Crochet Baby Sweater Pattern, Evelyn Sweater

I am really excited to present to you my very first crochet baby sweater pattern. I am wondering what took me so long to design one. Going by the response I received for this sweater on Instagram and Facebook, I am hoping that you will love it as much as I do.

 

This crochet baby sweater pattern works up quickly with worsted weight yarn and an H hook. The body and the hem both have a textured design that adds to its cuteness. Try making one today.

The Design Process

I was under the impression that a Raglan baby sweater would be pretty easy to design but getting the sizes right took me way longer than expected. Getting the chest and the armholes right sucked the life out of me, but hey, all is well that ends well, right? I am in love with this design.

 

Though designing this was tough, making one following my pattern is going to be a breeze. A Raglan is in fact very easy to work up as there is no shaping involved for the armholes and neck.

 

 

 

If you are bored seeing the simple baby sweaters, this crochet baby sweater with a unique stitch will be your new best friend. The body of the sweater features puff stitches that look like stacked flowers.

 

 

 

The hem and the cuffs have oodles of texture too. All the stitches used are simple and easy, but combining them in the right way is what makes a design truly unique.

 

 

 

The Yarn

I am a big advocate of affordable yarns. When I design, I try to keep the expense to the minimum, so my readers don’t have to spend a lot.

 

I love Lion Brand Vanna’s choice yarn because it is affordable and comes in a wide range of colors. Last time I went to JoAnn’s I saw a new blue that was simply gorgeous. That color is next on my list.

 

This yarn has the right thickness and softness for a baby coat. Just imagine the different colors you can pick. The sky is the limit.

 

Honestly, I didn’t really think anyone would remember Lionbrand Vanna’s Choice when they wanted to make a baby item but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Can you tell how much I love these from the gazillion pictures I took?

Crochet Baby Sweater Features

*  This crochet pattern is written in standard US terms. You can see a US to UK conversion chart here.

 

*  It includes 6 sizes- 0-3 Months, 3-6 Months, 6-12 Months, 12-24 Months, 2T and 3/4T.

 

*  The pattern is designed with a 3-4 inch positive ease.

 

*  Worsted weight (size 4) yarn is used to make the sweater. That would be a 10 ply in Australia and Aran in the UK. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in colors Pink Grapefruit, silver Heather and Fisherman.

 

*  An H (5mm) hook is used for the body of the sweater and an I(5.5mm) hook is used for the hem and the sleeve cuffs.

 

*  This is a Raglan sweater and the neck and the armholes are easily made without much shaping.

 

*  The sleeves are worked directly on to the armholes and not made separately. So there is no sewing involved.

 

*  Sizes 0-3 and 3-6 took only 2 skeins of Vanna’s choice yarn. The bigger sizes took 3 to 5 skeins.

        I have been crocheting for years and have seen a lot of badly designed patterns, so I usually hate to purchase them. Your pattern was designed perfect! It was so easy to follow your directions. My sweaters are beautiful! Thank you so much!

    Do you have any plans to make this pattern in a larger size? My granddaughters are three and five and I would love to make them each one of these!
    Thank you

      Hi Jana, as of now the pattern only runs up to 3/4T. I might come up with bigger sizes if there is enough demand for it.

    I’ve been wanting to try this pattern for a while and finally purchased it tonight! I can’t wait to get started!

    I have a question for R2 of the body(WS): After I chain 3 do i have to do 1 dc in the same stitch in chain 3 or 1 dc in the next st? I did this whole round already and I ended up with the correct 10 puff st flowers but with the dc I ended up with 30 instead of 31. So I’m not sure if didn’t count a stitch properly in the beginning row.

    I would like to order this pattern but wondering if mandala sparkle yarn would work for the 3-4T size. It’s a 3 weight but a little heavier. Is there a guage swatch I could do?

      Hi Sharon, the pattern does include gauge, but it will be difficult to achieve gauge just by switching hooks with a thinner yarn. I am guessing you might have to make the sweater in the next size or so.
