Welcoming a new addition to the house has always been a thrilling moment for both parents and relatives. Whether it’s a baby boy or a baby girl, family members are always eager to gift happy parents all kinds of baby needs; clothes, toiletries, or even diapers. If you’re expecting, or planning to gift someone who does, have you think of anything special for the baby?
Rather than a fancy, overpriced baby dress why don’t you try something new? Say, something like a handmade crochet dress? But I don’t know what kind of dress I should make, you may have thought. If you feel that way, relax! You’re not the only one.
If crocheting is not your strongest forte, then you will find this simple crochet baby dress and hat very enjoyable to be made. Here is a free pattern, great to come to your help: I HEART MY DRESS. The dress is monotone, in one color, but certainly not boring. The heart patterns that are sewn on the sides that act as pockets add as a nice variation to the single-colored dress.
Not only easy to be made, the crochet dress is totally adorable! Imagine your cute little one walking around with your handmade dress; completely charming everyone while doing so. The dress also fits for everyone between the ages of 6 to 18 months, meaning your effort to knit the dress won’t go to waste that soon.
The dress is also completely safe for younger children; as you won’t find any buttons or harmful accessories on the front part of the dress. The one piece beg at neck edge would also be very comfortable when worn. The sleeves are also designed to be slightly puffy, so your baby won’t find it too tight in the arms. The buttons are placed on the back side of the dress.
Although it certainly requires your time and utmost attention on the making, you won’t need to spend a lot to make this dreamy dress. The only tool you need is a size 3.5 mm (U.S E/4) crochet hook. If you find the color gray too dull to your liking, you can also change the color of the yarn and come up with a brighter-colored dress. A perfect handcrafted gift for your baby, this crochet dress will surely be an unforgettable memory even if your child has grown up.
