Knit and crochet quick baby gifts

copyright Hinke
Last week, knitnscribble profiled a super quick free baby blanket pattern by Kay Mather. Looking through my favorite baby patterns, came across this little baby hoodie jacket sideways pattern called "Snug," from the plethora of free knitting patterns on Ravelry. With a crochet cast-on, the sweater is knit all in garter stitch, one size, 6 months, using US 10 (6mm) needles and is sure to be a very quick project.

Paired with Kay's baby blanket, makes a wonderful new baby gift. For the matching stay-on baby booties to knit or crochet, free patterns are available from Bernat Yarns. You can find the direct links here, with a lot more free baby bootee patterns with pictures.

Another great unisex baby gift, great for boys and for girls is "Snowy Day" a classic design Fair Isle pattern with a boxy fit that's good for at least two seasons and can be passed down to the next baby in the family. Read about Snowy Day here

"Oliver and Olivia" Cardigan pattern is a terrific knitting pattern for baby gifts, too, with instructions for boy sweaters and for girls. Timeless design, you'll use over and over again. Read about Oliver and Olivia here
