The baby bobble cardigan crochet pattern is simple and cosy, with fun bobbles and in a raglan style, meaning no sewing! It’s a cute crochet cardigan for baby boys and girls, or an easy neutral for gender surprises.
In sizes from 0-3 months up to 18-24 months, it’s a go to pattern for baby birthdays, baby showers, or using up your stash on something cute and tiny.
My favourite colour option is to keep the cardigan in one colour and have contrasting bobbles, but I also love it in one base colour for a classic simple look!

About the Pattern
This modern baby cardigan is worked from the top down in rows. Increase stitches are placed at every corner to build up the yoke that will sit across the shoulders and chest. From there, there is a separation for the sleeves (decreasing hdc rows) and the body (featuring the puff stitch bobbles and straight hdc rows back and forth). There is no sewing apart from the ends, and an optional sc edging to finish.
