Free Baby Knitting Patterns and Ideas

Why not welcome Baby with a gift you've made from one of the free knitting patterns you'll find here. Many of these free knit designs would be great holiday gifts for a baby boy or girl. The Infant's Mini-Cable Sweater set is for a newborn baby boy or girl. It includes a sweater, hat and booties. If you know if the baby is going to be a boy or a girl, you can choose yarn colors accordingly. But if the new baby's gender is going to be a surprise, you can choose a neutral yarn color like yellow, white or cream.

You can use your knitting skills to celebrate the baby's special milestones. A receiving blanket is a must-have, but what about a new blanket to celebrate baby's first fall or winter? Use the Baby Blocks Blanket Pattern in rich jewel tones or bright red and green for Christmas. You can keep the baby warm and create a beautiful backdrop for pictures as the baby develops over the fall and winter months. And what could be more special than making the baby's christening gown from hand. Whether you're having a full baptism or a simple dedication ceremony, a handknit christening gown makes an amazing keepsake and potential heirloom. The Angel Christening Gown Pattern features free instructions for knitting a christening gown and matching cap.
