Wow Thank You so much for the Beautiful sweater pattern...My daughter is 2 so I used a size I crochet hook hoping that would make it bigger for her...So far it looks like it will fit...I haven't totally finished...I need to do the sleeves and what not...But the pattern worked up so easy...I did get kinda confused on what part, but there was clarification right there to help..Thanks so much!

This is such a great pattern! I've always been to scared to try making anything other than scarves and blankets for fear I couldn't follow a pattern, I made a BEAUTIFUL fall cardigan for my 7 month old and everyone has commented on how cute it is. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I made this sweater instead of the cardigan one and it turned out great for my grand daughter. I made a hat to go with it that also used simply soft yarn, it makes quite a cute set with the teddy bear buttons I found. Thank you. Now to look at your other patterns. Do you think this one would be ok for a boy in the right colors?

I used this sweater pattern.

So So So easy, and SO cute. I got tons of compliments.

I used sock weight yarn, and multiplied the pattern by 1.5. It fit my small son at 2 months old.

I also alternated front-loop-only and back-loop only.

The link has a picture of the sweater.

I am making this for my daughter and so far it is surprisingly easy!However I am a little unclear about row 8, can you clarify a little more? Thanks :)

It took me only 3 days to make this sweater. Thanks for posting a pattern clear enough a novice like me can follow! :)

Kelly said...

To the last Anonymous poster, please check out my armhole tutorial to see how to do row 8.

Anonymous said...

I feel so silly! I didn't realize that row 8 WAS the armhole! It makes sense now, thanks so much for clearing that up!!

julie said...

i wanted to take a moment and thank you so much for this wonderful tutorial! i have always wanted to make a baby sweater and was never able to until i used your pattern. your instructions were GREAT!!!!!!!!! if you decide to write a crochet book, please let us know because i will be one of the first to purchase one!
thank you and God bless!

Christa said...

I'm a beginner and was delighted to be able to make a sweater! Thanks for sharing your pattern. I've made 3 already for friends' babies. I'm shortening the sleeves for summer. Would it be okay for me to donate one of these sweaters to a raffle to support my local midwives?

Kelly said...

Hi Christa, glad you like the pattern, sure you can donate one for raffle.

Thanks for sharing this! I made one yesterday for my 7wo lo (there is a bad pic here: http://s3.amazonaws.com/bk_store/images/photo_object/photos/4/4/4442457/image_00003-feed.jpg)

Interested in your size estimate though, as I used a 5mm hook, so one size bigger than yours and it only just fits him, he is a big baby, but no where near 6mo! I also needed to add rows onto the arms.

Really easy pattern though - planning to make another later.

Kelly said...

Hi Em, I couldn't see your picture, the link doesnt' work.
Like I wrote I got my sizing from measurements I found on the internet. It is frustrating sometimes to figure out sizes, I don't have any children so I don't really have an idea of how big babies really are. I have tried buying baby clothes and comparing them, but I dont' know how accurate the sizing is on them either.

Anonymous said...

this was the quickest sweater i've ever made. love love love it! i'm going to make a bunch of them! thanks for the great pattern!

Anonymous said...

i used your pattern but did a hdc for the edge on one and then a scallop edge on another. they are super cute as little sweater t's!

Kate said...

Has anyone converted this to a size 3 yet? I tried the link to Christina's conversion to a 4/5 but its not working. Gorgeous sweater!

Anonymous said...

Would love to know how to make larger sizes! Thanks.

ani said...

my baby's neckline is 15 inches, below armhole circumference is 20 inches and I want to make a sweater 11 inches long. I am a beginner, my gauge is quite tight please advise me.

Kate said...

I've started with this pattern twice and both times I deviated but I think the results are pretty fantastic. In the first case I transformed it into a size 3(ish)and did 3/4 length sleeves for my daughter. This time around it turned into more of a cape w/ a really girly twist. Here are links in case anyone wants to check them out.

I'm hoping you can help me! This is such a cute pattern and looked straight forward enough for me to make as a novice crocheter. The body of the sweater went without incident, but now I'm working on the sleeves and when I crochet in every stitch around the arm holes, I end up with arm holes that are 31 stitches! They're wide enough that I can stick my wrist through the sleeve. What did I do wrong? Thanks!

Anonymous said...

i've just finished this darling sweater in palest pink and added a scalloped edge along the bottom. this was my first sweater and your pattern was soo easy to follow and the sweater turned out beautifully. i only wish i'd been able to make sweaters for my babies (6&9 now). thanks soo much! <3 ellynfrances

love the pattern! thanyou! your sweaters are all just perfect and theyre quick and easy work...thank you so much. i crochet using disconted or discontinued yarn for friends and family that are expecting, because i cannot always affort a fancy gift. great job!
i <3 Metallica too! LOL. i have a feeling you and i would get along quite nicely :)

Melissa said...

PS..there is also so many ways to tweak this pattern to add something extra to it. and it also looks great with no sleeves over a long sleeve tshirt...this will be a favorite for a long time!

Hi
I am a beginner and thought that Kelly's Sweater looked like something I could do. However, could someone please tell me if the turning ch 2 counts as the first double. Thanks.
Lucille

Kelly said...

Yes, the chain 2 counts as the first DC.

Anonymous said...

how many stitches are we suppose to have for 2-5 rows; row 6; row 7 and the sleeve around

sheri said...

love you pattern but a beginner at sweater (firtst) and tried it but sweater was not right. I have been taught you should have numbers at the end of you rows. I just need to find out how many stitches for the end of rows. Thanks because i love them all..

Janet said...

Thank you Kelly, I have searched the web for a baby sweater. I can hardly wait to get started on it.

I love this pattern, it is so easy to follow and quick to make up. I have just fnished 2 gorgeous little jackets and mixed and matched the wool,added little flowers and slightly frilled the edge on one. I added two sweet little berets to match... quickly rinsed them through in some fabric softener and as soon as they were dry... packaged them in robbon and gifted them to a nieghbour who had just had a new granddaughter.....and in my ecxitement to show them off forgot to take a photo of them!

In the 1970s, I had a hooded pullover pattern using this same idea. After making at least a dozen, I played with the pattern to make a cardigan like yours and sold several. We all invent and reinvent.. I wrote out my directions and distributed to students in the free classes I taught at a local library, explaining how to size from newborn to 8 year olds.

Unknown said...

I just finished making this sweater. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. The directions were very easy to follow too. It came out beautifully. I'm kinda impressed with myself lol. Thank you

Hello I saw this on Summer:s tips and stitches, I am going in my stash and looking for some soft yarn, My daughter in law (she is my daughter as far as that goes) has 2 brothers whose wives gave birth to babies. Both were early but both are fine, I plan on making newborn size so I will use a g hook unless you recommend something different, I am making the masks today for our doctors and nurses. Everyone thought I would be crocheting away and I did for a month on an intermediate afghan (colorful celtic afghan) by bonnie bay crochet, With pressures of the days I got tired of making mistakes so this is going to be my go to project by the end of the day. I belong to a group on facebook Elyria Hookers and we crochet or knit or make plastic bag mattresses for the people who "need a hand up not a hand out". We put them in the town square the same day every year, I have done this for 5 years, It fills your heart when you see someone wearing your hat gloves scarf or whatever it is that you made, I just wanted to let you know I appreciate your pattern.

One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure illnesses and diseases and gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and send me the herbal medicine through courier service and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after 2 weeks plus the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished and blister dried off . I went to the hospital for a test and it was negative. this man is real and he is the solution to herpes virus. And other dangerous viruses so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him dr.lawsonherbalhome@gmail.com (call or whatsapp +2348154635774 here is also his website https://drlawsonherbalhome.weebly.com OR you can also contact him on IG @dr_lawson9 according to this great DR lawson he can also cure HIV, ALS,CANCER, COLD SORE,DIABETES AND many others.

I’m recommending Dr Godday to everyone who have herpes virus to get the cure from him. I was diagnose of genital herpes in 2015 and i have been searching and asking questions to see if i could get something to cure the disease because i did not believe what the doctors say that no cure is found yet. I came across a comment on Youtube and the person testify how she was cured from herpes and hpv after using Dr Godday herbal medicine. I quickly contact Dr email and explain my problem to him and he prepare the herbs and send it to me through courier and gave me instructions on how to use it and tell me to go for checkup after usage which i did after two weeks of taken the herbal medicine and my result was NEGATIVE. I waited another month and retested the result was still NEGATIVE and my doctor told me that am completely free from herpes. Am so happy and grateful to Dr Godday for what he has done for me and i will continue to share this for people out there to know that there is cure for herpes. You can contact Dr Godday on email and WhatsApp to get the cure from him. Email:goddayspiritualhome@gmail.com Or Call/What’s-app +1{919}4956404
