Baby crochet patterns are very satisfying! For one thing, they're small, so you can exercise your crochet creativity pretty fast. Moms always appreciate crochet for babies—they know that it arrives with extra love. And if your crochet baby sweater or crochet baby hat is too big, just wait a month and it will fit!
Here we give you 6 free crochet baby patterns. These crochet patterns for babies range from crocheted baby dresses for your favorite little fashionista to a stylish crochet nursing cover for mom.
Funky Stuffed Toys by Judith L. Swartz are made up of simple rectangles. They are perfect crochet projects for a big sister or brother to make for the new baby in the house. Even experienced crocheters will have fun adding their own details to this baby crochet pattern.
The Toddler Poncho by Candi Jensen is retro crochet pattern that is just right for hip little girls. Fun pompoms finish off this easy crochet accessory, perfect for a stash-busting crochet project.
The Seashell and Posies Dress by Elissa Sugishita is a classic crochet baby dress. Worked in the round from hem to top, it calls for seaming just at the shoulders. Flowers in a contrasting color highlight the empire waist, while a crochet border defines the hem, neckline and sleeve edges. It's sized from 9 months to 3 years, so you can make matching crocheted dresses for baby and big sister.
The Kathryn in Beauly Dress and Hat by Kathy Merrick, the queen of crochet in color, is a very fun dress and bonnet set with bands of color. The easy-fitting dress closes with a single button at the back neck. The set is finished with a crochet baby hat pattern of a different stripe: It is a bonnet inspired by the Scottish Highlands for which the dress is named.
The Anna Cardigan by Robyn Chachula rounds out baby's garment collection. This textured, easy-to-wear crochet cardigan closes at the neck. Pretty three-dimensional roses are a festive touch around the neckline.
The Mari Nursing Wrap by Robyn Chachula is a great present for both baby and Mom. Mom can use the blanket as a discreet nursing cover, attaching the wrap over her neck with the strap. Then Mari becomes a great blanket for baby. Made in a washable cotton/linen yarn, this nursing cover becomes softer with every wash.
We hope you enjoy these free baby crochet patterns!
