This crocheted sweater is available in sizes Newborn - 24 months, and is crocheted in a Double Knit making this a nice lightweight soft cardigan that is wearable at any time of year. I was asked to crochet his in Grey yarn which I ordered from HERE (*)

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)
Make sure you find back centre

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)
