Crochet is great for a lot of different types of clothing, but I personally think crochet baby sweater patterns are among the sweetest. My favorite are crochet baby sweater patterns that come with matching baby hats. This is such an incredibly cute look. Knowing that this gift is something that you made with your own two hands will mean a lot to the parents, too.

The Internet is an easy place to find crochet patterns of all kinds, including crochet baby sweater patterns. The patterns are so versatile, too! Look for patterns for hooded sweaters, cardigans, and so on. If the pattern is one which is going to take a lot of time to make, it might be smart to stick with a cardigan, or sweater jacket. These will fit the baby longer. That way, he or she won't grow out of your sweater the minute it's finished!

Crochet Baby Sweater Patterns and Other Baby Gifts

You can crochet other items for a baby, as well. I think a crocheted tissue holder makes a great gift. It will last longer than a sweater, and is still festive, adorable, and personal. You can crochet a diaper bag for baby's mom, or a pillow with baby's initials on it.

Personally, I think that's the great thing about crochet--it is incredibly versatile. You can crochet just about anything, from bookmarks to teddy bears to baby sweaters. This is a great craft to learn if you love knitting, as well. The technique is obviously different, but the feeling of meditative pleasure is very much the same.
