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 The cardigan was originally made for my nieces preemie.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.  

PREEMIE  use a 4.00mm Hook and Double Knit Yarn = Worsted

I used Marriners Super soft Baby Double Knit

14 inches around 

(this was the size we needed for my nieces preemie)

                    NEWBORN -using a 4.50mm hook  and Aran

I used 1 x 100grm Ball of Redheart baby soft Steps 
= 16 inches around chest

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

Baby Bear Crochet Cardigan Pattern
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 button being offset at the front, this is because some baby cardigans can become wet under the chin from dribbling, this smoother edge ensures this area is nice and soft for baby's chin and no buttons rubbing. 

Cardigan is worked from the neck down, from the yoke in one piece.

I used 1 x Ball of 100g Cygnet Aran used for this project.
USING A 4.00mm hook I achieved a  finished chest size of 17inches around. (0-3 months)

Alternative hooks and yarn ideas I have used to make this pattern

I have also made this using (Red Heart Cream Aran ) with a 3.5mm hook, finished Chest size is 17 inches around  (Newborn)
A 4.00mm hook and James C brett Double Knit Gave me Chest size is 17 inches around  (Newborn)
