Crochet: Baby Sweater

These pictures are kind of backwards. The one at the bottom is supposed to be at the top. That's how the baby sweater started out. I like this pattern alot. It starts from the shoulder and neckline and works it's way down. I would like to take this pattern one day and try and make a sweater for myself. I think I could do it.
And of course, I didn't finish the sweater in time, but the mom of the baby really liked it. I was surprised though, when I put it up against the baby, it was too big. The baby was only 2 weeks old, so maybe I didn't gauge it right. Oh well. Good thing a baby can grow into stuff.
(Oh and I did get that tangled yarn at the top free. It took some time though, but I was finally able to work through it).

I'm sure your friend still loves the sweater! As you said, babies can always grow into stuff, and when babies are born, they're different sizes, so your estimate was probably not too far off. Cute pink sweater!

Thank you.

I just spoke to my cousin today and she said that the baby is only about a month old now, but she's already wearing things for a 3 month old.

Hopefully, she can still fit the sweater..if not, no problem. I can always make another one.
