The Sweet Potato patterns make up a simple crocheted baby layette set that would be perfect for little girls or boys depending on your color scheme. For a warm weather baby choose a cotton or cotton blend yarn. Take the designs into cooler months with a superwash wool or acrylic yarn. No matter what fiber you go with, always choose a machine washable yarn when making baby items.
You can't go wrong with this classic baby beanie hat pattern. The crown of the hat is constructed completely from double crochet stitches. The lower part of the hat uses an interpretation of the border stitches from the matching blanket.
This blanket has just the right amount of detail. A single contrasting stripe adds a subtle splash of color. The main body of the blanket is worked in rows while the outer border is constructed in rounds.
Keep little feet warm and protected in a pair of handmade crochet slippers. Crocheted slippers and booties make great gifts for new babies and parents.
This crochet baby sweater features a buttoned shoulder seam for easier on and off over baby's head.
Hesitant to work the crochet increases necessary to a beanie? This square-top baby hat is the perfect solution. Sweet Potato Squared is still worked in the round, but doesn't require the crown shaping stitches of a beanie style hat.
