Crochet baby cardigan

For a sweet little baby-on-the-way I made a little crochet cardigan. The pattern I found in the Dutch issue of Simply Crochet ( Simply haken 04/2015), and it’s available in the English magazine in Issue no. 32 of this year.

The pattern starts at a size 1-2 yrs, but I decided to make a smaller version by using a thinner crochet hook and a different kind of yarn. I crocheted with a 4 mm hook, and used a mixture of cotton and acrylic. The green I still had lying around, waiting for a good destination, the other colours I couldn’t help buying during a visit to our local Hema . The result is an extremely soft and almost too sweet little cardigan size 3-6 months…..and me….fallen in love……

I enjoyed this pattern so much! It’s not complicated at all, you just need to read the pattern carefully and all you need are a few basic stitches. It’s fast too! This pink cardigan was done in one wednesday afternoon. I worked away the threads on a trainride to work (I should crochet more often on the train!), and blocked the cardigan back home, overnight.

I fell so in love with the pattern I decided to make another one……for a sweet little girl, using the yarn I have now anyway. I’m not sure this will be the last one I make though…………

  1. I absolutely adore Simply Crochet magazine. I didn’t remember this pattern and I looked and sure enough, I’m missing issue 32. Your cardigans came out beautifully! Thanks for sharing. You’ve inspired me to start one for my daughter. 🙂

  2. Beste Marieke,

    Al een poosje ben ik op zoek naar een leuk babyvestje en vind dat nu bij jou. Ik heb de link gevolgd, maar kan het tijdschrift/patroon niet meer bestellen (ik kan dat in ieder geval niet vinden). Zou ik van jou dit patroon mogen kopen? Ik zou er heel blij mee zijn (want drie kleinkinderen op komst 😊).

    Ik hoop van je te horen.

    Hartelijke groet,
