Layette Set for Baby

DSCN4438I made this set for my nephew’s baby that is due in June.  I used Lion Brand Pound of Love in “Antique White” (a little over 2 skeins) and Red Heart Super Saver in “Mirage” (2 skeins).

I really like the afghan.  It could be made into any size with any yarn. This pattern is from “Baby Afghans to Knit and Crochet” a Leisure arts leaflet 64.  This is an old leaflet, 1976, but I found one on Ebay (click on the link above).

The hat was taken from this blog.  I used double crochets not the cross stitch.

The jacket  I can’t remember what I used.  Boy am I getting old!!!  I did sew on a button from my grandmothers collection she gave me.

The shoes were from “Lullaby Layettes” a Leisure Arts book.  The size was for 3-6 months so I used one size smaller crochet hooks.

What is your favorite patterns to crochet for a boy?
