crochet heart bag Crochet Layette Worn By 38 Babies Across Six Decades

Nearly sixty years ago a young man paid $20 to purchase a little yellow crochet layette from a co-worker. The baby outfit went to his aunt for her first child. Since then it has been passed down to 37 other babies in the family. The crochet hat, sweater and booties are still in good shape and are ready to be worn by baby #39!

The First Baby

Allen Brokaw was just a teenager when his aunt Colleen got pregnant with her first child. He had a co-worker who was kind of a mother figure to him and he would watch her crochet at work. He decided to purchase a crochet layette from her as a gift for the new baby. Er entschied sich gelb, weil sie nicht wissen, ob das Baby würde ein Junge oder ein Mädchen sein und Gelb ist die Farbe der Wahl neutral. Das fast 6 £ Baby wurde im Februar geboren 1953 und war der erste, der die kleinen gelben häkeln Outfit tragen.

Der Rest der Familie

Colleen Tante hielt das Baby-Modul und benutzte es für ihr zweites Kind. Dann ihrem dritten. Dann ihrem vierten. Diese vier Kinder waren alle Mädchen. Nach dieser Tante Colleen hatte eine Pause im Geburten aber der kleine Häkeln Outfit nicht ruhen. Es wurde von vier Cousins ​​getragen, bevor er kam zurück zu Tante Colleen, die es für ihre fünfte und letzte Kind verwendet, ein Junge.

Einige besondere Erinnerungen

Die Häkel-Outfit ist nicht von jedem Baby in der Familie getragen. It may have been misplaced for awhile or someone forgot to pass it on. Jedoch, it was worn by a majority of the kids in the family. Some of those memories are really special. Beispielsweise, it was worn by one young boy in the family who passed away at just about one week old. And it was shared between two girls in the family who were born just five days apart.

Keeping Track of the History

How does the family remember all of the history shared between them through this little crochet suit? In addition to passing the stories on to one another through the generations, they have two methods of keeping track. One family member has taken it upon himself to collect photos of all the babies who have worn the crochet outfit. Plus there is a piece of cardboard that is passed along with the crochet layette where each baby’s name, weight and DOB information is recorded by hand.

So special! Do you have any heirloom crochet pieces in your family?
