Free Crochet Patterns for Baby Gifts

Crocheters enjoy crocheting baby gifts. Whether you are preparing for your own happy event or someone else’s, your hook flies as you crochet love into every stitch. Choosing exactly what to crochet can be difficult, as there are so many items that one could make. It is best to crochet something as special as the baby will be. Thousands of free patterns for baby items are available on the internet. Knowing where to look on the internet, will help you to find a pattern for the perfect gift to welcome that special baby.

Baby blankets or Afghans are always an acceptable gift for any baby. Whether you want to crochet a delicate light afghan, suitable for cot or crib, or a more substantial robust one suitable to use as a play mat, you are sure to find a suitable pattern on the internet. The Crochet Pattern Central directory lists many links to gorgeous free crochet patterns. These include an innovative car seat blanket, the diagonal lace afghan, the kitties and bear Afghans, the Teddy bear blanket buddy and even one that you can personalize especially for the baby.

Baby buntings, cocoons, and sleep sacks are very useful for keeping baby cozy and warm on cold days. The baby Fleece Cloud Cocoon and beanie is adorable to keep baby warm in a Moses basket. The Baby Owl Cocoon set is an amusing way to keep baby cozy.

Babies can never have too many clothes, for, though they are tiny, they make plenty of laundry. Crochet Pattern Central has links to anything anyone could possibly wish to make for a baby, including ensembles and layettes for the adventurous crocheter. Bev’s Country Cottage also has many links to free baby clothing patterns, as does the Lion Brand yarn web site.

Babies need socks, booties and pram shoes to keep tiny feet warm and there are some very beautiful free patterns for these on Crochet Pattern Central and Free Patterns. However, the most delightful patterns are on the site.
