Crochet Ideas

One of my favorite crafts is crochet. I would like to post my projects and ideas here as well. I am currently working on a little sweater for a friend’s granddaughter. The original pattern was from the early 1990s, and while it’s pretty cute, it’s outdated. So I’m tweaking the pattern to be better-suited to today’s style.
Here is the progress so far.
I’m using a Leisure Arts pattern leaflet for a baby layette as a guide for the body of the sweater. I added a button placket and a scalloped shell stitch edge at the neckline and bottom of the sweater. Since the pattern is for 0-3 months, and I needed a toddler pattern, I changed the hook size and chose a bulkier yarn than indicated in the leaflet.
