My nephew’s fiance is having a baby! I’m so excited! I’m going to be a great auntie! So fun! AND that means that I can make cute things for the baby! Baby is due around Christmas and we don’t know the gender, so it’s a gender-neutral baby pattern round up! If you have a baby you’re knitting or crocheting for, I have a lovely collection of ideas for you!

Let’s start with garments! This stunning Baby Wool Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Little French Knits is an adorable French-inspired striped cardigan with a raglan button opening. I love this one; I think it reads a little bit girly, so I’m a little hesitant to go with this one for my nephew’s baby, but this pattern comes with 3 sizes: 0-3 months, 6-9 months, and 12-18 months, so I could totally make the 12-18 months size for next Christmas!
How adorable is this Back to School Kids Jacket Knitting Pattern from Agasalhos e Bugalhos? You could duplicate stitch a letter on the chest; how sweet would that be? This pattern is available in 11 sizes from 0 months up to 14 years! Incredible! You could make this for any kid or a collection of matching jackets for a family of kids! If this letterman’s jacket isn’t your style, Agasalhos e Bugalhos has soooooo many other adorable baby patterns, it’s worth taking a look in the shop to find a classic baby knitting pattern that you’ll love!
The Joyous Baby Cardigan Knitting Pattern is another one of those stunning baby knitting patterns from Agasalhos e Bugalhos. This pattern is worked top-down in garter stitch, which makes a nice thick fabric while also being easy and quick to knit. This pattern comes with instructions to knit 8 sizes from newborn to 24 months.
This Hooded Baby Jacket from Easy Knitting Camp is another garter-stitch jacket, but this one with a warm and cozy hood and double-breasted buttons. This pattern includes 6 sizes, from 0 months to 6 years and is knit in once piece from the top down, using raglan construction to shape th yoke, so it requires no sewing! I love seamless patterns; they’re my favourite!
The Beginning Cardigan Knitting Pattern from Knits Du Nord is a classic, top-down, seamless knitting pattern including instructions to make 7 different sizes from 0 months to 8 years. Simple and classic, you can’t go wrong with this adorable knitting pattern.
Not to forget the crocheters in the room, this Crochet Sasha Sweater is a great crochet baby sweater option from Bananna Patterns includes 4 sizes, from 0-6 months to 3-4 years. I love the additional texture on the body, which adds to its specialness. This would make a delightful gift for baby!
The Mika Crocheted Cardigan Pattern from Petit Chou Chou Shop is a top-down, seamless crochet cardigan pattern for baby. Instructions are given for 7 sizes from 0 months to 6 years. I love how classic and simple this lovely little jacket is! Perfect for baby boys or baby girls!
I’m always torn between wanting to dress babies like little grown ups or like dolls with fun things like bear ears. I think there’s room for both! This Baby Bear Hoodie Crochet Pattern from Adele Uyan Crochet is just the ticket for a not-too-costumey hooded sweater with a touch of whimsy with little bear ears. You could skip them I guess, if you didn’t want the bear look, but I think they’re so adorable.
Not your traditional baby booties, this Crochet Baby Sneakers Pattern from Crochet Club Store Co are such a fun little baby shoe for your little one! This pattern makes a pair of slippers in a 3-6 month size, so keep that in mind. What a fun little pattern!
The Rainbow of Stars Baby Blanket from Three Loops on the Hook is a fun crocheted blanket pattern that would be a fun option for baby! It would be sure to be a treasured blanket! I can totally see this blanket being the kind of blanket that would become a loved comfort item for a child, that they would take with them into adulthood, worn and loved.
Another fun option is a sweet stuffed animal! I love this adroable Baby Bunny Knitting Pattern from Elves World. This sweet little stuff bunny pattern also includes instructions for those adorable dungarees (overalls) as well as a cute beret not show in this photo. This would be such an adorable stuffed toy for baby!
I just love the unexpectedness of this fun Amigurumi Knit Good Pattern from Amy Gaines. Honestly, I was drawn to this pattern because it reminds me of my middle son (16), but it’s such a delightful little stuffed animal pattern, a little unexpected, but definitely delightful!
There’s just something about bunnies that just say “baby” and this little Cotton, My Little Rabbit Amigurumi Crochet Pattern from Pensebonheur definitely says that! “Big ears, a round belly, a pretty romper and a look of full tenderness” is how this adorable doll is described. The pattern comes in 4 languages with 9 pages of instructions and photos to make this little rabbit toy.
I couldn’t just scroll past this sweet little Baby Cake Bunny Crochet Pattern from Ninas Time 4U; it was just too cute! Patterns for all the accessories you see here are also included: the beanies, dungarees and swaddle bags, as well as the adorable little bunny! This pattern is available in English and German and it would make the sweetest baby shower gift!
