Are you wondering why I am sharing Crochet Patterns to make for Baby Boys and Toddlers…what about Baby Girls and Toddlers?
I can’t believe that I have not shared more about my life as a grandma with you……knitting, crocheting, sewing, embroidering, and cuddling grandma! Dare I say more…I’ll keep you busy all day.
Anyhow….because I had three girls, making girly stuff has always come naturally for me.
But since I have 2 grandsons (the most gorgeous little hunks on the planet) each time I come across a ‘Boyish’ crochet pattern on Pinterest, I save it. And… Why keep it to me?
Trust me, there is plenty of Boyish stuff around…. the more I see, the more I want to make…. what about you? (Some of us might have to live a bit longer to finish all of our little adventures?!?)
Without further ado…here are the…
BEST CROCHET PATTERNS TO MAKE FOR BABY BOYS AND TODDLERS
Little boys have fantasies too…spoil them with one of their favorite characters from a movie or story or add to their imaginary world with a special make.
CASTLES, KNIGHTS AND SHINING ARMOUR
It must have something to do with survival, but little boys instinctively know that they are protectors.
So, they fight, shoot, and always want to be the heroes! And there is nothing wrong with that.
Make your little boy, the King of his own castle with the pattern designed by Mieks. Add canons and knights with horses for hours of imaginary play. The pattern includes a man and a horse.
SHIPS and Sea creatures
Who has not hosted a Pirate party? Sometimes ‘boys’ turn 21 years old and then insist on a Pirate party. Yes, I know such a man…
And sharks and funny-looking sea animals are what tickle boys’ fancy.
We love to make what they want. If boys are into the wild waters, here are some ideas:
Susan Lowman created a Dragon ship to crochet and the pattern is available for free on Ravelry.
In Susan’s own words: “This ship isn’t hard to make, but it’s time-consuming with all the parts. The crochet skills involved are basic, with most of the pieces using only sc sts… There is one challenging part: the head (at least it was a “challenge” to design!!!). This dragon ship is only for those with enough patience to stick to it!
Apart from effort – just think of the little face when you present this ship to him…
The shark pouf/pouffe is something different to make for a boys’ room and is functional.
You can buy the crochet shark pouf pattern here.

This very scary-looking Shark pillow is so well-designed. It is on my to-do list, in fact, I purchased the yarn already.
It does not look overly complicated and will be a hit!
And best of all, the crochet pattern is free.
Well done Jullian and thank you for this beautiful handmade gift pattern.

What are little boys made of… DRAGONS and DINOSAURS!
The red dragon by Michelle of MJ’s Off the Hook is a force to be reckoned with. Crochet the dragon will take some time and effort, but you will be so proud of your accomplishment.
Crochet a life-size dragon, as a seat or creature to take your little boy to his own world.
Nothing of the detail was compromised and it is a lovely crochet project.
