Crochet Baby Romper Design

This cute baby romper is crocheted sideways. So, you will be working from the neckline down towards the waist.

Firstly, I used my favorite stitch half double crochet worked through the third loop only aka camel stitch.

I think this stitch gives it a great knit-look texture and makes it a modern and timeless addition to the baby’s wardrobe.

The finished fabric also has a lot of stretch and therefore makes for a super comfortable baby romper that will not restrict those precious first movements.

Secondly, the way it is constructed makes it real easy to adjust the size too. If you need to make it a little more wide, you can easily add a few rows to the middle section.

You can also add a few stitches to the starting chain if you need the romper to be longer in the body. Then simply follow the pattern for shaping the leg opening on either side of the romper.

Yarn I Used

For this cute romper I used Scheepjes Merino Soft. I simply love this yarn and especially for baby makes.

It is so soft and gentle that I will happily use it for items that are going to be very close to baby’s skin.

It is a combination of Merino wool (this is the softest wool there is), micorfiber and acrylic. This is the perfect balance of fibres that create super soft yarn that is also lovely to work with.

The combination of these fibres guarantees a silky ‘look and feel’.

It is the perfect yarn choice for creating stylishly soft and cosy garments like sweaters, cardigans and shawls as well as baby items like rompers and blankets.

The yarn is also washable up to 30 degrees and comes in over 50 colors so you will be spoilt for choice.

And what I absolutely love about this yarn is that it is a centre-pull ball. There is no crazy rolling around the floor picking up dust while you work with it.

It also has an “easy-start” sticker on the centre pull strand of yarn.

Finishing Instructions

Fasten off.

Line up the two panels together with WS facing out.

Crochet or sew together on the WS down the sides only sewing or crocheting across the hdc sts, the sc ribbing stays open and forms part of the arm opening.

Line up the bottom part and sew together across the rows between the stitch markers. This will form the bottom part of the romper that sits in between the legs.

Crochet Romper Straps

Working on the back panel with RS facing, mark out 5 rows of the sc ribbing on both ends. You will be working around the end sc sts of each row at right angle.

Attach yarn around end st on the right hand side on the edge.
