Safety Precautions When Crocheting Or Knitting For Your New Baby

Crocheting or knitting for your baby can be very rewarding, whether crocheting for your own baby or someone else's. And babies generally look super cute in everything you crochet for them. However, there are some safety precautions to consider when crocheting or knitting for your new baby.


One thing to consider is the material. You want to make sure that your baby is not allergic, that it does not irritate the skin, or that it falls apart while the baby is wearing it.

Your safest bet is to stick to baby yarns found in the baby section. At the same time, you still want to research each new yarn you work with, as yarn is sometimes recalled for a variety of reasons.

Double check that everything is safe

When finishing your baby's item, make sure everything is neat and secure. All buttons, applications and embellishments can come loose if not fitted properly, so be sure to use a strong material to secure everything. And also make sure to use proper technique that keeps the baby playing or pulling on it repeatedly.

Another thing to double check is your loose ends. The last thing you want is for the item to come loose and suffocate or suffocate your little one. That would be a real tragedy. So leave a longer tail than usual to give yourself plenty of yarn to weave in and out to secure your work.

This applies to all baby items from clothing to baby toys.

The correct size

A clothing that is a little too big on a baby is probably harmless. Just make sure it is not too big, otherwise they may get into trouble. But make sure you do not cut off their circulation by crocheting items that fit too tightly. This goes for hats, sweaters, pants, booties and anything else you decide to crochet for them.

Always check your meter to make sure it reaches the intended size. And also pay attention to the material you use, as some material will result in a much more comfortable fabric than others. Acrylic is generally elastic, whereas cotton is not so much.

All for Lacy

Another thing to consider is lace. You do not want any holes large enough for the baby to become entangled. A bit of lace, big enough for their fingers to penetrate, is generally safe, but you don't want their whole hand to go through and get caught.
