Were you intrigued by our review of Modern Baby Crochet in the Crochet More Issue? If you’re in the market for a cute baby gift, this book has you covered! Whether you’re going to a baby shower or getting a head start on your holiday crafting, there is a project here for every crocheter.
I love how the projects in this book are contemporary, bright, and fun, so they’ll give any nursery a cheerful and current vibe. I have my eye on the Funky Argyle Afghan, and I think it would look phenomenal in green and tan with pink stripes. I have a new little niece to craft for, and this design will be perfect for the decor in her room! The Bubble Ring Rattles are adorable as well, and I can’t wait to watch her play with these handmade toys.
If you’re looking for more patterns for baby, check out the Teensy Turtle Baby Set from the Fall 2014 Issue of Love of Crochet. Including a blanket, hat, diaper cover, and even a cape for photographs, this darling set would make a great gift.
If you’re in a hurry, the Bear Necessity Hat from the Holiday Crochet Issue can be whipped up in no time. Use scrap yarn to make the eyes, nose, and mouth, and this pattern also becomes a terrific stash-buster!
Finally, who doesn’t love pandas? Crochet the Panda Party Set from the same issue, and your new arrival will have a cozy hat and pair of pants to wear when the weather gets chilly. The blanket, toy, and beanbag will provide comfort and joy for many years, so this gift will grow with your little one and be enjoyed for a long time.
