Baby crochet patterns can seem old or outdated, and most ideas for afghans and pillows lose their luster after being made a hundred different times. Stacey Trock helps you breathe new life into your projects with Modern Baby Crochet. Featuring 21 beginner-friendly patterns, both babies and moms will adore this book; with bookends, mobiles, toys, and more, don't just make another baby project, create a fun gift that will leave you and your loved ones with something to be proud of.


What really caught my eye is that this book is organized into color groups, so you won't have to go searching for the perfect blanket to match your nursery's color scheme. This must-have book keeps its ideas organized, so even if you feel hectic, settling in with a project from here will immediately relax you. Using trends like argyle and scallops, this book keeps your projects fresh while ensuring a classic design that will be loved for years to come. Colorblocking is a modern trend that you can find everywhere, and Modern Baby Crochet uses it in its "Fun on the Tummy! Mat" (pg. 48)  for a pretty play mat that will be just as fun and beautiful when that baby has babies.


This book includes patterns that both boys and girls will love, and has something for every kind of parent. If the parents are artistic, try working up the "Mondrian-Inspired Afghan" (pg. 19), or if the parents love gardening and the outdoors, the "Buzzy Bee Mobile" (pg. 69) makes a perfect gift for a baby shower. Because many of these patterns are gender-neutral, this book is perfect for any parents waiting to find out the gender of their baby. From adorable "Teddy Bear Bookends" (pg. 73) to "Rainbow Bunting" (pg. 39) for a colorful nursery, your gift will definitely be the hit of the party.
