Bubble Baby Sweater Free Crochet Pattern

Bubble Baby Sweater

Don't you just love to snuggle with babies?  I know I do!  Back in 2012, I designed the Bubble Baby Sweater with comfort and warmth in mind.  I loved the texture of the stitch used and style of it when using a different color for the sleeves.  It reminds me of Leathermen jackets from High School and I think it would be a fun option to do in local school colors for baby photo props. It's a quick and easy project to work up whether it's for your own sweet little one or an opportunity to serve others.

I hope you'll enjoy this crochet pattern as much as I do.  

Be sure to add it to your favorites on Ravelry by giving it a "Heart"!
