This gender-neutral outfit is perfect for a baby 3-9 months with loads of texture and simple striping. The hat and sweater body is made using the bean stitch (stitch instructions included) for plenty of stretch, while keeping the sweater cozy. The ears incorporate a thermal single crochet stitch (stitch instructions and photo tutorial included) to help the ears stand tall. This is a great way to learn new stitches while putting them into practice. These fast, cozy patterns make a great baby shower gift!
