I really like when I find a set of patterns in one place. Not that it will make it easier for me to select a pattern. I always have a hard time with that. This way I can save this link and have a huge selection to choose from at a later date. Thanks you for the compilation.

Baby blankets are such a treasured item. Knowing you're making something that might be passed down from generation to generation is so special. I love the options in this collection!

I just discovered a close friend is having a baby in July. I have a lot of time to get a beautiful baby blanket made for her but the hard part is trying to find only one to make. These are all so beautiful.

Tried this craft? What did you think?

When I try to go to the pattern for The Cool Chevron Baby Blanket it is not there could you please load it for me or send it to my E-mail.

Thank you for letting us know. I have sent an email to the designer and am waiting on a response. If the site remains down, I will remove and replace The Cool Chevron Blanket with a similar pattern. I apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks, Krista, Editor

Wow. 30 baby blanket patterns. I'm currently making baby blankets for giving out as gifts and to make as sample for my business. Thanks for these patterns. You are so generous with your patterns.

I am looking for the pattern for the Baby Blanket with Ruffled Edges. It is purple in colour with white ruffled edging. Hope you can help! Sorry but the photo didn't work out.

Thank you so much for offering these free patterns. You have no idea how handy they come in when someone like myself is trying to teach someone to crochet. They need something easy yet something that comes out looking pretty and makes them feel proud that they accomplished it.
