Precious Newborn Romper Crochet Pattern

precious romper crochet pattern

There is nothing sweeter than sleeping babies and I adore the popular trend that photographers are capturing this precious moment. The only thing that can make these babies cuter is a delicate romper. The Precious Newborn Romper has the beautiful texture of a lacey mohair that adds to the snugglyness of this shoot.

The popular rompers are very difficult to find in a crochet pattern. I designed a Classic Romper at the beginning of the year and it was such a success I decided to design a one in a lacy look and now I get to share the Precious Newborn Romper pattern with all of you.

The romper is designed as a photo prop for newborns up to about 2 weeks old and will fits a newborn between 6-12 pounds (newborns in the sample photos are 6 & 8 pounds).

The pattern was made using Knit Picks Aloft yarn. However, any lacey mohair yarn will work up if you check and match the gauge. The Precious Newborn Romper is made with less than 1 skein of yarn.

Classic Newborn Footed Romper – Crochet Pattern


When I started designing patterns back in 2011, I focused most of my designs on newborn photo props. I was in the midst of having and raising my babies, so I just couldn’t get enough of the newborn cuteness.

After nearly 8 years, my designs have evolved and I design a huge variety of items. But, I always enjoy going back to homebase. So, I am excited to share my first design of this year, 2019, with you all today. I hope you love the Classic Newborn Footed Romper.

Check out how beautiful the stitching is! The ribbing look also creates a lot of stretch to the Classic Newborn Footed Romper allowing for it to stretch in length and in width. The design is for newborns but can fit a variety of weighs up to about 12 pounds (the darling baby in the photo was 10 lbs).

The Classic Newborn Footed Romper is made with Patons Lace (which is listed as a #2 Fine Weight yarn). However, my testers made their rompers with other weights like: Premier Yarns Alpaca Dance (#4 weight), Stylecraft Special DK weight and Bernat Softee Baby (#3 weight). Just make sure you check your gauge and adjust your hook to meet the correct gauge before you begin to ensure the romper comes out the right size.

Wake up and see this lovely newborn Reversible Swaddle Pod photo prop!
 
 
The reversible swaddle pod is a fun new prop for your stash, plus it is like getting 2 props in one. One side features a beautiful raised ridge look (see image above and below). Simply turn it inside out and you have a knit look (see lower image in blog post). The reversible swaddle pod works up quickly and has a lot of stretch to get those babies nestled nice and comfy.
 

Two Different Looks to the Reversible Swaddle Pod

Take a peak at the images below, they are the same swaddle pods, just turned inside out. One side has a unique stitch look to it, almost resembling knit. The second side has a ribbed look. Each one is unique in their own way. 
 
 

I love when you can utilize one pattern but it allows you to capture two different looks with it. This is a great addition to your photo prop stash for those newborns.

Cable Bucket Wrap Free Crochet Pattern

  • Post author:
  • Reading time:10 mins read

Newborn photos are a family keepsake. Photographers who specialize in capturing this precious time in a newborns life are beyond talented. They rely on trending photo props and soft textures are so appealing and trendy right now. My latest crochet pattern, the cabled bucket wrap, has all those features.

The bucket wrap is designed to simply tie around a bucket. No need for the photographer to search high and low for the perfect side of bucket to nestle the baby in. Instead wrap it around your favorite one for a whole new look.

Cable Bucket Wrap

Making the Cable Bucket Wrap

The luxurious cables intertwine using a super bulky yarn, so it works up quick and creates the rich texture in no time at all. The wrap is made as a flat wrap that ties around the bucket allowing flexibility in used. The bucket in the image shown above is about 9″ tall and 11″ across the top opening.

Materials needed to make the Cable Bucket Wrap:

  • Crochet Hook size P (10 mm)
  • Super Bulky Weight Yarn ~ about 185 yards  / Sample was made using Lion Brand in Houston Cream
  • Scissors
  • X-Large Yarn Needle or smaller crochet hook to weave in ends

Stitches & Abbreviations Used in the Pattern

  • Ch = Chain
  • Hdc = Half Double Crochet
  • Dc = Double Crochet
  • Tc = Treble Crochet
  • FP = Front Post
  • BP = Back Post
Cable Bucket Wrap

Size Gauge:

  • Please check gauge for appropriate sizing, change hook to correct size to obtain gauge.
  • With Hook P: 5 rows with 8 hdc = 4 ½” wide X 4” tall

Finished Cable Bucket Wrap Size:

Bucket Wrap will be 9” tall and 33” long (made to fit a 9” tall X 11” across bucket)

Pattern Notes:

  • The wrap is made to fit most buckets. It’s tie in the back allows it to fit buckets that may vary slightly in size or be larger on the top or bottom.
  • The beginning chain always counts as a stitch.
  • Due to the nature of crocheting cables, each stitch needs to be a different length to result in an even row. Rows will have a combination of dc & tc stitches.

The Cable Bucket Wrap PATTERN

The pattern for the Cable Bucket Wrap is below. I looks long, but I broke it down in step by step bullet points. Be patient, it is easier than it looks.
