Free Crochet Pattern for Newborn Baby Cardigan (Easy)

free crochet pattern newborn cardigan pattern
Megan's Easy Crochet Baby Cardigan Free Pattern. This is an EASY Crochet Cardigan Pattern for small NEWBORN Baby made all in one piece from the neck down. 
Please note: I am an extrememly LOOSE crocheter!! I will give you SEVERAL ideas of different sizes to try please ensure you measure around your finished cardigan to correspond with the desired measurement you require. The cardigan was originally made for my nieces preemie. Who was expecting a small newborn. She had a preemie so i actually ended up sizing the cardigan even smaller (I used a 3.5 mm hook and a DK yarn)
We couldnt believe how tiny the cardigan was, but She adored how snug it fit him,, it was worn at every opportunity as everything else seemed to drown him, so we knew he was being kept warm and cosy. As he grew slightly it was easy to whip up another one using a larger hook as we went. 
This one below was made for my newborn Grandson, using a 4.50mm hook and DK yarn 

I made this one above for my grandson just born, (I used a 4.50mm hook and Double Knit Yarn) it fitted perfectly for the first week when everything else seemed to drown him. 
And when I had posted a picture of him wearing it and was immediately inundated for requests for the cute pattern in different sizes, using different hooks and yarns. So read carefully to make it to your size  preference.

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.
