Crochet Easy Alpine Stitch Baby Cardigan (6-12 months)

This cardigan haves 3d effects. You can adapt it every size easily. It’s very favorite stitch for both boys and girls. I must admit I thought I would do it for myself.

You can try many color combinations. You can add difference by making the whole body a color and making the last rows a different color.
