"I love crocheting baby items and when I heard we had a new arrival in the family I decided to design a little cardigan for the new baby! Cardigans are perfect for layering and can be used all year round, making them so practical. Offered in three different sizes, this crochet baby cardigan pattern is a quick and easy project for you as there’s no seaming or tricky assembly. The instructions are the same for all three sizes (newborn, 0 – 3 months, 3 – 6 months) – all you need to do is switch up the hook size!"
