New Crochet Design: Sandpiper Sweater

This week sees the publication of Crochet Gifts 4 from Practical Publishing. As usual it’s full of great crochet projects for all abilities, including this rather sweet “Breton” style sweater. I love designing for babies and this pattern is simple enough for a beginner (there is a little bit of shaping in the sleeves, but otherwise it’s just double crochet). The red buttons add a touch of style and practicality. For larger sizes, the button closure can be omitted, making a simple slash neck opening which is easy for independent toddlers to pull on and (more likely) off!

You can find the Ravelry listing for this project here and Crochet Gifts 4 is in the shops now.
