Crochet Bubble Pop Baby Blanket
This is the Crochet Bubble Pop Baby Blanket that I have finished. I wanted to experiment with finding a yarn that would blend nicely with the Bernat POP! yarns. I choose Caron One Pound. It was only slightly different, but really worked out well. There are so many color choices that it is a nice yarn to mix with the Pops.
I used the Riddle Stitch to create this bubbly, soft, textured blanket. I did break up one of the balls by color to create the border of this blanket. I really had very little yarn left over, so I feel it was worth it.

This bubble blanket could easily be made any size with a multiple of 3 + 2. And colors… the possibilities are endless! I think this would make a fun scrap blanket too.
