Crochet Criss Cross Chevron Baby Blanket
Why buy a baby shower gift when you can crochet something special and unique? I made this Crochet Criss Cross Chevron Baby Blanket for a co-worker who is soon to have a baby girl. I was so attracted to the soft-look of Caron Jumbo Rosewood, then highlighted it with 2 neutral shades.
