This new baby and kids free crochet sweater pattern is the perfect addition to your little one’s spring wardrobe!

This modern sweater is worked from the top down in rows. Simple increases are used to create the yoke, followed by a sleeve separation. The textured body and sleeves are made from the same pattern combination and include double crochets, half doubles, slip stitches, and puff stitches. The circular yoke makes it easy to create short or ¾ length sleeves, perfect for any season.
