About the Pattern
Because it uses a few non-basic stitches, this free pattern is for intermediate crocheters. Made with rows and rows of half double crochet stitches and a few half double crochet two together, this pattern creates a long rectangular blanket sewn together at the top to form the hood.
After the whole blanket is done, you can now work on creating the edging of the blanket. You’ll work on each row up to the hood and down the other side. With the edging done, you’ll have to fold the blanket up and position the buttons.
The buttons will act as the closure of the blanket. Make sure the button you’ll be using will fit through the holes of the edging you created! With the buttons in place, you have now created an adjustable sleep sack for your newborn, perfect for your fast growing little one.
It is great to note that this pattern is intended for newborns who have no interest in tiny things (like buttons) yet, it is best to replace the buttons with chains as your little one grows and gets interested in shiny little things.
