Kids crocheted projects are small and quickly finished; they are an ideal stash-busting project, using only a few balls of yarn, and the diminutive recipients are just old enough to appreciate the thought that goes into a handmade gift. Toddler garments are also the perfect canvas on which to try a new technique such as embroidery on a crocheted fabric or a new stitch pattern.
In this eBook, you will find a collection of 5 free kids patterns, from a darling cardigan to a playful poncho. Use these free patterns to whip up an easy project that is sure to bring a smile to the child in your life.
The Sweetpea Cardigan by Candi Jensen is a sweet cardigan, embellished with embroidered ribbon flowers and a lace trim. The body of this easy cardigan is worked in single crochet, making it a great sweater project for a beginning crocheter. The little princess and the tomboy will both be enchanted by this sweater.
The Stella Cardigan by Robyn Chachula is a great transitional garment, moving from spring to fall with ease. Frog closures add a fun Asian flair and add a pop of color to this unique toddler jacket. Visual crocheters will also find multiple stitch diagrams. This little cardigan is perfect for the girl who is one part mischief and one part sugar and spice.
The Toddler Poncho by Candi Jensen is worked in the round in a soft, warm washable wool. This easy project can be completed in a weekend and makes a fun accessory for tiaras and gowns as well as jeans and dresses. Two large pom-poms accent the easy shell and bobble pattern.
The Seashell and Posies Dress by Elissa Sugishita is worked in a lacy shell pattern from the bottom up. Little girls will adore this toddler dress, which boasts a delicate flower trim at the waist; and you will love the minimal seaming—just two small shoulder seams.
Bring a touch of enchantment into a child’s life with Frog Charming by Toni Rexroat. I was inspired by the story of the frog prince who fetched the princesses's favorite ball after it was lost down a well. This fun crocheted toy is perfect for a little boy or girl, a great project for any crocheter who loves amigurumi.
I hope you enjoy the free kids crochet patterns in the Crochet for Kids eBook and share the joy of crochet with the kids in your life.
