Crochet Set Sail Baby Sweater Pattern by Crochet For You.

Today I love to share with you how to crochet this baby sweater. I crocheted this baby sweater pattern thinking about a sailboat on the sea. I just loved how it turned out. I hope you like this pattern as much as I like it. 🙂

When talking more about the pattern, the main body part works in both round and rows. As you know, crocheting rounds and rows have two different looks but I wanted to create the same texture, I turned the work at the end of each round. By doing this I got the same effect from both ways, crocheting rounds and rows.

And I want one more thing to tell you my friends before starting the pattern. It is about the yarns I used. Since I have lots of sport weight yarns in my yarn stash, I used them to make this baby sweater. If you used DK weight yarn you can probably make a larger size sweater. But I haven’t tested it yet. If you make it tell us the final result. 🙂 I would like to know about how it turned.
