Looking for a baby crochet pattern that's not only cute but very practical? I hope you'll find it here. Remember that the best way to create something for a baby or young child is to remember your
childhood. Just play and be creative. You will be amazed by the
results. When you crochet for a baby or kid, don't forget to smile.
This stitch is created by a two row repeat, starting with a foundation chain of multiples of 3. The possibilities are endless. Start with a number 4 yarn made of 100% cotton and create coasters, dish cloths, face cloths, or placemats.
Turn your creation into a soft washable blanket with a 100% Acrylic number 4 yarn, or create a fast baby blanket using a soft chunky yarn.
You might not be that experienced crocheter, but crocheting is a very forgiven and there is so much flexibility that you can take advantage of. Relax and don't be afraid to be creative.
On this page I started a small collection of crochet patterns for kids. They are very easy to crochet.
To make each baby pattern listed in the table, I used either basics crochet stitches and techniques or the cutout fabric motifs.
You will find more baby patterns added as I build this site.
Make a pattern "as is" and decorate any element of the existing baby garment: front side of a sweater, pocket, sleeve, and etc.
A complete description of these designs can be found on the Baby Coverall page. Here are some possible small projects.
Using single crochet make a basic flat circle 8-10 cm in diameter. For the last two rows use a loop pattern from the Crochet Scarf Page. Crochet one more row around making the chains for ears. Single crochet around the chains for ears and between them.
Embroidery the face to finish your work. If it is meant to be a toy, embroider the eyes but if it is to be used as a wall hanging, a sew on pair of craft eyes can be substituted.
Use single or double crochet, to make strips. Place the cutout fabric motifs, embroidery the face. Complete description and pattern can be found at Crochet Baby Coverall page
Make a basic flat circle 8 - 10 cm in diameter. Use single or double crochet to make a basic flat circle. Each ear is 7-stitch wide at its base. Every next row is 2 stitches shorter. Crochet each ear around to make a smooth edge. Embroidery the face to complete the work.
This pattern has its own personal touch. My friend came to me and told the story. Her daughter was extremely upset when somebody called her very cute 6 months old girl, “cute baby boy.” This poor infant girl had not developed sufficient hair yet, so she was often mistaken for a boy.
A common occurrence.
To console this young mommy and to avoid "shame", we've decided to crochet a head band wrap with rose for a girl. It took us 1 hour to crochet it with approximately 20 grams of yarn to make everyone happy. This was long before head bands became popular for infant girls.
