1. Crochet sleeper suit

This crochet sleeper set by Abigail Goss of Crotiques is intended for newborn babies up to three-month-old infants.

It’s quick and easy to make and has a simple design which makes it pretty. This is ideal for beginners who want to practice their way into the next level of crocheting baby dresses. The pattern comes with a sweet little hat and bloomers which makes it a complete set. Pattern by Abigail Goss, can be downloaded for free from Ravelry.
