Two Tone Sweater Set Crochet Pattern - PDF

The Two Tone Sweater was, and still is, one of my most popular free patterns, but I had only written it for a 3 month size; and just the sweater itself. So, I decided it would be great to turn into a full set like all my other sweater set patterns. I've included a hat, booties, and sizes 3, 6, 12, and 18 months.

This set is perfect for both boys and girls! I have made this in so many color combinations for both genders, and I also love making these sets with variegated yarn too. I feel many sets made with variegated yarn can be distracting, but not with this set. It really helps that yarn to pop.

One of the reasons I love this set is that it is so easy to applique, which makes the whole set so unique! The simple design allows the applique to stand out. I have made it with sports themes, butterflies, cars, animals, and more. The set can also be made into a simple open cardigan by just placing the one button hole right at the top.

You can have so much fun with this simple set! I would love to see your sets and what you have come up with too!
