Leaping Crochet

Craft: Crochet

Pattern: Leaping Crochet Baby Hoodie

Size: 6 mo. (12 mo. 18 mo. 2T)


The first crocheted sweater I have ever tried, and it did not disappoint! Beautiful results. Despite the simplicity of the design and the color striping, the finished object looks very striking.


Try different color schemes for different affects as well. The brown, red and blue palette has a sophisticated look, but the orange, green and tan 12 mo. one I made (not pictured) is a very playful, elvish version that is reminiscent of fall.

The only change I would make to this sweater is to increase less on the sleeves because they became very wide at the end. I also suggest making a smaller hood (if you make one at all.) I skipped the hood for the 6 mo. old version (which fit big baby way earlier than 6 months) but included it on the 12 mo. one, and it was very large.

Happy Crocheting!
