All About Baby!

Out of the crochet baby blanket patterns found below, 15 are free and the rest are available for purchase. So whether it’s for a girl, a boy or if the gender reveal party hasn’t taken place, any one of these baby blankets would make a sweet and thoughtful gift.

Take it from me, crochet baby blankets are one of the best gifts to give. My daughter who is now 10 years old, refuses to go to bed without her “dekas”, which in Croatian means blankies. Both of these blankets were gifts made for her when she was born. How sweet is that?
