Crochet 6-9 Month Baby Sweater + Booties

Introduction: Crochet 6-9 Month Baby Sweater + Booties

About: I'm a teenage crafter! I crochet and make items to sell on my Etsy shop CustomRoseCrochet!

This super cute sweater and booties set is comfy and warm! It takes roughly 5-8 hours to complete (depending on how fast you crochet).
The "V" stitch is a half double crochet, chain one, half double crochet, all in the same stitch.

Supplies:

4 weight yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver)
Chenille Yarn (I recommend Bernat Pipsqueak)
5 mm crochet hook
Yarn needle
3 buttons
