Crocheting baby sweaters is a popular gift for new moms. It can be tricky to find crochet patterns for a more modern style because so have a vintage vibe. Why do we enjoy modern style so much? Modern style has a more lean and streamlined look and a simplistic look to it, making modern baby sweaters so appealing.
Pair a modern sweater with the preciousness of a newborn baby and you will want to swoon. I have rounded up some of my favorite baby sweater patterns that you will enjoy making. The difficult part will be deciding which pattern you will want to settle on making.
These modern baby sweater crochet patterns are the cutest on the market today. Many come in multiple sizes so you will want to make sure to check all the individual listings (one of them is even a Mommy & Me set). Many of the designs can be made for either a boy or a girl, just switch up the colors and it can work perfect for your needs.

Want a baby sweater that says dignified? Well, here it is! I actually adore the look of the turned color and rich textured stitches that comb the front of this sweater. I wish they had it in sizes large enough for the more distinguished of gentlemen 😉
Crochet baby cardigan
I know a cardigan is different than a sweater, but this is too cute not to include. A simple design but then the added textured stitch work on the bodice makes this a perfect layering piece any momma will love to put on their baby.
Waves and Bobble Sweater
This Sweater is simply stunning! I would make one in my size if it were included. The elegant stitches in this sweater make it a lovely sweater for your baby in the spring or fall with it's open stitch work and shorter sleeves. This pattern comes in sizes from baby up to 10 years old.
This lovely sweater also features a trendy stitch work but features a streamlined design. Make this sweater in any color or use an ombre yarn for a more showy look.
Kimonos are a great piece for traveling or for those newborns that are a little more tricky to dress. A simple wrapped style for easy dress would make this a fun take home sweater.
Mini Through the Mountains Pullover Mommy & Me Set
Many modern designs are solid colors or have very streamlined and simple color changes. But, this Mini Through the Mountains Sweater is something I would totally make for myself. I love the bold angles yet simplicity in it's stitches, it's a great combination of different styles merging together.
This sweater is a little more of a vintage style but the design was so unique that I had to include it. Plus I adore the textures at the neckline that create an interesting look that I love.
Modern Baby Cabled Cardigan
When my boys were babies I loved to dress them in "old man" clothes. They never looked cuter and when I saw these darling Cabled Cardigans I fell in love with them and want to make them for my grown boys now <3 I just want to see a little handsome newborn boy sporting one of these cardigans!
The Confetti Pull Over
A classic pullover is always a great style of baby sweater to make. I adore the yarn used in this sweater, it makes a simple stitch work look so detailed as the colors intertwine with one another.
I seriously would wear this!!! What a fun and spunky crochet sweater pattern, the bobbles speak volumes and really make this sweater design jump to the next level.
Somedays just call for a nice and warm sweater. No frills! This is the one just for those days. Made in a thicker yarn, I bet this sweater will work up fairly quick and isn't he just too cute in it?

The modern look in this sweater are simply fantastic. The clean and simple top with a button up collar really make the look spectacular. Then add the basket weave along the bodice for a little added texture to make the design really stand out.

Another traditionally made sweater but with the most ideal texture. The striping that is created within the stitches is remarkable. Add the buttons at the neckline and it is a wonderful baby sweater.
