In this post, I’m including over 30 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), consider 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.
