About the Inspiration for the Snuggly Ripple Baby Blanket Pattern
Crochet chevron patterns are classic. They are also some of my favorites! For this pattern, I wanted to create a chevron design that would also be a quick make in the baby blanket yarn.
After working with the idea of simple chevron baby blanket, I decided that adding popcorns would add to the classic look.
About the Yarn
Bernat Baby Blanket yarn is one of those super popular go-to yarns for baby gifts. Since it’s super bulky weight, the projects work up very fast.
It’s soft, squishy, and affordable. You can choose a variety of colors too to suit your desired color scheme.

Sizing and Gauge
Size: One size. Approximately 33” x 38”

- Placing markers in the first dc of the popcorn stitches is recommended.
- When working the row following a popcorn row, ignore the chain stitch at the top of the pop and work into the first dc of the pop. If you place markers as recommended when you work the pop sts, you will be working into these marked sts on the following row and skipping the ch sts that are just before the marked sts.
- Placing markers on the edge stitches and moving them up as you go along is also recommended.
- When ending a row of one color yarn, fasten off. Then join the new color with a sl st at the beginning of the next row.
- Working row 1 into the bottom bumps of the chain is recommended – tutorial at https://craftingeachday.com/how-to-crochet-in-the-bottom-bump-of-the-chain/
