Carefree Days

I just finished this cardigan and shorts set for William. I am very pleased with how it came out. This is an 18 mos. size but the patterns goes up to a size 4T. The pattern called for a DK yarn, but I used Cotton Plus, which did make it a bit on the heavy side, but I figure an outfit like this is more sportswear than playware. The pattern is from the book, Crochet For Tots by Nancy Queen. Its a very easy fact all the patterns in the book are very easy. Some might say boring, but I disagree. Such patterns lend themselves well to changing. You can use different stitch patterns, change the sizes of the sleeves and pants legs, use your imagination and make it your OWN creation.

Now its on to Sydney's outfit.....her birthday is approaching.

Crochet, Away!

Your outfit came out really cute! I like cardigans with collars for boys - they're different than what you normally find.

I have that book, and although the patterns may be simple, they are very cute! I've made the Palm Beach sweater a couple of times ;)

very nice! I like the color yarn you used. I like simple patterns better anyway, especially for clothing.
