Free Pattern: Confection Baby Shrug

Photo by Erin.

This baby shrug is the perfect item for the transition to spring! (It’s also great for the indoors air conditioning when it’s 90 degrees outside – keep it in your diaper bag so you’re always prepared!) With no buttons or zippers, dressing your baby is a breeze. Knit top-down, this quick knit has minimal seaming.

Click the button below to see the Confection Baby Shrug on Ravelry, including finished shrugs by other knitters. It’s a great idea for finding yarn substitutes.

    This is the cutest little pattern. I have knitted quite a couple for my granddaughter and for friends. They are so cute and teamed up with a pretty pair of baby jeans, you can go anywhere, anytime. Thank you for this gorgeous little pattern.RachelleSouth Africa
