I recently purchased a pattern book for baby sweaters that are made in one piece and this is the first one I've made.  The entire thing is single crochet.  This is a 6 month size but I think the next ones I make will be larger as I'm concerned whoever receives this will outgrown it too quickly.

This is what it looked like when I was finished crocheting

It is very cute!  It also looks like it would crochet up fast, which is important since babies grow so quickly. 

The tiny bear button makes it extra special!

That is very well done, and the colors are beautiful.

The recipient is a very lucky kid!
