5 fabulous free baby patterns!
Baby crochet is great fun! It’s a wonderful way to learn a new technique whilst making something delicious for a little one! Merion has found you five fabulous free patterns to enjoy!
Crocheting garments in miniature is wonderful – you don’t have a huge expense in yarn, and you can combine all kinds of gorgeous techniques to try in a small swatch before you use them in a bigger project. The Paintbox Yarns cardi above has a gentle scooped yoke neckline and some bobbles to add texture – great fun to crochet, and the pattern comes in sizes from newborn to 18 months. It’s a gorgeous summer accessory in Paintbox Cotton DK, but you could just as easily make it up in your favourite wool or acrylic DK for the autumn and winter as a sweet layer!
Tam-0-shantas are great shaped hats for babies – they’ve got a lovely wide rim and rib, and they are roomy enough to cope with hair, hair clips and ears! Use your favourite DK yarn for this beauty!
Viola Rabbit is crocheted in DK yarn (use a cotton DK or your favourite wool or acrylic yarn), with a baby-safe embroidered face, and a sweet little dress to wear! You can customise the dress any way you like, make it stripey, add embroidery or even make a few dresses in different colours for a whole wardrobe of fun!
We love this gorgeous colour combination from HappyBerry Crochet! The loop stitch is great fun to learn, and it looks beautiful in this ombré from purples to peach! It’s worked up in Paintbox Yarns Simply DK – you’ll only need five balls for this blanket!
Crochet booties are always fun to make – and these were designed by Olivia Kent from the Hopeful Honey blog especially to celebrate Princess Charlotte’s birth! You can use any cotton DK yarn here – these are made in King Cole Cottonsoft DK for extra toe-snuggliness!
