Best Crochet Patterns to make for Baby Boys and Toddlers

Are you wondering why on earth am I sharing Crochet Patterns to make for Baby Boys and Toddlers...what about the Baby Girls and Toddlers?

I can't believe that I have not shared more about my life as a grandma with you.....a 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 (most gorgeous little hunks on the planet) each time I come across 'Boyish' crochet pattern on Pinterest, I save it.  And...why keep it to myself? 

Trust me, there are 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 actually finish all of out little adventures?!?)

Without further ado...here are the...

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 and shoot and always want to be the heroes! And, there is nothing wrong with that.



  • A CROCHET CASTLE by Mieks Creaties (Dutch site) offering crochet patterns

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 man and 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 the majority 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...

DRAGONS

What will a Dragon ship be, without a real Dragon!!

Briabby creates intricate crochet patterns and each one is a masterpiece! Her dragon is so full of detail, it looks like Toothless!  If you don't know who Toothless is, I learned from my grandson and loved the movie.

It will take some time and effort to crochet the dragon, but you will definitely be so proud of your accomplishment ( to copy Briabby).

Talking about dragons and Toothless, Krawka on Etsy offers the most amazing crochet pattern for this little sweetheart dragon.

I think she really did a great job and am loving this pattern.

What are little boys made of... DRAGONS and DINOSAURS!

Another Dragon pattern, this time in the form of a blanket cum sleeping bag.

The blanket is crocheted with two strands of bulky weight yarn and won't take forever to complete.  Full picture tutorial included.

Crochet a life-size dragon, as a seat or creature to take your little boy to his own world.

Nothing of the detail was compromized and it is a lovely crochet project.

What is it about dinosaurs that fascinate boys so much?
