The Best Free Crochet Baby Patterns

I don’t think there is anything more adorable than a baby, except maybe a homemade baby shower gift!  We have found a huge number of free crochet patterns for baby that will help you give the best gift for the new bundle of joy.

(You may even want to make some of these for yourself if you’re lucky enough to be in the expectant parent club!)

This page has a slew of free patterns to crochet baby hats, crochet baby booties, and of course, crochet baby blankets, to name a few. Don't feel intimidated if you aren't a pro at crochet; we have a super beginner crochet page that is sure to be of help!

Crochet Baby Blankets

I know that when I received baby blankets when I had my babies it was a wonderful feeling; however, now that my babies are grown, I’ve found that making and giving a sweet blanket to a new parent is even more wonderful!

We are constantly on the lookout for free crochet baby blanket patterns, and the ones we have for you below are precious.

Be sure to see the bumblebee striped free baby blanket pattern, along with the cute baby zoo afghan with cross-stitched or crocheted zoo animals.

There is also a very unique and colorful free crochet blanket pattern stitched with the Lion Brand Cupcake yarn which automatically adds striping as the project is stitched. Although not exactly a baby blanket, the cute baby cocoon is warm and cuddly too!

There are many more free crochet baby blanket patterns below.

Crochet Baby Hats

There is nothing as sweet as a tiny hat to fit on a baby, and we have found several free crochet baby hats just for you.

Big puffy pom poms create a fun, animal ears look on one of the novelty baby hats. Don’t miss out on the cherry beanie, either! 

From preemie hats to pigtail hats, we have a number of them for you to explore.

Crochet Booties, Socks, and Slippers

My grandmother always needed a picture of the new grand baby’s feet with a credit card or license to show her the size.  She was fascinated with those tiny baby toes.

We found sweet patterns to cover those little feet.  The button shoe with a strap is adorable as can be. Be sure to check out the little loafers, too. 

The crocheted baby socks are very delicate, and who could pass up those vintage-like baby booties?

There Is More!

We’ve added in lovely crochet sweaters and dresses for the little one, along with toys, crib mobiles, and even a crochet nursery storage basket set to keep the baby’s room tidy.

There is something so wonderful and fun about baby things.  Maybe it’s the cuteness of little miniatures. 

Or perhaps it’s because we are reminded of our own babies, especially our babies who aren’t babies anymore!

Whatever the case may be, we know you will be very pleased as you browse the free crochet baby patterns on this page.
