I had my 20week ultrasound the other day. Having convinced myself that the baby was a little girl I was surprised to find out that in fact…..

It's A Boy!

The same day I went out to buy something boyish and I have to say that I was more than a little disappointed in the range of boys clothing available. I came to the conclusion that if I wanted something I liked I would either  have to spend thousands of dollar at boutique European online shops or I’d have to make something myself. With a little trepidation I picked up my crochet hook for the first time in over 3 months (the morning sickness is still lingering and I find the motion of crocheting makes it worse).  I found this free crochet pattern via Pintrest and decided to give it a go:


Oh how I’d forgotten how much I LOVE crochet. Sometimes I get too caught up in the end result and I forget how much I enjoy the actual process of making. There is nothing more satisfying than making something with your bare hands.

Boy Cardigan

I found the bunny rabbit image on the internet and printed it onto transfer paper and ironed it onto the little onesie. God bless Creative Commons.

Crochet Cardigan

I altered the original pattern somewhat but you can find my project notes on Raverly here.

To celebrate I’m also working on a few baby boy patterns like this knit-look pixie bonnet so stay tuned…

  1. Congratulations! I found you through Flickr and love your crochet designs. This outfit for a boy is lovely! You sound exactly like me–with my second baby I found out I was expecting a boy at 20 weeks and was disappointed I couldn’t find anything nice for boys that wasn’t covered in sports logos, dinosaurs, trucks etc. and couldn’t afford to buy the lovely outfits from the European shops, so I resorted to making some things myself. Look forward to seeing some more of your beautiful designs!
