Free Patterns: Crochet Baby Gifts

You’ll find me knitting (or day dreaming about knitting) just about every day of the year, but occasionally crochet projects lure me in, especially when I want to work something up quickly! Baby gifts are my go-to projects for crochet, and I’ve hunted down some of my favorite classy, free baby crochet patterns to keep in my arsenal for a rainy crochet day. 

Single Crochet Cap, by Purl Soho

Purl Soho provides us with a simple beanie pattern that lets a luxurious yarn shine. I like how versatile this piece is. I’m going to keep a few on hand for quick gifting purposes.

Square to Wear, by Amanda Tipton

A stylish approach to the granny square, turning it into a breezy / boxy (aka so trendy right now!) sweater for the little ones. 

Cozy Hoodie, from Yarnspirations Design Studio

This hoodie pattern takes a little more time than the others I selected, but I especially love the pom on the hood & the adorable pockets. This pattern would make a good hand-me-down, too! 

Easy V-Neck Vest, by Sharon Mann

 A sophisticated crocheted vest for all the dapper young gentlemen. Great to wear through multiple seasons.

The Parker Baby Booties, by Ashleigh Kiser 

Everyone makes a pair of baby booties sooner or later in their prestigious fiber arts career. Pair this pattern with a soft, hand dyed yarn and keep all of the baby feet warm in style.

Aspen Socialite Headband / Earwarmer, by Jess Coppom

I couldn’t resist being inspired by the beautiful wooden button and natural yarn selection for this pattern. A headband is a classic baby accessory and a great gift for a new mom.
