One Day Crochet Baby Sweater
Thank you for sharing Yolanda
Super Yarn Mart used to give out this freebie pattern. I lost my copy. I finally decided to try this without a pattern. This may not be the specifics of SYM pattern but it worked for me. I'm quite pleased with the results.
There is no cutting of yarn. It is a continious crochet from right front to left front. I used Caron Simply Soft (2 - 6oz skeins because I made the hat and booties as well) because this yarn is soft and shines. If you have any questions, just holler.
THIS SWEATER WILL LOOK ODD AROUND THE NECK AREA BUT YOU WILL SEE ONCE YOU THREAD THE CORDING THRU THE NECK AREA.
The stitches are all done in the back loop....
Hooks: F or G
Chain 52: Work 40 dcs, 5 hdcs, and 5 scs. ( 5 hdcs and 5 scs are for the neck area) Following this formula you will do it for 12 to 14 rows. Please make sure you end at the neck area!!
For sleeve: 5 scs, 5 hdcs, 10 dcs, then ch. 15. The unworked stitches will be picked up in a bit.
For the cuff you will do 5 scs on the ch. 20 dcs, 5 hdcs and 5 scs. You will do this for 12 to 14 rows. AGAIN ending at the neck area.
Now you will do 5 scs, 5 hdcs, 10 dcs and pick up from where I said (in a bit)., 30 dcs. Do this for 22 to 24 rows, Again ending in the neck area.
You just made the back of the baby sweater.
Then you will repeat the same for left sleeve and left front!
Sew under arms.. The only sewing!!!!!!
Make a chain of 120, slip stitch in each and run thru hdcs across.
Pull slightly, you will see the sweater pucker up in the neck area. You can also use ribbon. It is up to you..
