If you’ve got an Easter baby coming your way, setting aside this weekend to devote to making this Big Easter Bunny Crochet Pattern from Mascheneule and the new parents will have a 20-inch measuring comparison companion that can hang out beside the baby in all the monthly growth update photos!
This adorable little Baby Bear Hoodie Crochet Pattern from Adele Uyan Crochet will make a great wearable photo outfit for a little one. This pattern comes with 3 size options: newborn, 0-6 months, and 6-12 months. If you’re looking for toddler size, the 1-4 years sizes pattern is available here.

I just love the subtle horizontal texture on this lovely little baby garment! What a treasured gift this would be!
