Esther's Baby Carrier-- Free Crochet Pattern

>> Thursday, April 2, 2009


Esther's Baby Carrier

Please note: Esther is a very petite lady. This was made specifically for her. If you are more endowed (like I am) this will probably not fit you. I may make modifications for a larger size in the future.

Needed:
Size N Crochet hook
Size G crochet hook
Size J crochet hook
6-8 skeins of “City Lights” Ribbon Yarn (available at my Local Dollar Tree)

Please note: you will be switching back and forth between hooks during almost EACH row. The shoulder strap is made using the G hook, the carrier part is made using the N hook. The pouch is made in continuous rounds-- it's better for me as a mother to know there are no rings or anything that can “slip out.” The J hook will be used to go around the edge of the pouch at the end to “gather” the pouch up so it will hold baby better.

With N hook, CH 65, With G hook, Ch 45 (110 chs in all), join to form ring try not to twist the chain.
Row 1: with N hk 65 DC, with G hk, 45 SC. Do not join. Work in continous rounds. (110)
Row 2-12: Repeat Row 1
Row 13: With N hk, HDC 2,DC 61, HDC 2, ch 2 and TURN(65)
Row 14-36: Repeat Row 13
Row 37: down side of rows 14-36 evenly space 6 Sl st until you reach the SCs of row 12, With G hk, 45 SC, up the sides of rows 14-36 evenly space 6 Sl st with N hook until you reach the DCs of Row 36, 65 DC (122)
Row 38: Working in continuous rounds again DC2tog 3x along sl sts of previous row, With G hk, 45 SC, DC2tog 3x along sl sts of previous row, with N hk 65 DC (116)
Row 39: DC 3 Tog 1x along sl sts of previous row, With G hk, 45 SC, DC3tog 1x along sl sts of previous row, with N hk 65 DC (112)
Row 40: with N hk 67 DC, with G hk, 45 SC. Do not join. Work in continuous rounds. (112)
Row 41-52: Repeat row 40
Row 53: With J hook, *2 SC, CH 1* Repeat around. Finish off. Tie KNOT in yarn, pushing knot as close to the last stitch as possible. Weave in ends (178)
Row 54: Attach yarns with a KNOT not a sl st to opposite edge of carrier, pull a loop up though edge stitches of carrier. Repeat Row 53, finishing off in the same manner.
