10 free crochet baby patterns for shower gift ideas

Babies are so much fun to crochet for. Whether you want to make something as a baby shower gift or just want to work on a project while you’re pregnant: you need these super cute free baby crochet patterns!

Most (going to be) mothers appreciate handmade gifts, so I always make something for friends and family who are expecting. My most favorite crochet baby shower gift is the bunny teething ring, I’ve made at least 5 of ‘em already and I’m working on two as we speak.

The last three years I came across many other amazing free baby crochet patterns. I decided to round them up to give you some inspiration for your next baby shower.

And the best part is: all patterns are free! To get the free patterns, just click on the title or photo. If you are interested in more free crochet patterns, see my other roundups here.

2. Funny Breastfeeding Hat by Wilmade
Maybe not a gift you can make for every mom, I mean, you have to like this kind of jokes. But my auntie LOVED this hat that looks like a breast! When she showed the hat to her friends, many asked me to make one for them as well.
