Crochet Baby Boy Sweater Pattern, Bentley Sweater

Share the Love!

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 the effect of that vertical line 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!

Where is the pattern

This is a beautiful pattern! Do you think it would be possible to make it out of baby merino but following the pattern for a bigger size? I'm also wondering with the stitch pattern and yarn thickness, if it would be too bulky in the end?

What would you say the skill level is for this? Is there a video tutorial?
