yarn: aarlan arwetta 75/25 wool/acrylic blend from a very old stash (my grandmothers)
pattern: '6 Mos. Baby Set' from crochetpatterncentral.com (the pattern shows it in oranges, which I LOVE, may do another in those colors)

Again, not a great image--it's blocking and I have yet to add the button at the collar, but wanted to share this great baby sweater pattern.  I made just the sweater, and ran short in my stash to complete long sleeves, but I think the short ones work just fine. My gauge and heavier yarn worked out a bit larger, so mine may fit a 9mo to 1 year old instead. Adjustments could be made to the pattern to fit a toddler as well.

This is a great pattern for intermediate beginners or someone attempting an in-the-round garment for the first time--it's easy to follow and shapes up quickly--once you get the idea, you're off and running! I found this type of increasing particularly easy on the brain.

Only question now, WHICH baby to give it to? Seems all my friends and family are in breeding mode... what would we crafters do on Sunday nights without them though?  ha ha

That is really cute.  You did such a good job.  You know what would make it look even cuter is if you add some crocheted flowers on it, if you were giving it to a little girl. I will have to try this out sometime although I get scared when it comes to crocheting clothes.  Always afraid I'll end up making one sleeve way too long. Cheesy
