Crochet Baby Cardigan: Size 6 to 12 Months

I figured it out! Using my original newborn sweater design, I problem-solved how to alter the neck foundation, stitch pattern, and hook size to create a cozy cardigan for infants size 6 to 12 months. I used the size charts here to guide me. Now, I just need the right buttons. The design is seamless or top-down like my adult sweaters I make. As per my usual process, the beanie design came to mind before the finishing on the sweater. In fact, I was re-working a sleeve cuff and decided to attempt to make a hat in a matching stitch pattern starting at the crown. The beanie literally flew off my hook and hands so fast, I didn't take the time to take notes. I must force myself to use my Crocheter's Notebook but it is hard when I am in the crochet zone.

I am thinking shell buttons but not sure yet. I used an H hook
with Vanna's Choice in grey marble.
