Hello crocheters
I am trying to make a sweater for my grandson to be born in August.I would like to make it small enough that he can wear it home from the hospital.The patterns I have are too big. Is there a formular or process I can follow to mke it 0-3mos size.
Or does anyone have a pattern,for a boy's sweater i can follow
Thank you for your time and attention

" Just My Idea "
Use a smaller Hook and a very thin Yarn.
Make a swatch to see how you like it .

I do this to make some of the items I make smaller.
