Hexagon Baby Sweater

I finished one today. After the harrowing trip to the dentist I just kind of vegged out today. I saw one of these on someone's blog, then saw another one someone else had done on Crochetville, who posted the link where she found it on You Tube. (It is in Portugese.) So you see how hard it was to "get" this pattern. :P The visual was very good though. And it helped that she counted the stitches (I don't know Portuges or Spanish, but I know how to count to ten in Spanish~thank you Sesame Street!) So after watching and listening and rewinding the videos, I got the basic gist of it. I wrote it up on my pattern blog. (Even though it isn't MY pattern, just for somewhere to put it...) I want to make up a little hat and some booties if I can find some. I think this is approximately a 6-9 months size. The sleeves are more six month but the chest measurement was a 24 month. So I pulled the front edge over a bit with snaps (I hadn't sewn them on yet when I took this picture.). Anyway. I will definitely be making more of these, it was so fun. Isn't it neat how crochet is universal? It doesn't matter what language you speak.

Thank you, Tam. I was so happy I could figure it out from the videos. I guess crochet is a universal language. :P

Oooh! That is pretty cool. I wonder how easy it would be to convert / use the idea for an adult-sized cardigan?

Hi Kelle!
I was wondering that, too. I was going to try using a bigger hook and ww yarn. See how that turns out. :)
