Baby Boy Blanket Crochet Patterns

When searching for free baby blanket patterns, I found that the majority of baby blankets were a little on the feminine side. I’m even a culprit of this as my Simple Baby Blanket could be considered quite girly. Now I honestly think you can make crochet blankets for babies without spending too much time considering gender. However, there are times when you may be searching for baby boy blanket crochet patterns.

Included in the collection below are baby blanket patterns for boys. I recently designed this free pattern for an Adorable Baby Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern (pictured below) that is a great baby blanket pattern for baby boys or girls. Or if you don’t know the gender of the baby yet and you’re like me and wanted to get started crocheting a baby blanket right away!
