The Summer Waves Blanket is a bright and sunny chevron crochet baby blanket perfect for showing off a favorite color. This timeless ripple blanket in double crochet stitches looks gorgeous in two contrasting colors. Choose white with a bright accent color. Or pick a color combination that you love.
Using soft baby yarn creates a warm and snuggly gift for a baby girl or baby boy. The optional popcorn border included in the crochet blanket pattern adds a rich texture.

The pattern includes full written instructions for the blanket as well as options for a smooth border or the popcorn border. Photo tutorials are included for the two special stitches for the popcorn border – the herringbone half double crochet and the popcorn stitch. I love how the popcorn border adds rich texture the classic chevron crochet baby blanket. It looks equally classic with a simple border of single crochet or herringbone half double crochet as well.
The crochet blanket pattern also includes notes for how to adjust the pattern to make a security size blanket, and you can adjust it even further using the stitch multiple.
