Assembly:

  1. Turn your sweater/cardigan inside out, line up the back and side from the bottom, you can sc them together or a simple whip st, I did mine the sc way, make sure each st is matched up and secure them together all the way up to the cuff, repeat for the other side.

  2. The collar: By this stage you will notice that the collar is too wide, so we have to pick up and crochet st’s around the collar.

  3. Row 1.Begin in the top corner of the right front, join yarn with a sl st and make 1 sc in same place, 1 sc in the next space, skip 1 space, 1 sc in next, all the way around, you will have approx 38 sc, ch 1 and turn ( no need for perfection here a st or 2 out will be fine)

  4. Row 2. *1 sc in next 2 sc, sc next 2 sc together (decrease made), 1 sc in next 2 sc, * repeat from *to* to end, finish off.
     
  5. You may like to make the collar a row or 2 longer, you can do this with out decreasing.
     
  6. Now if you haven’t already, get out that needle and sew in loose ends, add buttons to right front, as many that suits you.
     
  7. Now you can be a little fancy and add some nice picot edging around the sleeves or collar, add a flower or even make it in a two tone color.
     
  8. Note the spacing at the top of the front edge's where I have placed a button each side, this is the style of the sweater and I have added the 2 buttons for simple decoration.

I don't think I've ever seen 8 ply. Are we talking chunky or bulky? And how much? it doesn't say.

This sweater is quick and very easy, I have done it a number of times. I have also made the pants and booties. I made a hat using the same stitches.

Hi madblack13 we're so glad you like the pattern! We'd love to see pictures of your project! Feel free to upload a photo of your version of the One Piece Baby Sweater using the image uploader. Have a great day!--FaveCrafts Editors

I have made this sweater and love the pattern it is very simple. I would like to see it in different sizes, the pattern only has one size. Can someone give instructions to adjust the pattern for different sizes?

i used 4ply knitting worsted yarn and it turned out to be a size newborn to 3 months size. makes a nice warm sweater.

i made this sweater for my great grandaughter and it was so easy to do. it turned out so nice. love this pattern. windytee

I made 3 of these for my granddaughter and they were so easy to do!!! the pattern as SEVERAL sizes to choose from...with in the pattern.....I made her 3 of graduated sizes..so go for it!!it will turn out beautiful!!

I am still a beginner crocheter but I don't see anywhere within the pattern where it gives you sizes to choose from?? Just can't find it! Please help. I wanted to make this a little bigger, like 6 to 9 months or even bigger.....:)

Very nice. Is there a gauge guideline for the pattern?

This pattern is on Ravelry also. 8ply yarn is a 3 light in American terms. The size says newborn to 3 months.

Thanks for clarifying the 8 ply yarn confusion. :)

what is 8ply yarn and what size is this sweater?

Wonderful! What size baby/child does this fit please?

I also don't understand what you mean by 8 ply yarn - perhaps two strands of 4 ply but the pictures don't relfect that kind of bulkiness. Otherwise - I think this pattern has the best pictures and illustration that I HAVE EVER SEEN in my 50+ years of crochet! CONGRATS TO YOU!!!

Unclear as to what you mean by 8 ply yarn. Please explain. What yarn did you use?

I believe that if 4 play is a worsted weight then 8 play must be some kind of bulky yarn.???
