Moses Basket Baby Crochet Pattern

Any little girl will love to carry a small baby doll in this Moses basket with matching bunting and bonnet. This crochet pattern ensemble is constructed out of softest superfine (also known as sock- or fingering-weight) yarn to make it dainty, yet durable for play. Even a collectable cherub doll can have an appropriate resting place for you to display them in style. The sturdy Moses basket comes with instructions to complete a bumper lining, a lightly stuffed mattress and miniature afghan and pillow where your precious, petite angel can rest its head. The bunting and bonnet crochet pattern are designed fit a 5-inch tall doll. Once completed, all you need is to tuck your tiny treasure into the Moses Basket. Now it is easy to carry this precious cargo anywhere.

Even though the set is made from Superfine yarn, only basic crochet stitches are used throughout. The entire set is categorized as "Easy" for a beginner crochet level. This crochet pattern set includes several small-scale pieces that are easy to take with it. This makes the Moses Basket Baby pattern an ideal crochet project to work on when traveling or sitting in a waiting room. The easy skill level means you can quickly pick up the pattern where you left off. There is no worry about intricate design stitches that require extra counting and tracking. Moses Basket Baby makes a great gift idea for anyone that collects or enjoys playing with baby dolls. Change up the color combinations for a customized crochet baby set that fits the personality of the receiver.

I spent hours and hours on the Moses Basket crochet pattern.  At one point I was very discouraged and ready to throw the whole thing, baby and all out the window!  Luckily I persisted and once I put it all together I realized it was one of the cutest things I have ever designed! 

I used fingering weight Twinkle Yarn and a 5" Doll.   Additional materials you will need are a very small amount of fiberfill and one sheet of plastic canvas. 
These would make great baby shower gifts or items to sell at shows.  Just remember to give designer credit.
Dress up your teeny, cherished cherub in a matching two-tone bunting and bonnet, made from the softest superfine (also known as sock- or fingering-weight) yarn. Then tuck your tiny treasure into a Moses Basket to carry around with you.  Inside the sturdy basket, lined with a bumper, are a lightly stuffed mattress and miniature afghan and pillow, where your precious, petite angel can rest its head.

Even though the crochet pattern set is made from Superfine yarn, only basic crochet stitches are used throughout, categorizing the skill level for this adorable ensemble as "Easy".

This is absolutely lovely. I love all the patterns from Maggie Weldon. She alway give very good instructions and tells you before you buy a pattern if it is easy or not. Such beautiful ideas and inspirational patterns. Love getting the emails and the free patterns as well.

This was my first Maggie Weldon pattern, and oh! what a delight it has been to work it. I used vintage Columbia Minerva yarn (from a yard sale) instead of the Twinkle (which seems to be hard to get). I was mostly impressed by the fact how perfectly everything fits together. For example, following the mesh count for the basket fits perfectly the cover that you crochet, so there is no tugging or squishing stitches when you tack the top. The gown fits the little doll perfectly - the cute hands stick out, and the face is beautifully framed by the bonnet. Putting the mattress in, and then the bumper on top of it works out to be the perfect height of the basket, and the ruffles peak out the top very fluffily. When it is all done the doll looks very cuddly, and you wish you could exchange places with it! The instructions are easy to follow and work very well. They are so detailed, step by step, that even a beginner should not have any issues to follow successfully. The advanced crocheter may want to combine or simplify a few steps, but it is also fun to just follow the directions as they are written and see your project progress without having to think a lot. I thought working the delicate little pieces would be annoying (usually I make sweaters and afghans), but any annoyance has been overshadowed by watching how those little things take on shape while you're working on them. And the time spent on this project is rewarded with a piece of art. I wish I could attach a photo. Lastly, the itty bitty doll is absolutely worth the money: Good quality, and a delightful appearance. The Moses Basket is truly a project for all ages. I'm sure such a basket would please any little girl, but I probably will keep my first one as decoration.

I made this for a little girl to welcome her new baby sister, being an only child, this helped her be a "mommie" and was so happy to open her own present at the hospital to see not one but 2 babies. One for mommie, and one for herself.
