One of my most beloved things I own is a blanket my mom crocheted for me when she was pregnant with me. I think she started making it before she knew what she was having because it is both pink and blue with a little yellow thrown in. It has stood up through many washings and being dragged from place to place so many times. A handmade gift for someone who is expecting will be well-cherish, I can assure you of that! If you are looking for ideas on what to crochet, here are 10 free crochet patterns for babies to inspire you!
