8 Adorable Free Baby Patterns
As any crafter knows, the first thought that enters our heads when someone announces that they’re expecting is all the cute things we can crochet for the new arrival. Here you’ll find eight adorable free baby patterns to try, from tiny mitts for newborns to a lovely poncho. Simply click on each picture to be taken through to the pattern!
Not only do ponchos look incredibly cute, they’re also easy to pop over the wriggling limbs of a little baby. Try playing with different colour combinations to give yours an alternative look!
2 So cosy
Inspired by the slouchy shape of sheepskin boots, these can be crocheted up in an evening or two. We have included two sizes; one for newborns and the other for babies aged three to six months.
3 Very bunny
This crochet hat and nappy cover set feature a sweet carrot embellishment and adorable pom-pom tail.
These sweet little shoes will ensure baby’s feet keep cosy while looking sweet and stylish at the same time. You’ll learn how to work ‘pineapple cluster’ stitch which produces a lovely neat look that is less ‘puffy’ than popcorn or bobble stitches.
These fresh colour combinations are great for baby boys or girls alike. Worked in simple double crochet, it’s a great chance to practise your skills and create a durable textured finish that will survive the messiest of meals.
If you’re waiting to welcome a new arrival into the world, it will take almost no time to whip up this sweet pair of gloves.
This fancy footwear is worked in the round, meaning the only seam to sew up is the one on the base of the sole. We’ve included a pretty flower embellishment too, to finish off the look.
