In this post, I’m including over 21 crochet baby blanket patterns that range in difficulty level. You’ll find patterns for girls and boys, as well as gender neutral patterns.
Crochet baby blankets make wonderful gifts for expectant moms. If you have friends or family, who are expecting (or even yourself), considering making a cute baby blanket.
I’ve also included a few snuggle comfort blanket patterns. Snuggle blankets make great security blankets and can be introduced to babies at around three months or older.
