Crocheted Baby Cardigan

Hi folks, it’s that time again (“FINALLY”, did I hear you say?)

It’s been a busy semester at school. That doesn’t mean I’ve not been finishing (crocheted or knitted) projects, just that I haven’t gotten around to posting them quite yet. I’ve been working on a few things for the past few months, and here is the first one I am posting: a lovely, crocheted baby cardigan!

I crocheted this lovely gem for one of my good friend’s baby shower. I aimed for a 6-12 month size, somewhere in there, in hopes that it will be fall or winter for when this little cutie will be able to wear it. You never REALLY know with baby clothes. I found the pattern here for purchase, from monpetitviolon‘s etsy shop.

The design worked up wonderfully, and the sizes, in my opinion, are accurate (i.e. the 6 month-ish size fit my nephew when he was 4 months old, but fitting into 6 month clothing.)

I made it in a tan colour, because we didn’t know what sex the baby was going to be. Turns out it’s a girl and she is going to look lovely in this sweater! I can’t wait until she’s old enough to give it a try 😀

Oh, and by the way, here are some pictures for you.

I hope you enjoy! I really love the great detail in the body and the sleeves. It’s a great texture but without being too much.
