Jasmine Baby Shirt Crochet Pattern

Spring is on its way, and I’m getting in the mood with this cute new baby shirt pattern. It features jasmine stitch detailing on the bottom hem, a lower back, and straps with three buttonholes for a customized fit (not to mention ease of dressing your baby!) It comes in three sizes – 3 month, 6 month, and 12 month.

You may have heard me say that I try to only buy yarn if I have a specific project in mind for it. This prevents me from stashing waaaaay too much yarn! Well, this shirt pattern was really born out of my need to find a project for this super soft Drifter DK yarn from King Cole yarns. I picked it up, and I knew I had to have it. I also knew that I needed a project to go with it or I couldn’t justify the purchase. So I stood in the middle of my local yarn store and held the yarn until I thought of a project, despite two tiny humans trying to drag me away because it was “time to go”.

As it turns out, this shirt wasn’t the project I thought of then. My original idea was a little baby romper, which I may still make with the second ball of Drifter DK I picked up a week later (… oops). I thought it’d be cute to have a little romper with a row of Jasmine Stitch in the middle. So I started with the jasmine, and then worked my way up. It turns out I like it so much as a shirt, I didn’t feel the need to add a bottom to it. 🙂

As a mom of four kids, I totally understand how important it is to be able to take baby clothes off without going over their head… things can get messy! So I made the straps with buttonholes so they can be unhooked and the shirt can be slid off either up or down, depending on your need ;).

I hope you love it as much as I do! And if you have the chance, check out this soft Drifter DK yarn, even if you don’t use it for this project. It’s an acrylic/cotton blend with just a touch of wool. It is seriously soft and cushy. Of course, the shirt looks great with other yarns, too, as proven by my pattern testers. 🙂 If you want to get ahold of this pattern, click the link below to go to the product page.
