Cross-Stitch Baby Blanket


Just today, I ran into this GORGEOUS baby blanket crocheted by an amazing crochet artist, Carol Sue Miller. 

She came up with a pattern that is simply stunning and I had to ask if I could share it! Since she’s amazing, she happily agreed and here we all are! I’m super excited to share it with all of you because–as you can see, it’s really quite lovely.

    When I finish my blanket I let you know what I came up with. I love Caron Simply Soft Yarn, but this time I using Lion Brand Baby Soft and a larger hook (6MM). I needed a light airy blanket as we live in Hawaii, and this pattern works very well..

    I’m crocheting this beautiful blanket. Can’t wait to see it finished. I noticed that there’s no mention on how much yarn is used, 1 skein 2? Do you know? I don’t see any dimensions either. Do you know?

      This pattern isn’t mine so I can’t tell you exactly but I would guesstimate for the yarn and then add in an extra skein just to be safe ;) (What’s one more skein in the pile, right?!?! lol)

    You have no idea what a lifesaver you are right now! My son’s favorite blanket is unraveling super fast and I didn’t make it. I’ve been searching for two days and finally found the pattern here! I didn’t know what I was going to do if blankie died.

      Awe!!! I’m thrilled for you and your son (but mostly for you because I know how difficult it can be to console your little one when all they want is blankie!!!) <3

        I’ve used many of your patterns. I’m surprised I never noticed it was blankie.

    I love this blanket and I am making it for my granddaughter but I am new to crocheting and was wondering instead of 99 on the chain how would I figure it to be a little bigger? Thanks for your help
