Baby: 2 Short Cardigans


These are two crochet cardigans for baby girls, with short sleeves...perfect for summer:
Estos son dos cardigans para bebé hechos en ganchillo, con mangas cortas...perfectas para el verano:

a.  White Short-Sleeved Cardi

Made in crochet with white cotton (Size: 18 m)
Hecho en ganchillo con algodón blanco. (Talla de 18 m)

Made from the top down, raglan-style.

Instead of buttons, I added a crochet string to tie on the front, with fantasy pearls on the tips.
En lugar de botones, le puse una cinta a ganchillo para amarrar al frente, con perlas de fantasía en las puntas. 

And a small crochet flower…of course!

  2. Your work is absolutely stunning. And I love the colours and buttons and pearls----- just everything

  3. Very pretty Ana. I love them both! X

  4. So pretty - that little green one is precious!

  5. very pretty Ana...

  6. They are gorgeous Ana, your work is always so neat and perfect :)


  8. Just beautiful........as always :)

  9. So nice!
    I wish I knew someone who will have a baby soon; I would try to make one!

  10. So cute!!! Love the colors. Very feminine and pretty.

  11. I want to try to make one of these cardigans, if you don’t mind.
    Without a pattern, just give it a try.
    What size crochet hook did you use?

    1. That would be great, Estella :-)
      I think I used a hook 3mm (but maybe it was 3.5 mm)
      I wish I could help you with the number of st for the neck, but I checked my notebook and I did not write it down.
      There is a baby pattern that I used to learn how to make these cardigans, and maybe you it can help you too:

      Let me know how it goes...

    2. Hi Ana,
      you can see my result here: http://dehakerij.blogspot.nl/2013/06/babyvestje-baby-cardigan.html
      If you happen to have some time you should try to make a pattern!
      These cardigans are so cute. And there are no cardigans on Ravelry that are nearly as nice as yours!
