Super-Simple Crochet Newborn Pull-over

This newborn pull-over is made from two identical pieces (front & back) shaped like "T" and sewn together. It has a "boat neck."

Approximately 4 oz. worsted weight yarn
Size J crochet hook

Chain 62.
Row 1 : DC into 3rd chain from hook and into all other chains (60 DC's).
Rows 2 - 6 : Chain 3, turn. DC into every DC across (60 DC's).This makes the top of the sweater (neck & arms)
Row 7 : DO NOT CHAIN 3. Slip stitch into first 19 DC's. DC into the next 22 DC's then stop (leaving 19 more undone DC's on the other side). Chain 3, turn. (22 DC's)
Rows 8 - 19 : DC into each DC. Chain 3, turn. (22 DC's). Bind off at the end of row 19.

Make two identical pieces following the above pattern. These are the front and back. Sew up the side & under-arm seam with a whip stitch or slip stitch. Sew up the upper arm / neck seam on either side, LEAVING A 7" HOLE IN THE CENTER FOR THE NECK HOLE. Finish by edging the neck, sleeves, and bottom edge with your favorite decorative stitch. The one pictured is edged with a ruffle madde by Chain 3, slip stitch into each DC.
