Treya's Treasure Blanket by Laurinda Reddig

Treya's Treasure Blanket

The crosshatch stitch pattern has always been one of my favorites for baby blankets because it is very quick to work up and creates a more interesting crocheted fabric. When working with “ombre” or multicolored yarns, a neat pattern often arises as the diagonal 3-dc shells are formed. A few of the beginning crocheters who made several afghans for our first Remembering Rowan Project donation in 2009 tried this pattern after they got tired of plain double crochets.
