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
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!
