On Fridays, I share a link blast on
Twitter and Facebook to get you excited about crocheting all weekend! Keeping with the #FlashbackFriday meme, I’m sharing patterns were first released at least 12 months ago.
Today, I’m sharing a roundup of more than 15 free crochet patterns for baby blankets and other items for a layette set. Baby projects are small and easy to carry around when the weather gets warmer. All photos are used with permission and are copyright the respective designers.
Unless otherwise noted, all patterns are free.
