Crochet Pattern: Hooded Baby Cardigan Sweater (5 Sizes)

By Rachel Choi – 3 Comments
This hoodie comes in 5 different sizes ranging from 0 – 24 months! This classic styled cardigan sweater gives you the opportunity to get creative. Feel free to crochet the sweater in multiple colors to create stripes, add a fun edging, or spice it up with cute appliques and buttons. The sweater is crocheted from the top down, all in one piece (no sewing required). The top down construction allows you to easily adjust the size of the sweater as you crochet, if needed. Layer it as a cute jacket in the winter!

    Thanks for posting this, Rachel! I’ve wanted to add hoods to these little sweaters for a while and I just was chicken to try to figure it out. I love these little sweaters and I whip them up all the time. Keep the good stuff coming!

    Is it possible to adjust this pattern to fit an adult?

      Hi Raquel,
      It would probably be easier to use an adult cardigan pattern and add a hood to it. This cardigan pattern is what I made the baby version based off of:
      If you want it to look more like the baby version, you can omit the ribbed edgings and just put a single crochet edging around it. And if you need help adding a hood, just let me know and I can help you while you crochet.
