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.

Comments on “UPDATED: Crochet Criss Cross Chevron Baby Blanket”
I have a question about the instructions on row 2. Shouldn’t the dc3tog be on top of each other? Also the 3dc in the same stitch. Mine is buckling with the two on top of each other. I just want to make sure it comes out right. Love the pattern!! Thank you in advance!
In the chevron patterns each row is a bit “off” from the one below it b/c you add extra stitches with the 3tog’s. It may drive you a bit crazy(it does me:)), but it is ok. As for your dc3tog, you may be crocheting them a little too tight or too loose. Try playing with your tension when you dc3tog and see if that helps. I had to loosen my stitches up b/c I crochet a bit tight. Hope this helps. Good luck!!
Is there a way to post pictures? I am making this with Rose instead of lace and Bernat Natural instead of Caron Off White and is coming out gorgeous! I love this pattern.
Yeah you can post pictures to our Facebook Page. We don’t have any uploading on our website protect ourselves from being hacked.
I have a question about row 2. I hope you’ll still see this and have an answer for me. At the end of the row, I have only 3 criss crosses and 2 stitches left. Do I do another cross cross and then place 2 more double crochets on the last stitch or skip a stitch and do 3 DCs on the last stitch? Or something else. I have counted my stitches and ripped out and re- done this several times and I always end up at this ending so I’m relatively sure I’ve crocheted it correctly.
Hoping for a quick answer. Thank you so much for all you do!
The pattern doesn’t tell how many skeins of yarn to purchase, do I assume its one of each for the baby blanket?
JoAnne, I used only one of each color.
I’m on row 5 and my Afghan looks like a big ruffle. Is this the way the Afghan supposed to be? My mom says it doesn’t look right. I really like the pattern and wanted to do it for my newborn grandson. I guess I’ll just have to give up.
Okay… I was going to offer a thought but it sounds like you are already giving up. I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you. Michael
Ok. I really like this pattern and haven’t ripped out any stiches and I haven’t worked on the baby blanket since. I’ve been trying to find a similar pattern where I wouldn’t have to rip out everything I have done with no luck. Any suggestions would help.
Hi there I love love the criss cross baby blanket and it beautiful vintage look I just bought the yarn and was wondering how I can make it as a regular size afghan instead of a baby blanket size. Would very much appreciate your input. Kind regards Brigitte you can reach me at [email protected] thank you
I will have Jeanne look at her pattern this week at some point. 😀
Brigitte, mine was 36″ width and worked in multiples of 24 + 3. So just keep adding 24 more until you get to the width you prefer.
Hi, I’m new to crocheting, so, please forgive my question on row 1. On row 1 shouldn’t you skip som stitches to start forming the scallops in the Afghan or will row 2 start making it to look like it’s scalloped? My Afghan so far look like it’s going in a circle.
Just picked up some yarn on sale that would work wonderfully for this pattern. Looking forward to hooking it.
I’d love to see yours when it’s done. 🙂
