Karen has been making several of these cute crocheted baby sweaters, using the Eloise Baby Sweater free pattern. The matching hats are her own addition.
The pattern calls for machine-washable worsted weight yarn, and Karen chose to use Uptown Worsted from Universal Yarn. It’s a high-quality acrylic yarn, suitable for soft but hard-wearing adult sweaters and afghans as well as frequently-washed baby things. And it comes in a fantastic range of colours – Karen has chosen sophisticated two-colour combinations for her sweaters, but you could also pick a range of bright rainbow colours for the accents, to copy the style of the original pattern.
If you want to use wool for this pattern, Cascade 220 Superwash would be another great choice.
Thanks to Karen for being the first to share her project pictures to our gallery!
