The crochet textured baby cardigan is my second cardigan design. It is a very easy to follow pattern

Cardigans are perfect for baby shower gift, for both genders, its great for all seasons,you can be sure that it would keep your little one warm.

The textured crochet baby cardigan is a very beginner friendly pattern and the pattern repeat is quite easy and the cardigan requires no seaming.

I used about 300 yards of light worsted weight yarn for the 0-6 months size. The yarn fiber is cotton, which is great for baby projects.

This cute crochet baby cardigan is worked top down, so you will be working from the neckline to the bottom band. The yoke is a perfect square. It will sure fit your baby well.

For the lower part, I used a textured stitch combination. Then I made the bottom edging and then the button band and the button holes band. I made the sleeves next and then finished the cardigan by attaching the buttons.

The textured crochet baby cardigan contains instructions for sizes 0-6(6-12,12-18,18-24) months. This blog post however contains instructions for size 0-6 months in both US and UK terms.
