My First Ever Crochet Sweater

I have always been scared to Crochet clothing. It give me chills when I think about the measurements and shaping. Finally the day came, when I can run away but I said okay let's give it a try. Again, I waited a few days, reasoning myself how I have lots of work in office and how tired I get. I ran out of all the reasons when I received an email from Favecrafts (they send me daily new free online crochet patterns), It had a baby sweater pattern which even beginners can make. So I thought to give it a try.

My Boss had a baby girl this Christmas and I was planning to give her something crocheted. Obviously this experimental baby sweater was not what I had planned to give but my colleagues and family love the way it turned out and so this experimental baby sweater will be the gift for a newborn.

A Tiny Bit of Me

Obviously, this is not my original pattern, I even copied where the buttons were stitched. It lacked the me in it which did not make me happy. So I went ahead and added the edging to the sweater. A tiny bit of me and even the pattern said - Go ahead and feel free to decorate the sweater.

Below I have added the Original Pattern written pattern link, plus I also found a Youtube video for the same pattern by bobwilson123. Bobwilson123 has made a video tutorial for this pattern, so if ever you get stuck like me while reading patterns, it is very helpful.

This sweater took up a total of about two and half hours. It has given me confidence to make sweaters and I am already working on changing a few things in this pattern and making one with lots of me in it.
