have a stash of yarn that I feel obligated to use up before I buy new yarn (unless I have a project that calls for yarn that I don’t currently have) so this sweater isn’t made out of the softest stuff in the world, but I liked the color. And I love the button!
