Crocheting for babies is a lot of fun; everything is so cute, tiny, and adorable. One downfall of crocheting baby clothes, however, is that they often outgrow the patterns in the blink of an eye. Luckily, babies never outgrow blankets, which is why they are such a popular pattern choice for homemade shower gifts. Babies love snuggling with the soft texture of homemade blankets, and moms will treasure them for years (maybe even decades) to come. Because of their small size, crochet afghan patterns for infants and toddlers are often easy to crochet.
