If you hate sewing as much as I do, then you will love this baby sweater. Designed as a seamless yoke cardigan you will end up sewing just the buttons. Ok, and the pocket(s), but this is totally optional.

This is an easy crochet pattern, geared to the ones that have already crocheted at least one garment before. The stitches are very basic and the pdf comes with a photo tutorial section to explain anything that’s not a standard hdc.

Simple enough but it will keep you entertained with the beautiful braids and increases, and then just mindless crocheting till the end.
