Baby Crochet in 3 Skein or Less

I love crocheting sweaters and pullovers in 0–3, months that is. Baby sweaters are incredibly cute and make great gifts—plus they are much faster than the baby blankets I can never seem to finish. Baby sweaters are also a great way to stash bust. And you can whip up adorable booties, hats, and toys to go with them.

Sharon Zientara has created a fun new book called Modern Baby Crochet which is chock full of baby crochet patterns that all three skeins of yarn or less. You can try your hand at crochet cables, create an adorable octopus toy, and more.

Here is Sharon to tell us more about why she decided to create this new book in her 3 Skeins or Less series.

Why Baby Patterns

In this, the latest addition of the 3 Skeins or Less series, we thought it only fitting that we focus on some of the cutest, most crochet-worthy people in our lives—babies!

The three skeins or less concept is perfectly suited to baby projects because little ones grow so quickly. The faster a baby item is to make, the longer he or she can wear it! Each one of the patterns you’ll find here is handpicked for maximum cuteness, as well as how fun it is to make.

Baby projects are great opportunities to hone your crochet skills. If you are a new or intermediate crocheter, there are plenty of interesting techniques in each pattern, but in a tiny, less intimidating project. We also included a few fantastic little sweaters, and if you’re thinking about dipping your toe into garment making, these are great patterns to help ease you into it and teach you some valuable lessons. Of course, if all you’re looking for is an adorable group of patterns to crochet for the wee ones in your life, we have plenty of those.

Whatever the reason you pick up this book, enjoy making something special for some very sweet recipients.
