Are you ready for a bit of a babygeddon? 😂 Spring always seems to be a popular time for new babies, so I thought I would share some of my favourite quick crochet baby makes over the next few weeks. I’m also going to be sharing some mum-friendly makes. I know from personal experience how wonderful handmade baby gifts are, so no matter what your crochet experience is, there will be a pattern for you in these collections. Even if you’re a brand new hooker, you’ll be able to make one or two of these simple and quick baby crochet patterns.


Let’s start with the classics. A crochet baby blanket is often the go-to pattern when you’re looking for a gift for a new baby. I have a pair of easy-to-make, pretty blankets that look beautiful no matter what colour scheme you choose:

While baby blankets have traditionally been made in soft shades of pink and blue, modern society is switching away from gendered coloured schemes. If you’re looking to create a thoughtful and loving gift for a modern mum, a gender neutral baby blanket is often the best way forward. This doesn’t mean shying away from traditional colours completely, just delivering them in a fresh new way. Why not try one of the colour schemes below, if you need a little help?

Moving on from blankets, another traditional new baby gift is accessories. I have a couple of patterns that are fast, fun and SO simple to make. No matter whether you’re new to the hook or a seasoned pro these patterns are perfect.

For a modern twist, use bright variations of classic baby colours like coral, turquoise and saffron.

Crochet toys are the ULTIMATE in quick crochet baby makes. From stuffies and loveys to rattles and rings…I’ve got you covered. I have such a HUGE collection of crochet baby toys on Bella Coco that it would be impossible to feature them all in this blog post. If you’re looking for a cute toy and aren’t taken with any of the featured patterns, try browsing the #crochettoy section.
