BABY BOY JACKET with matching cap n socks

This is a really cute and simple jacket for a lil boy.  I know that in the world of crochet, ‘boys’ clothing has a small range – but then, what does one make for a lil baby boy after an afghan and probably a jacket? It’s not like we can make cute lil hair accessories and bows and lace-stuff now, can we? J

I’m glad that you’re back here with me as we explore this new creation together.

Materials used : Today I’ve use about one hank of Oswal 3-ply acrylic yarn,  with a 4 mm crochet hook 
General material info I think this pattern can be made using any yarn with a suitable hook.  The pattern I’m referencing against uses about 100g of acrylic yarn with a 4 / 4.5mm crochet hook – so way higher than what I’ve used, but this still works J

Skill level :  Advanced beginner 

Here is a sizing chart for general neck sizing

What I loved about this pattern is that the stripes worked vertically.  Years back, when I’d first started crocheting, I’d worked a similar jacket which had a shell/simple “V”-st pattern that worked vertically. 

With this unique pattern, we start with the left front, work all the way past the back and then onto the right front, making armhole “openings” and shaping neckline as we go along.

This pattern has been given a “Beginner” skill level – but I think it’s advanced beginner. 
There are a few typos that I will send off to the designer and have her edit in.

How do you get the size right? – work a gauge swatch as recommended.

I started off with the idea of making just the jacket, but not only did I have yarn left, I also thought a full set would be great .. and with this pattern link, you get a layette – so hey .. enjoyJ

For my jacket, I’ve used 2 skeins of 3-ply Oswal acrylic yarn held together, with a 4 mm crochet hook.

For the lil cap, rather than tie it up at the top, I stitched it up to give it a closed finish.

And that’s done.. yet another project brilliantly executed ! J
