I am determined to crochet something other than a simple scarf this year for Christmas gifts. I came across this adorable baby sweater pattern that is easy enough for a beginner. There is an excellent video tutorial that walks you step by step through the pattern so your sure to not make any mistakes! Once you get the hang of the stitches it crochets up very quickly.
