Shortie Sleeper



Note: I've had questions about the hat and booties-did I have the patterns for them? The patterns for those I found at Crochet Pattern Central

The bootie pattern seems to have been moved or removed so I don't know where that is anymore. Crochet Pattern Central does have tons more bootie and hat links so you can pick ones you like. The hat pattern is here if you want to do it and it is super-easy. (edited April 1, 2007)


Pattern © 4/22/2005 Julie Hicks

Baby Sport Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart)-between 3-4 ozs

Crochet hook sizes H & K (I used Boye aluminum)

4 small buttons

Gauge: Size K hook-5 sc & 7 rows = 1-1/2"

Size: Newborn-3 months

Note: Try not to hold your tension too tightly.

Note: Even rows are the right side.
_________________________________________________________

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 6 ch. 3 sc in next ch, sc in next 8

skip next 18 sc, sc in last 13 sc-48 sc

Rows 12-30: sc in each sc. At the end of Row 30 join with a sl st to first
st of the row to close the garment. You will now be working in rounds. 48 sc

Next 4 Rnds: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc around, join with sl st to beg sc.

Note: It's easy to miscount working these 4 rnds, make sure you count your
sts and that you still have 48 at the end.

Crotch and left leg: Right side facing, ch 8, skip 23 sc, sl st in next sc,
ch 1, sc in same sp, sc across ch-8 and back around left leg to beg sc. Do not join,
mark beg of rnd with st marker-you should have 32 sc.

Next rnd: *sc in next 6 sc, dec over next 2 sc, rep from * around-28 sc

Next rnd: work even.

Next rnd: *sc in next 5 sc, dec over next 2 sc, rep from * around-24 sc

Next 6 rnds: work even in the round, do not join rounds. Sl st in next st, end off.

Right leg: With back of sleeper facing, attach yarn with a sl st in same sc
as crotch, ch 1, sc in next sc and each sc around to front, sc in free lps
of crotch. You should have 32 sc.

Finish leg in same manner as left leg.

Front trim: Using smaller hook, attach yarn with a sl st in bottom of left
front 1 row up, ch 1, sc in ends of rows all the way to neckline, 3 sc in
corner, sc around neckline, 3 sc in corner, sc in end of each row to 1 row
before bottom. Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc around, 3 sc in corners. When going
down left front, after the corner, sc in next sc, ch 4 for button loop, *sc
in next 8 sc, ch 4, rep from * twice more, sc in each sc to end, end off.

Sew buttons opposite buttonholes

Hide all loose ends.

If you want to make this a long-legged sleeper, simply continue sc evenly
around until leg is long enough then sew or crochet bottom seam together.

Same for sleeves, if you want long sleeves, attach yarn at underarm and sc
evenly around until sleeve is long enough.

Abbreviations:

ch----chain
st----stitch
sl st-slip stitch
sc----single crochet
rnd---round
beg---begin(ning)
rep---repeat

It's fixed, I don't know what was up with Blogger. If you still get the pattern to row 7 then try reloading the page.

I'm seeing the whole thing now.

I'm sorry I haven't got back, I thought I put where I got the hat and bootie patterns.

Booties

I know that's the hat pattern, I think that's the bootie pattern, I got them both at CPC, which has tons of bootie/hat patterns.

Hi, Kathy, I was browsing the internet looking for preemie patterns and I came across your link. I felt a connection because I used to live in Clinton, MS. I now live in Lewisburg, TN. I love to crochet and am involved in some charity work.

Is there a picture of the finished sleeper somewhere? I cant find it. Thanks so much! Robin aka proudmama@cableone.net

Donnie said...

I found some #4 Cammo yarn that I would like to use to make this little sleeper. Would I just simply use smaller hook sizes?

DonnieK said...

Guess it would help if you had my ID to reply to. Sorry about that
