Crochet Hugs & Kisses Baby Blanket by Jeanne Steinhilber

A brand new granddaughter is arriving soon, so that means a brand new baby blanket in honour of her. This crochet project features a series of cross stitches and bobbles, or X’s & O’s, so that is how this became the Hugs & Kisses Baby Blanket.

I used the new Caron Baby Cakes in Dreamy Rose for this, but feel free to substitute regular Caron Cakes or any worsted weight yarn of your choice.

The stitches all come from the Stitch is Right Wave Game that we played here on The Crochet Crowd back in 2016.  I choose 4 of the 8 stitches we learned in pattern to create this blanket.  All the video tutorials of each stitch are below to help you.  You can easily adapt this chevron blanket to any size you’d prefer.  The finished size is 36″ x 40″.

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favourites by following me HERE.

Hugs & Kisses Baby Blanket

Designed by Jeanne Steinhilber

Caron® Baby Cakes™ Yarn 3.5 oz./ 100 g, 231 yds. / 211 m

Dreamy Rose 6 balls or equivalent of any worsted weight #4 yarn.

Size U.S. H/8 (5.0 mm) crochet hook.

Measurements Approx 36” X 40” [91 x 101 cm]. 

Abbreviations List 

Ch(s) = Chain(s)

Dc = Double crochet

Dc3tog = Double crochet 3 together

Hdc = Half double crochet

Hdc3tog = Half double crochet 3 together

Rep = Repeat

Sc = Single crochet

Sc3tog = Single crochet 3 together

Sk = Skip

St(s) = Stitch(es)

WS = Wrong side

Yoh = Yarn over hook

Special Stitches

X-st = Sk next st, dc in next st, dc in skipped st.

Bobble = Dc5tog in the same st.  In next st, *yoh, pull up a loop, yoh, pull through 2 loops; rep from * 4 times, until you have 6 loops on hook, yoh and pull through all to complete 5 dc together. These are worked on the wrong side.

Stitch Multiples = 28 + 18

I’ve seen several blankets made into a throw size of 54” X 66” with a starting chain of 214 with about 4000 yards of worsted weight yarn.

Helpful Tip = If you have trouble recognizing the “peaks” and “valleys” of the chevron, use stitch markers until you are comfortable. This is especially helpful on the hdc and bobble row.  The hdc3tog tends to lean off to the side and can be hard to spot.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
