Baby cardigans in the Web - so many awesome free patterns!

Recently I made a bit of Internet research looking for some nice crocheted baby jackets and pullowers. As I found some good free stuff and I might need it all in the future I've decided to make a post with all of them in one place:

1. Found it the blog of Creative Jewish Mom, but the original pattern is made by Julie Holetz and can be found here. But I should confess I like the colours and finishing touches by Creative Jewish Mom better. It just looks more elegant this way I think.
2. Hehagon granny baby jacket. The description, made by Tina can be found in her pattern blog and is a newborn size. Bigger size (3-6 months) version made by Bev can be found here and I took the picture from Bev's page aswell. To me this one looks more girlish than boyish, but still a good and simple idea, besides if instead of using a lacy granny square stile we would use a solid granny it would look different... Just use your imagination.
3. Baby hooded cardigan with a zipper. Well, this one definetly looks boyish. But again - a bit of imagination, different colour, some embelishement like crocheted flowers or embroidery and it would look girlish enough.
Two sizes - 6 and 12-18 months, which is good.
The only thing that scares me is that zipper. Have no experience in puting a zipper in crocheted or knitted garmets...

4. Baby sweater that could be a unisex sort of garmet. I will definetly try to make one like this for My Little Man for the autumn as the sizes are 6, 12, 18, and 24 months and 12 months is exactly what we need.

5. Striped Baby Sweater. This one could be made for girl or boy just by changing the colour as the pattern is unisex aswell and size range is as for the previous sweater. This one is in my To-do list for autumn too.

6. And the last but not least - my favorite design this time, a baby cardigan made by Virkipa in her swedish blog. Good news is - she has english version too, you just need to scroll down the page to find it. And it's so simple that after finishing your first one you will want to start the second. Believe me, I know. Because that's what I did :)
In the next couple of days I will show you at least one finished baby cardigan or even two if I will finish the second quickly.


  1. I love these little tops Darya well done for finding them i love the last one but the link is wrong i think, it links right back to my blog (very strange as the other links don't) Would you check it for me please because I would love to make that little cardigan. :)

    1. Thanks! Great that you found it helpful :)
      There really was a mistake in the last link, thanks for noticing. Now it should work correctly. Let me know if it still doesnt.

      Good luck with crocheting that nice little cardigan :)

  2. I also love the last one, and as I have a new grandchild on the way, I think I may just have to try this out. Thank you :)

  3. love the sweater with the zipper, but cant find pattern.
