1. Basic Car Seat Tent

Easy button-on straps keep the fabric in place over the carseat. The canopy uses basic crochet stitches combined with post stitches that bring extra texture and thickness to the design — texture that helps to block out sun, light, wind, cold and noise. Add crochet appliqués of your choice as decoration.

2. Waffle Stitch Car Seat Canopy Blanket

The photo above gives you a great idea of how to add straps to any baby blanket to transform it for a carseat. This design is worked in the waffle stitch, another great texture for a cozy blanket. I love the combination of a variegated yarn for the border and straps with a white yarn for the bulk of the cover.

3. Simply Sweet Carseat Canopy

This striped pattern gives you a chance to combine two colors for a striking design. Working in the  back loop only  creates ribbed design, making it look like the smaller stripes are standing up off of the blanket. The neat effect is fun to play with and creates a texture that will feel good to baby's reaching hands.

4. Car Seat Canopy

The wider straps on the blanket make it look a little bit like a dress, an effect that you can exaggerate with your choice of buttons and addition of tassels. Plus, the whole design can look totally different based on how many colors you use.

5. Woven Car Seat Canopy

The post stitches create a really dense, warm texture and are fun to stitch! This canopy is particularly great for winter — in fact, it was designed to match a Winter Car Seat Blanket . Made primarily in one color, a second complementary color gives a beautiful pop to this pattern.

6. Chunky Star Stitch Canopy Cover

If you're seeking a thick, warm blanket that works up quickly but still has an interesting stitch, pick this pattern. It's great for a last-minute baby shower gift, too.

7. Charleston Car Seat Cover

Worsted weight yarn works up quickly but is lighter and breezier than designs worked with bulky yarn. This is one in a set of patterns that all use the same technique — make a matching Charleston shawl for a mommy-and-me look.

9. Crochet Baby Car Seat Blanket / Sweater

This crochet blanket slips right over the car seat, serving as a sweater for the car seat and the baby all at once. This functional, versatile pattern even includes instructions to make a removable binky holder that attaches to the blanket.
