Baby blankets and baby afghans are delightful crochet projects.  They're both useful and beautiful. They make outstanding baby shower gifts, and they're also great for either charity crocheting or keeping.

Pictured here: the heart sampler afghan for baby girls. You could make a boy's version of this afghan if you use blues, greens and yellows instead of the colors pictured. Click here to see more color ideas.

We've posted a wide variety of free crochet patterns for baby afghans. There are patterns for both boys and girls, and plenty that are unisex too.

Baby Bibs

If you need a quick baby shower gift that's also affordable, consider crocheting a baby bib or two. They're so much fun to make -- think cute animals, fun stitch textures, and playful colors! Bibs are practical gifts; any new mom would be glad to have a few more bibs stashed away for her little one.

Baby hats are also fun, affordable and practical crochet projects. The picture shows a classic baby bonnet, which is an easy design to crochet. However, our list of baby hats includes many different styles, including beanies and others.

Some of our patterns feature multiple sizes, in case you'd like to make matching hats for several of the children in the family.
