Little Sweaters

I mentioned in my previous post that I had made these awesome little sweaters.

 They were so fun to make and worked up quickly too. I’m always a fan of projects that I can finish fast.

I found this pattern from the blog Yarny Days. The sweater is called Bombay Love.

On the pink sweater I crocheted a little button, and on the green one I used an actual button. Although both worked great, I like the look of the actual button.

Also I don’t knit… at least yet. So when it came time to make an I-cord I came up with a crochet version.

I started with a chain. (I don’t remember exactly how many I started with.) Once I had the length I wanted I simply slip-stitched all the way back to the beginning of the chain. And voila! A crochet cord.

One other thing I wanted to mention was how many rows I ended up doing.

  • I repeated Row 2 of the pattern 7 times. 
  • At the end I had a total of 16 rows.

Hopefully this info will help. The sweaters turned out to be the perfect size for a newborn!
