Edmond Sweater, a Classic Crochet Baby Sweater


Crochet pattern for a classic baby sweater, by April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio


Today's featured design is the "Edmond Sweater." I designed this a few months ago, had it professionally tech-edited, and have it available on Ravelry, Etsy, LoveCrochet and Craftsy. This is a baby sweater, designed in sizes 3 mo, 6 mo, 12 mo, and 18 mo. I used one of my favorite solid stitch patterns for this sweater. I think that "seed stitch" has something of a woven look to it. I crocheted a matching frog closure for this sweater and the instructions are included.

The yarn I used is Valley Yarns Valley Superwash dk, available at WEBS. As you can guess from the name, this is a dk weight superwash wool yarn. It is one of my favorites! I've also used this yarn for my "Sweet Little (Rounded) Mittens" and my matching "Sweet Little Hat." The pattern also uses a size I/9/5.5 mm crochet hook, or the size needed to match my gauge.

This will be a spectacular baby gift for a loved one or friend! Be prepared for lots of "awww!" if you gift this at a baby shower. Great thing is, it really is pretty quick to make, just because babies are so small. This will be a wonderful sweater to make for your own little one as well. This will make a great fall or spring jacket for him or her!
