33+ Free Baby Blanket Knitting Patterns

(Last updated: 15th January, 2020)

A while ago we launched out an appeal asking KnittingWomen.com visitors, and also our dear Facebook Fans, what it is they’re looking for most when is comes to knitting and patterns.

We received an overwhelming amount of feedback, mostly encouraging us to scour the web for free knitting patterns to share with you all here. In fact this will be the first of a series of new posts focusing primarily on free knitting patterns… we’ll be sharing patterns for baby items including booties and hat, but not only, so do keep an eye out for what we’ve going to post in the coming weeks.

In our first post today we’re going to be focusing on baby blankets… and with a list of 41 patterns to choose from below, you are truly spoilt for choice!

Each link will take you to the website where the free pattern is available and you’ll be able to download your baby blanket patterns. Some website might required that you register with them first to access the pattern, but I’ve only shared those requiring free registrations… so there’s no cost to you.

Enjoy and don’t forget to let us know, in the comments section below, or any other patterns you’re looking for so we can add them to our list!
