This pattern has been saved to My Knitting Patterns.
Are you tired of standard pink and blue baby nurseries? Maybe you and your child are obsessed with woodland creatures and want his hats, sweaters, and blankets to reflect that. These 25 knitting patterns for babies are for you. We also have some patterns for children thrown in there, so your little one can be one with the forest long after he can walk and talk!
From mysterious owls to clever foxes, your nursery will be brimming with the absolute majesty of the forest. Knitting for babies doesn't have to be boring. We have patterns for every woodland animal you can think of, and your baby will just look so precious in all of them! The best part is that these patterns are totally gender-neutral, so they're perfect as knitted gifts for baby showers or when the mommy wants the gender to be a surprise.

So Foxy: Free Baby Knitting Patterns
Foxes are a safe bet for any baby nursery. Clever and cute, they probably represent your baby pretty well, huh? The oranges, browns, and grays of these knitting patterns for babies are the perfect neutrals for a nice, relaxing nursery and accessories that your baby is sure to love. Who knows? The fox might even end up being their favorite animal one day!
Start by checking out the Foxy Baby Blanket, which is pictured. How cool is it that each of the little fox motifs line up perfectly and create a patchwork effect? Feel free to knit each fox the same color or switch it up a bit; whichever you think your baby will love the most!

Bear-y Cute and Easy Knitting Patterns
In the wild, bears can be big and scary, but that's only because the mama bear would do anything to protect her cub! Isn't that the same with you? You can turn your little cub into your actual little cub with these adorable (and free!) baby knitting patterns inspired by bears. AllFreeKnitting has a variety of different bear-inspired patterns, but in keeping with the woodland theme, there are only brown and black bear-inspired free knitting patterns here. Be sure to check out the equally-as-adorable polar bear patterns on the site, such as this Little Polar Bear Knit Hat!
Owl Always Love You: How to Knit Owls for Baby
You didn't think you'd get through this list without a single owl mention, did you? Owls have been incredibly popular lately for moms, grandmas, and babies alike, and is there any real wonder why? They're exotic, but familiar, and just totally precious (and a little bit dorky) with their giant eyes and turning heads. These free baby knitting patterns will let your child snuggle up with his or her very own owl. I can guarantee she'll like it; my little second cousin's room is absolutely littered with owls, and she adores them! Plus, if your child is ever afraid of the dark, you can just remind him that owls stay awake in the dark, so his Easy Little Black Owl will keep him protected while he sleeps!

These knitting patterns for babies are safe for every kind of child, since there's nothing potentially scary or threatening about rabbits. Plus, kids just love those big, floppy ears!

The forest is absolutely brimming with adorable animals! Which ones are your favorite? Personally, I love deer the most, which is why this Speckled Fawn Baby Hat is so cute to me! The best part about this baby hat knitting pattern is that there's also a size available for a four year-old, so those of you with toddlers don't have to miss out on all of the cuteness.
