Criss-Cross Baby Blanket

As promised, here is the pattern for my first baby blanket that I've designed. It's really simple and works up fairly quickly! If you see any problems in the pattern, please let me know.



Chain 140 (If you want a smaller or larger blanket, just make sure you chain in even numbers)
Row 1: DC in 4th ch from hook. DC in each stitch to the last stitch. Ch 3. Turn.

Row 2: Skip first stitch and DC in next stitch. DC in stitch just skipped. Repeat until 2 stitches remain. DC in last stitch. Ch 3. Turn.

Row 3: Repeat row 2.

Row 4: DC in next stitch and each stitch across.

Repeat rows 2-4 until desired length. Mine measured about 36”. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

That's it! Next time, the pattern for the fingerless gloves that I showed in my last posting.

Go Noles!

  1. Hello! I was thinking about making this as a gift. I saw through Ravelry that you recommend Bernat 8 ply Softee Baby. That is about 362 yards a skein, and I'm just wondering how many skeins you think I'll need to complete this project? I'm thinking of ordering yarn off the internet. Thanks!

    1. I think I used 3 whole skeins and part of another one. So 4 total. I love that yarn! It makes such soft baby blankets :)

    1. Mine was about 36" long. When I make baby blankets I usually do them so that they lay across my lap. Not sure how how that is, sorry :)

  4. Do you have a suggestion for an edging? Picot?

    1. I've done just a simple SC, then DC. But I'm sure a picot edging or even a scalloped edging would look nice!!
