Sweet Baby Hoodie

Is there anything sweeter than baby clothes?  Honestly, I don't think so. 

A few weeks ago I crocheted a hoodie for the baby.  I just sewed the buttons on tonight.  It was the first sweater I'd ever crocheted, considering my mom just taught me how last month.  I thought it came out pretty good for a first attempt.

I got the pattern online from Bernat.  On their site the sweater looked like this:
Baby Hoodie Pattern
I used different yarn than suggested.  I had some grey and pink wool at home that I thought would be nice.  The smallest size on the pattern was six month.  I figured by the time my baby was 6 months she would want something in wool.  She's a very sensible baby already :)

I am really pleased with how it turned out. Actually, I think it's adorable.
 


My next crochet project is a wrap sweater (in pink of course).  I'm nearly done that too, but it's been much more frustrating.  I'll explain when it's all done.
