Crochet Baby Sweater Pattern, Evelyn Sweater

Share the Love!


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.

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. I also have a free crochet baby cardigan pattern based on this same Raglan pattern.



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 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.

*  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.

*  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.

Hi there, just wondering if this pattern is beginner-friendly? I’ve only done baby booties so far. Thanks 😊

If you have done baby booties, I think you will be able to handle this too.

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.
