Crocheting for Baby

Mar 1, 2012

I am always excited when friends or relatives announce a new addition to their family. I love the exhilaration in their voices and the glow in their faces. I feel my own thrill of anticipation as I contemplate the perfect crocheted baby gift. There are so many options: booties, bibs, sweaters, or an adorable amigurumi. Here are a few of my favorites from Robyn Chachula's Baby Blueprint Crochet

 
Crochet Baby Bib Every new parent will appreciate a fashionable and functional bib and burp cloth. The single crochet spike and woven stitch patterns create a wonderfully soft and thick fabric, gentle against a baby's delicate skin. Brightly colored DK cotton makes this bib a trendy accessory. Options for a lacy or a fun striped neck strap make this pattern perfect for boys or girls. 
 
Crochet Diaper Cover-up If the new parents are eco-conscious and planning on using cloth diapers, the Greenie Diaper Cover is the perfect gift. Worked in superwash wool in a stitch pattern with wonderful stretch, this adorable cover-up can be worked in custom colors. It's great over disposable diapers as well. 
 
Crochet Baby Vest Small baby garments are also a wonderful way to learn a new technique. Worked in traditional pinks or blues, the Hank Vest is perfect for a little girl or boy, or let your creativity choose a fun new color palette. The worsted-weight yarn and extended single crochet make this a quick garment, and parents will love how easy this zippered vest is to slip on and off. The petite size of this garment makes it the perfect project to learn how to install a zipper. 
 
Crochet Baby Pullover

The Hunter Pullover is a great way to learn crochet colorwork. You can work the traditional snowflake pattern designed by Robyn or create your own pattern to use in its place. This warm pullover closes at the neckline with three buttons, making it easy to pull over a baby's head.
