Tuxedo Baby Top and Short Set
designed by Kim Guzman © Mar. 2014
Technique: Regular Crochet
Be certain to also print your graph for the tank top, in both front and back, in the size you need. The graphs will depict the stripes for the Boricua Tank Top.
When using the graphs for the Tuxedo Baby Set, make the back in one solid color and the front using only the center stripe in white with three rows of red on either side of the white stripe. Alternatively, print the blank graph to make your own unique design. Print the instructions and graphs on the following pages.
Boricua Patriotic Tank Top (sizes 9 months through 18 months)
Boricua Patriotic Infant Shorts (sizes 9 months through 18 months)
Bow Embellishment (below)
Materials for Bow
- Red Heart Luster Sheen (335 yards per 4 ounces): small amount
- Suggested hook size: F (3.75mm)
- Tapestry needle (for weaving ends)
The yarn used in this project (Red Heart Luster Sheen) has been discontinued. I believe Patons Grace would be a good substitute.
3.5″ x 1.25″
Bow Tie is made in two separate pieces.
