Following is the easiest and fastest way to crochet baby sweater. This pattern is suitable, even for beginners.
You will need single or multi colored medium weight yarn, 5.5 mm crochet hook, and couple of buttons to crochet baby sweater. At first, make a 4 inch x 4 inch gauge, casting on 13 single crochet stitches. Remember, you have to alter the measurements, given in this tutorial, to fit your baby’s size.
A baby sweater requires 5 rectangular parts to make 2 fronts, 2 sleeves, and 1back portion. Let’s start with the back side. Cast on 27 chain stitches. For the base row, single crochet in the second chain from hook. Do 26 stitches and one single crochet in each chain end. Continue doing this until you get the required measurement. Tie off the last stitch.
For front part, single crochet in the 2nd chain of the hook. Make 13 stitches and one single crochet stitch in each chain towards the end. Turn work and continue this until the desired measurement is achieved. Tie off the last stitch. You have to do this for two parts.
In order to make a sleeve part, you have to single crochet in the 2nd chain of the hook. Cast on 20 stitches and do one single crochet stitch towards the end of the chain. Continue doing this until the desired measurement is achieved. Then tie off the last stitch. You have to follow the same process for the second sleeve rectangle.
