7 Free Baby Patterns

Free Crochet Baby Patterns


Baby crochet patterns are so satisfying! Who can resist those tiny garments and crocheted accessories? Moms always appreciate handmade gifts, tailored specifically for their newest addition, and these little projects provide opportunities to experiment with a new stitch or construction technique. Plus these quick and easy items make great stash busters-or perhaps a chance to indulge baby in a bit of luxury yarn!

In this collection you'll find 7 free crochet baby patterns from colorful toys to darling dresses.  Whip up a quick gift or something for your own new arrival.

Constructed of simple striped rectangles, Funky Stuffed Toys by Judith L. Swartz combines bright colors and simple stitches to create a cuddly amigurumi. Create a cat or dog from the pattern provided or use the basic body instructions to design your own crocheted toy, adding whipstitch detailing for that handcrafted touch.

Molly's Mukluks by Toni Rexroat are designed to keep the wee one's feet warm in style. The tall shaft of the boot ensures these fashion-forward booties will stay on while the buttons make them easy to put on and take off.  

Inspired by her namesake niece, the Kathryn in Beauly Dress and Hat by Kathy Merrick, will transport you to the Highlands of Beauly, Scotland. The top down-construction, beginning with the striped yoke, minimizes seaming. And the matching bonnet can be worn with the striped edge flat or folded back.

The versatile Anna Cardigan by Robyn Chachula looks great with everything from mini-jeans to a frilly dress, making it perfect for any occasion. And the three-dimensional flower embellishments on this light-weight crocheted baby cardigan will make your little petunia look right in fashion this Spring.

The Mari Nursing Wrap by Robyn Chachula allows mom to nurse in elegant privacy. A granny square border frames a curtain of linked stitches, which provides excellent coverage, and the cotton/linen blend yarn becomes softer each time it is laundered. For convenience, the wrap can be hooked over Mom's neck with the attached strap for feeding, or draped over a stroller to shield sleeping baby from the elements.

The Berry Baby Hat and Booties by Chloe Nightingale make great quick-crochet gifts. The hat is worked in single crochet and sized from preemie to adult, for grown-ups who enjoy embracing their inner whimsy. The booties are worked from the toe-up and the heel is shaped with deceptive ease, making these crocheted booties perfect for first-time footwear makers.

The Summer Blues Baby Dress by Ellen K. Gormley is an adorable girlie dress without being fussy. Stitches of differing height provide comfortable stretch through the skirt and minimal seaming makes this quick to crochet. This project will be a favorite both for the crocheter and the wearer.

Hope you enjoy crocheting for the babies in your life!

Best wishes,

My mother either crochet or knitted baby booties for me (which I can't find right now), they were, from what I remember, a base sole ad up over the ankles. However, the part that went around the ankles, were all made in 'loops' .  Mom told me she used a pencil to get the loops uniformed.  I have been looking on/off for years for this pattern.  I was born in1953, so, if it was a pattern, it had to be from the late 1940s - 1953 when she made them for me.

Any takers on the challenge of finding this pattern?

thank you

Hi Bindoooo. The chain 34 and Row 1 refer only to the gauge swatch. When you begin the yoke you have already worked this section of the stitch pattern with your chain and Row 1. So when working Row 2 of the cardigan, work Row 2 of the vsp.

Can someone help me with the pattern directions for Kathryn in Beauly Dress?  Which age does "Sizes 41 3/4" (44")" after Row 5 refer to?  I can't find these measurements on the schematic.
