The first step in locating free crochet baby blanket patterns is by searching the internet.  I love to look at all the photos of baby blankets first to see which ones really catch my eye.  I will print out all the ones I love the most and would love to make.  I keep them all in a file so when I want to make a baby blanket they are right there waiting for me.  You could be lost for hours searching all the free crochet baby blanket patterns because there is just so many of them.  You can either save each pattern that you like in your favorites under a file folder called free crochet baby blanket patterns or you can print each one out that you like.


You can also find free crochet baby blanket patterns at your local library.  Many libraries have crochet magazines that you are allowed to check out.  When you have them at home, just copy all the patterns you really like and keep them in your file.  Your library may even be able to make copies for you if you are unable to make the copies at your own home.  If your library doesn't have crochet magazines see if they can get some in.  If there is a large enough interest most libraries will start ordering them.

This can be so much fun to participate in. I have been in quite a few over the past 20 years and I have many 3 ring binders full of these wonderful free crochet baby blanket patterns.

A great way I have found to keep your entire free crochet baby blanket patterns safe and very well organized is to go out and buy a two inch three ring binder and some clear sleeves that you can insert the patterns into. Then you can put two of your free crochet baby blanket patterns into one sleeve, one for the front one for the back.

You want to be sure you have the right size crochet hook and then you want to be sure that you purchase all the yarn you will need to finish the project. You always want to buy everything you need to finish the project so you don't need to run out and buy something to finish it because they may be out of the yarn you need and then what are you going to do?

I have a certain place in my house to keep all my crochet things. This will make it easier to see what all you have and what all you need to go out and buy.
