One of my favorite crochet projects to work on is the humble and sweet crochet baby blanket. Not only are baby blankets adorable, but they’re also super quick and easy to make.

Learn how to crochet a baby blanket and it just might become an heirloom. They mean the world to the parents who receive your beautiful gift and will likely treasure their beautiful blanket 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 crochet 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.

    I knit more than I crochet so appreciate any helpful crochet suggestions I can get (also knitting suggestions). I am a senior citizen and do quite a lot of handwork and have been at it for about 76 years now.

    Greetings from Indonesia.

    Hi, my name is ariani. Sorry for my poor English. I have found your free pattern of cress-over block stitch baby blanket on Pinterest and I was very eager to try.

    But I always ended up getting smaller than my former length measurement. Why could that be happening ? Can you help me…

    Thank you and regards
    Ariani

      Make sure the yarn used is the 5 bulky called for. If it is then try using a larger hook. I tend to crochet with fairly tight stitches causing this problem. I have learned to go up one hook size on most patterns to compensate.
