You'd think that babies would come with some warning. And they do, they do, at least in my experience. But when you aren't the one with the constant AHEM physical reminders, those 9 months just fly by! Before you know it, the imminent arrival is REALLY REALLY imminent... and as a crafter, you can't just run out to the big box store for some anonymous onesies! You must make something! A baby blanket is always great, but let's face it, they do take time. But a crocheted baby sweater? Perfect! Quick, easy, perfectly personalizable (it's a word, I decided), and they take just a little bit of yarn and a couple of fun buttons.
Over the years, I've come up with a fast and easy recipe for baby sweaters, and while I'll occasionally try something new, this is the design I come back to again and again.
