Free Baby Crochet Patterns

A selection of free baby crochet patterns

Crochet is so quick, easy and pretty, you would think it was invented just for babies.

What is it about babies that makes us (females) want to get out our knitting pins and crochet hooks? I think that, other than granny squares, babies are the main reason why many people take up this craft.

babies of course are tiny things and making these miniature garments is good practise for the beginner, and also a delight for those who already know how. It is so easy and quick to produce something beautiful as a gift

Whether you are looking to make gorgeous clothes for your own baby or for a gift for someone elses new arrival, get your hook out and get stitching. You will have these items done in no time. They look good and will be much appreciated.

Most of them are easy to make. if you are a complete beginner, try the crochet scarf first which is simply a straight crocheted strip of fabric with an optional trim.
