One of my favorite crochet projects to work on is the humble and sweet baby blanket. Not only are baby blankets adorable, they’re also super quick and easy to make. Also, they mean the world to the parents who receive your beautiful gift and will likely treasure it for years to come. I had a family member give us a handmade crochet baby blanket when my daughter was born and it was one of the most precious gifts that we received.

This Cross-Over stitch blanket is super easy to make and like many of my patterns, once you get started, you can practically make it with your eyes closed.

Easy ‘Done in a Day’ Crochet Baby Blanket

| Crochet, My Life

This crochet baby blanket is about as easy as it gets. As long as you can chain and double crochet, you can whip up one of these blankets in no time flat.

Easy ‘Done in a Day’ Crochet Baby Blanket

This week, I found out that the couple who have been helping to clean our Airbnb suite were going to be taking a break. They had a great reason – they’re having a baby! We’ve obviously known for a while now but we didn’t realize they were ending their work with us this week.

We’re really happy for this couple and we wanted to show our appreciation but I only had a couple of days to prepare something. I decided I was going to crochet a baby blanket on Wednesday night around 8 pm. This blanket had to be ready by Friday at noon when they came to help us one last time.

I ransacked my yarn stash and found enough yarn to create something that would be appropriate for a baby boy blanket. 

In just about 24 hours my project was complete and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out – especially with yarn that I already had and in such a short amount of time.

This crochet baby blanket is about as easy as it gets. As long as you can chain and double crochet, you can whip up one of these blankets yourself. Feel free to change up the colors and customize for either gender or to go with the nursery decor.
