Criss Cross Baby Blanket – Free Pattern


Hello everybody! If you’re here it’s because you’re looking for a new pattern, am I right? Well, this is where you’ll find it. We’ve already shared many amazing models, but there’s always something new out there and we don’t want to be left out. Today we’re going to a classic piece, maybe the first one you learned to crochet. The Criss Cross Baby Blanket is this beautiful model, super cute, with a lot of texture. 

Of course, a lot of that comes from the yarn you choose, and the rest is the detail that the stitch will provide. Blankets are essential pieces in our daily lives. Even when the day isn’t too cold, it’s cozy to have a blanket like this to throw on top. And in addition to being comfortable, they look beautiful in the decor too. For many people, the first contact with crochet was through a piece like this one. In the old days, this technique was very common to be done by older people, mothers or grandparents who did it for their closest relatives. 

Over the years, the technique has become popular, and in recent years it has exploded among all ages. We even have children who learn to make a piece they like, a decoration for their room. And who benefits from this is all of us. I always say that the more people do it, the more ideas come up, new pieces are created and the technique will never get old.

To crochet you don’t need many materials, you already know that? Need yarn, crochet hook and scissors. It’s always good to have a measuring tape near you too. In the pattern you have a certain size. Measure the space you want to place it in, check the size of your bed and increase or decrease the number of rounds or stitches. If this is one of your first crochet sizes, the technique and stitch are easy to learn. But it’s always good to pay attention to some details. When choosing yarn, choose quality materials. 

The lighter colors are more suitable for beginners. It is easier to follow step by step and identify where possible errors are. Made a round and didn’t like the result? Crochet allows you to tear it apart and do it again without spending too much material. And do this as many times as necessary. Let’s start? The criss cross pattern is freely available to you at Love Crafts. It’s a baby blanket that you can also use in decoration, it doesn’t have any detail that limits its use. Let’s crochet!
