Hook 3.50mm, 4.00mm hook

Additional Supplies

FREE Crochet Cardigan Pattern (3-6 months)

I was asked if I would consider making a bigger pattern for the popular Baby Bear Newborn Cardigan. Probably it is such a popular crochet baby cardigan pattern because its so easy. The readers request was to use Double Knit Yarn and a 3.5mm hook. to make a simple baby cardigan, suitable for a boy or a girl.  T\he simple method of working top down means it is a very beginner friendly introduction to making baby clothes. I honestly do not make cardigans or sweaters any other way now.
Of course designing a whole new sized item takes time, lots of trials and errors and a few times ripping it out. My designing process is not really straight forward, I work backwards from finished measurements. I am sure there is an easier way however I like to fiddle around and, well basically just do it my way. Eventually I have now worked out the perfect finished size for a 3- 6 month old baby. AND more importantly a simple straightforward pattern.

Babies, babies and even more babies....It seems my whole family is expecting! And means I get to look at adorable crochet pattern for babies....Woo woo its just great news for me as I get to indulge in my most favorite pastime. Crocheting newborn baby items.
As you probably know by now I have taken a slight step back from producing and writing my own patterns (wondering what on earth I am talking about you can read my story here (Where Have I Been)

Anyway once I had completed the bigger projects for my aunt and uncle I was bought several balls of yarn (Blue and Cream) for the babies we are expecting within the family.
One is definitely a boy...lol the scan showed it clear as day hence the blue yarn.

The other little one will be a wonderful surprise. Hence  the Cream. Sidar Snuygly (BUY NOW)  It is so soft and snugly it makes me feel all yummy inside. Working with it is like being in heaven surrounded by little fluffy clouds (I know  overboard description but it IS awesome)

Easy Newborn Crochet Cardigan FREE Pattern A Star is Born

 FREE crochet cardigan pattern for a newborn, that will fit the newly born baby perfectly. This crochet cardigan is made from the neck down using the single crochet.  Giving a nice firm neck and shoulder area, and for the body part  I wanted a nice pattern effect, eventually I decided on the star stitch. I have hunted around to find the perfect fitting first sized baby cardigan, and struggled, after my friend gave birth to a very healthy but small baby girl. Every outfit was way to big even in the first sizes, so the Star is Born baby cardigan was perfect.

Megan's Easy Crochet Baby Cardigan Free Patterns. Basic Crochet Cardigan Pattern for Babies (Easy)  This little crochet cardigan pattern really is one of the easiest I make.  It was originally made for my nieces preemie. And she adored how snug it fit him, as he grew slightly it was easy to whip up another one using a larger hook as we went. I had posted a picture of him wearing it and was immediately inundated for requests for the cute pattern. It is one of those patterns that is in my memory and I just find myself making it time and time again, SO I have finally put it down in writing for you all.

This is brilliant. Such an enjoyable crochet project. I love simplicity of this crochet pattern.   BUT please NOTE: this is not a beginners pattern,  .  I would like to think if you have mastered simple pieces increasing and decreasing, you will find this a very easy project.  It is made in basic shaped pieces and then sewn together.
You should have experience in shaping for pieces front and back and neck edges. I have already answered many questions in the comments section please read through the WHOLE pattern before commencing.

This can be made for a boy or a girl, but really the pattern gives it a really cosy texture and my niece loves her son wearing this hooded cardigan whilst out and about.

Sew Hood seam down the back. Sew Hood along neck from edge to edge.(you will find the hood is bigger when laid out than the actual neck line (along back, down shoulder, and along front)

Easy Baby Crochet Cardigan Sweater Patterns - (Newborn -3 months) Baby Bear Cardigan

Baby Bear Crochet Cardigan Pattern
free baby crochet patterns0 easy crochet cardigan pattern for baby-baby crochet patterns-free crochet patterns-crochet cardigan
I must admit this is one of the cutest crochet cardigans for a baby boy I have made.  And the Pattern is so easy to adjust to get a different look for your baby sweater jacket.  I like the off set front, this is because some baby cardigans can become wet under the chin  from dribbling, this smoother edge under the chin ensures this area is nice and soft for baby's chin.
With no annoying buttons or buttons holes being wet and irritating their  delicate skin at feeding times.
Cardigan is worked from the neck down, from the yoke in one piece.
I also only used I x Ball of 100g Cygnet Aran used for this project.
Finished chest size is 18inches around. (0-3 months)
(I have also made this using (Red Heart Lisa Cream DK ) with a 3.5mm hook, finished Chest size is 16 inches around  (Newborn).

Free Crochet Pattern Beautiful Vintage Swing Baby Cardigan (0-3 months)

Free Crochet Patterns: Vintage Style Baby Cardigan and Matching Hat (Crochet Baby Set)
As you know I love experimenting with crochet patterns and I was really pleased how this little baby cardigan and hat turned out. I chose purple to fit in with the slightly vintage feel I wanted but of course you can pick any colour you like. I crocheted this up in about 2 hours using gorgeous soft double knit yarn. 
The cardigan itself is worked up in one piece and looks and feels fabulous even if I say so myself.
Free Crochet Patterns-crochet baby layette patterns-baby sweater patterns- Baby Cardigan and Matching HatThis baby cardigan pattern is one you can follow along at home. The cardigan is designed to be fairly heavy the better to keep baby warm and cosy when out in the pram. The flared sleeves are really pretty but, because they are short, it will work best worn over a long sleeved top of some kind. My friend had asked for shorter length arms. So she could put the baby jacket over babies all in one baby grow.
 But You can lengthen the arms  and the instructions are included in the pattern
I've styled it so the cardigan hangs from a high yoke then out to a full and flouncy flare so it lies in nice folds. The finished Jacket sits just at the right length if baby had on the fancy ruffled pants. Since it is an open pattern, you can add your own little touches like ribbons if you want to.
The cute little hat is perfect for keeping the chill off baby’s head and it was so quick and easy to make too. I was particularly pleased with the scalloped edge which I think just adds to its appeal.
Your baby will be the talk of the park – or the street, or the party – in this matching crocheted baby cardigan and hat. Teeny tiny crocheting projects are always fun to do and I just loved how this one turned out. S
he will look fab and be cosy and warm when you are out and about. I think this set would be ideal for a new baby gift or baby shower – but what do you think?
Crochet baby cardigan patterns are fun to create and even more fun to work up.
