Crochet Baby Boy Sweater Pattern, Bentley Sweater

When I designed my first crochet baby sweater for girls, the Evelyn sweater, a lot of people commented that they wished I had designed one for boys. So here it is, my very first crochet baby boy sweater pattern!

The Designing Process

I wanted to combine different textures for this sweater. I was so skeptical of the diamond stitch when I made a gauge swatch. I thought it would be too much for a tiny baby sweater but once I made my first sample, I fell in love with it.

 

The crunch stitch used on this sweater is a modification of the regular crunch stitch that will make your work grow quicker and give it more texture. I replaced the half double crochet with double crochet stitches and avoided working into the slip stitches which can be a pain to stick your hook into.

 

If you have been following my designs, you must have already noticed that I love quick projects. To make this sweater work up fast, I have kept the back of the sweater plain and simple.

 

The back is worked in herringbone half double crochet stitches which look really neat compared to a regular half double crochet. The stitches seem to slant and stack closely together.

 

The sweater has been worked sideways to give that vertical lines effect to this sweater. Adding the shawl collar just added a little more pizzazz to an already cute design, if I may say so myself, lol!

    I’m slowly working on this sweater as I am not an experienced crocheter yet and I don’t want to overwhelm myself since the pattern is the hardest I’ve tried. I do want to say it’s totally worth buying the pattern, as what I’ve completed so far is coming out really good. I’m loving the challenge. Thank you so much for this gorgeous pattern!

    Any chance of where I could find this or something similar in men’s sizes? I would LOVE to crochet this for my 19!year old son who was in major motorcycle accident. He LOVES this sweater and wants me to make him one. Thank you for your time 🙂

      Hi Cassandra, I am sorry to hear about your son’s accident and hope that he recovers quickly. I will be coming up with bigger sizes by next Fall. I will have a lot of testing before I can publish it.

      Hi Lois, I am sorry since I haven’t tested the bigger sizes, it is hard to give you any concrete suggestions. Maybe try using a thicker yarn?

    Can’t wait to make this for next year’s holiday pictures! Expecting my first grandson this time next month but with so many, I’ve got plan ahead. Love this for the boy and can’t wait for your adult size pattern to come out! Beautiful work

      Hi Marie, you work a slip stitch in the very first stitch of the row after you make a turning chain.
