Free Crochet Patterns Toddlers

There are always beautiful crochet patterns for babies, but it can sometimes feel that there are few for toddlers. Toddlers are busy little people, investigating and discovering their world. Their new movement skills mean that they need practical, machine washable clothes and toys, because their ever-inventive experiments are adventurous and can prove rather messy. The many free crochet patterns available on the Internet mean that you can find the perfect pattern to suit your fascinating little individual.

Finding Toddler Crochet Patterns

Crochet Pattern Central (CPC) is a comprehensive crochet-pattern-link directory site with a whole section devoted to toddlers. The Bartlett Car Coat is comfortable warm and practical, with plenty of “growing” room. You could lengthen the Bibbed Shorts into dungarees making the pattern extremely practical for boys or girls in winter or summer. Slip on and Cardigan for Him and Her makes an immensely practical and useful ensemble for toddlers. The ballet Toddler slippers would inspire any budding ballerina.
