Strawberry Short Set Crochet Pattern

Strawberry Short Set Crochet Pattern

Summer babies are so much fun…. There’s simply too many adorable summer-y clothes to spoil these fresh warm weather lovers with.  From watermelons, to bugs, to strawberries….dressing baby up in anything summer related is a blast.

When I first started designing, I also did Newborn photography.  So I was constantly exploding with cute ideas for making those very first photos special.  One of my earlier Newborn Photo Prop patterns was this cute Strawberry Shorts Set.

Designed in both crochet and knit, make these summer shorts in red with white “seeds” throughout, and your little strawberry is going to be simply edible….that’s how cute she’ll look!  This design is also fun to make in solid colors as the finished project turns out so versatile that way.

This free crochet baby pattern features bulky (5) yarn and size 5.5mm (I/9) crochet hook.
