Center Cross Baby Blanket – Free Pattern


Hi my loves! We are feeling that this week is going to be very productive. Are you guys liking what we’ve put together and tested so we can share it here with you? We always seek to vary, learn a little bit of everything and pieces for different occasions. Today we are going to learn how to make the Center Cross Baby Blanket. This blanket will make your little one even warmer and very cozy.

The arrival of a baby in the family is something very remarkable. We always take a lot of cake to prepare the trousseau. One of the main items that cannot be missed at this moment is a blanket, to warm up and bring comfort to the little ones. A crochet baby blanket can be a good option. The piece is all crafted with delicacy from appropriate threads to not cause allergies. So, before starting your making, make sure that the thread is suitable for babies and choose the model, colors and stitches you want to create the piece your way, but in an easy way too.


You can make the center cross baby blanket with two different colors. Just like the pattern. You can follow the same model or change the colors, do it with just one color. The stitches used are different, and that’s what makes the blanket even more delicate and unique. So even using the same color throughout the blanket, you will still be able to see the division. Let’s talk a little about the choice of yarn.

The best threads are those 100% cotton, they can also be strings specific to a baby thread. Crochet threads are usually made of wool, cotton or acrylic. The choices between wool and cotton are the most favorable to avoid allergies in babies. For delicate blankets never use a thick string, always try the soft threads for a firmer and more pampering finish. Following the measurements instructed in the pattern, in the end you will have a blanket of approximately 35” square not including picot crown edge.

If the idea is to cover the entire baby, it is possible to experiment with other cloths to be able to take the exact measurement and not run the risk of missing length or width in the piece.
