Modern Baby Sweater Crochet Along

When I saw this adorable sweater on Annie’s, I knew I had to make one for a little girl that I knew! Elizabeth of course!  I have partnered with Annie’s to host a crochet along. For fun, I will be making the Modern Baby Sweater (pattern includes a hat as well) for Elizabeth to wear during these cool months ahead. Do you know a little girl who would like a sweater too? Sizes available 6-9 months, 12 months and 18 months!  Here is a link to grab the pattern!  The pattern calls Schachenmayr Baby Smiles Bravo Baby 135 fine and Schachenmayr Baby Smiles Lenja Soft but here in the US I am not able to get that yarn quickly and you know us crocheters, we have to start a new project as soon as we find it! So, I found a fabulous alternative, the yarn that I am using is Bernat Softee Baby and Bernat Pipsqueak yarn.Crochet tip: If you find a similar yarn for your project even if it varies in weight, as long as you check your gauge then the yarn should work for that project. I had to go up a hook size to an I – 5.50mm hook but I was able to get my gauge with 13 stitches in 4 inches.  Crochet Along Schedule:9/15 – 9/17: Grab your supplies and check your gauge9/18: Waist and Right Front and Sleeve9/19: Back and Left Front and Sleeve9/19: Cuff and Skirt9/20: Right and Left Bands and Collar9/21: Band, Tassel, Back Strip and Fuzzy Dot (Optional)9/22: Hat (Optional) You can work at your own pace but this is the schedule that I will be working and sharing my progress with you here, Facebook and Instagram! Don’t forget to share your project photos too!  Alright, it is time to get started!                                               ~Ashley
