10 Adorable Knit and Crochet Baby Patterns for Spring

April 18th, 2012

Pin It

I’m almost positive that this spring of 2012 is baby season.  I personally know a few people who are currently pregnant and a few who just had babies, so I thought I’d share some patterns to get you thinking about yarn-crafting a special hand-made gift for a special little person you may know (or who’s on the way!).

I’ve included knit and crochet patterns made with yarns that are most suitable for warmer weather, from super soft cottons like Nature’s Choice Organic and Baby’s First— to the brightly colored, and easy care of Vanna’s Choice Baby.

For fun, I thought I’d share a photo of mine with you.  This was my first ever baby set that I knit for a friend who had a baby a month ago.  As a beginner knitter, I felt so accomplished, finally being able to hand knit something other than a scarf! This Simply Perfect Baby Set was the first pattern I saw and felt inspired by to use. Unfortunately, I never got around to making the blanket. This was knit using Baby’s First in “Fairy Tale”.

Have you made any baby projects lately, or are you looking forward to starting some now? Share with us!

    I have been furiously knitting and crocheting baby projects for my own baby on the way and many co-workers that are also pregnant.  I’ve made booties, mittens, hats, blankets, a baby dress, a toy bunny, a kimono, and am now working on a vest and coccoon. Six weeks to go until my little one arrives and I’ll be busy up until the last minute!!!

      Thanks for sharing Ambirrgrrl! Those are some lucky babies, hand-made gifts are the best.

    Great gift ideas for the nieces and nephews…

    Handmade knitted ( and crocheted) are the warmest and they can be so unique…I love to knit and most often choose Lionbrand.com for my purchases- many of these yarns are NOT in the retail stores.
