Looking for crochet baby gifts? We have a number of fun patterns for you!

These days it feels like it’s baby season because we keep getting requests for crochet gifts for babies. There’s nothing like giving a handmade crochet gift for a baby shower. It adds a real personalized touch to the gift – and it’s something that the baby can treasure forever. And it’s so much more meaningful than something generic and store-bought.

So we pulled out our yarn and hooks and got started designing. We have started with crochet baby rattles because they are a really quick make – so they are the perfect last minute crochet baby shower gifts (for that shower that you had completely forgotten about until the night before – ooops!). They also they make a great addition to another gift that you are giving – to give your gift a handmade touch. Our rattles have a unique stem made up with a series of balls for a better grip for the baby. Plus, the balls are easier to stuff firmly, to keep your rattle firm.

We thought it would be fun to create rattles to match with the toys from our Juna Series of free amigurumi animal patterns. So most of our rattles (with the exception of Bella the Butterfly) have a cute free amigurumi animal pattern that you can make with them for a crochet baby gift set. To make the toys baby safe, you can crochet eyes onto your toy. You can find our entire collection of amigurumi animals here. They don’t all have rattles but we hope to keep adding to our rattle collection so that they can all be made as crochet baby gift sets.

We plan to keep adding to this collection so keep checking back for more ideas!
