Baby cardigan and the benefits of deadlines!

I started to knit this cardigan last summer. But then I got distracted with other knitting and crochet projects and forgot about it for a while. Also, the baby arrived in October so not so much free time since then!  πŸ˜ So when I went back to this project to finish it I realised it would be too big for next winter or fall, so I had to finish it quick! And then I did. So it must be true, when you have deadlines you find the time to finish stuff! πŸ˜‚ It worked in this case.

Pattern bought on ravelry, it’s called Snug (link)

Easy crochet baby boots

 

I found some easy and cute baby boots on Pinterest, so decided to adapt the pattern to crochet and here is how they turned up:

Here are the instructions:

(All stitches were half double crochet stitches)

Then sew it all together:

A1 with B1, A2 with B2, ans both Cs with D

This gives you boots for 1-3 month baby, approximately. I suppose it is easy to “scale-up” but havenΒ΄t tried yet…

Now you can go and make as many variations as you want πŸ™‚

Some examples made by  me:
