Top 7 Free Crochet Baby Patterns | Guest Post

This guest post is a roundup of free crochet baby patterns prepared by Elaine Bennett, editor of the UK-based magazine LGC Knitting & Crochet and the new crochet pattern website Top Crochet Patterns. 

On their new website Top Crochet Patterns,  you can find hundreds of free patterns from their back issues, all created by some of the UK’s top designers.

Top 7 Free Crochet Baby Patterns

There's something so lovely about clothing a newborn baby in something that you have made with love and attention. Plus, little ones look extra adorable in anything woolly!
Here's my round-up of some of my favourite patterns from our brand new website – they're all completely free to download!

Click on the titles below to go to it's pattern page! Enjoy!

1 Sunshine and showers

These cute weather toys and fun little aeroplane make a great hanging decoration for a nursery. There are just a few easy decreases, so it is great for beginners looking to expand their stitchy horizons.

2 Beautiful booties

Inspired by the slouchy shape of sheepskin boots, this adorable duo by Ali Campbell can be crocheted up in an evening or two.

3 Cute as a button

These adorable little shoes by Sarah Hazell use the rather fetching ‘pineapple cluster’ stitch. This technique produces a lovely neat look that is less ‘puffy’ than popcorn or bobble stitches.

4 Bunny love

Lucinda Ganderton's cute crocheted hat and nappy cover set celebrate spring and feature a sweet carrot embellishment and pompom tail.

5 Rattle and roll

Rattles stimulate hand-eye co-ordination and are also a great way of entertaining baby. Christine Harvey’s smiling bunny rabbit is especially easy for teeny tiny hands to grip. If you’re new to crochet, this pattern is a great way to get started.

6 Perfect poncho

Ponchos look incredibly cute on babies and are also really easy to pop over little wriggling limbs. Jackie Carreira’s colourful cape uses six calming colours – have fun choosing your own colour combo.

7 Fly away

Lynne Rowe’s butterfly bib is the perfect gift for expecting parents. Worked in simple double crochet, it’s a great chance to practise your skills.
