This crochet baby bloomer and sweater set could not get any cuter. Unless of course, you put a baby in it!

Crochet baby clothes make perfect gifts, or a sweet soft touch for one of your own. You are in the exact right place, because these crochet baby patterns are easy, adorable, and practical.

Made with fine weight 2 yarn and an elastic waistband for a snug comfortable fit and easy ons and offs, this set is adorable and beginner friendly. A cute scallop edge along all the ends ads a touch of elegance to this simple set.

Crochet away for sizes 3-24 months!

The Yarn

The Alvina baby set features the soft and delicate Hobbii Friends Extra Fine Merino. It’s a fine weight 2 100% merino wool yarn. Soft and warm, it’s perfect for baby makes. I choose to work with a thinner yarn so the outfit wouldn’t be too bulky and remain cozy yet comfortable for your little ones.

Classic and Cute

For this design I wanted a simple classic baby set. I wanted something my mom could have made me wear when I was a baby but also something I would love to have my kiddos wear and hopefully something they’ll look forward to dressing their kids in.

The outfits I usually drool over in baby stores are cardigans and bloomer set. Practical, and so damn adorable!

The small scallop edge you can find on most of the edges of the crochet cardigan and bloomer pattern gives it an extra dose of cuteness. The gaps in the scallop edge stitches also serve as buttonholes, practical and beautiful.
