FREE PATTERN: Baby Coco Sweater

FREE PATTERN: Baby Coco Sweater
Our latest free pattern is for the sophisticated baby in your life. Baby Coco‘s sleek look is a lot simpler than it looks thanks to a bottom-up seamless construction. A few rows of eyelet lace and a little colorwork add some excitement, but this sweater would also look cute done in a solid color.

Our version is done using Zara, which comes in a wide range of colors, allowing for all kinds of beautiful combinations.

Baby Coco is worked from the bottom up in a seamless sweater design with only a few rows of color-work.

Finished measurements: 23” chest (approximately 12-18 month size)
