Crochet Berry Ridge Textured Blanket


Hello Crochet Friends!  

It’s Cyndi!   You might know that a few months ago my sister Tiff started teaching me how to crochet and how to design crochet and I am absolutely loving it!  

If you haven’t yet, stop by and visit us for Crochet Sister Chat now on my YouTube channel, Sugar Joye where we chat about what we are working on and I get to ask Tiff all of my beginner crochet questions!  

With this latest blanket project, I’ve added the Front Post Single Crochet to my stitch library which is a simple variation on the single crochet that makes beautiful ribbing and pairs really well with the berry stitch


I was inspired by the Bundle Up Dots Blanket Tiff designed and Annie recreated for baby Kate’s Crochet Bundle Up Polka Dots in Cream! 

I haven’t learned the bobble stitch yet but I loved it so much I wanted to see if I could come up with something similar with the stitches I have learned!

I also added some short crocheted fringe on the ends that looks really nice! 

Check out my video on crochet fringe that can be added to any crochet or knit project.

I really loved how fun this was to make!

Blanket Pattern

Chain 130 (or any even number needed for approximately 6 feet.) 

ROW 1:  SC in the second chain from the hook, SC into each chain across the row. CH 1 and turn.

ROW 2:  Work 1 SC into the 1st stitch, Berry Stitch into the 2nd st.  Continue alternating 1 SC, and one Berry Stitch until the end of the row. Your last stitch of the row should be a SC.  CH 1 and turn.

ROW 3:  Work 1 SC into each stitch across the row, CH 1 and turn.

ROW 4: Work 1 SC into the 1st stitch, work 1 FPSC into the 2nd post from the turning chain. Continue working the FPSC until the last post. Work one SC into the last space, CH 2 and turn.

ROW 5:  Repeat Row 3.

ROW 6:  Repeat alternating Row 4 instructions and Row 3 instructions through Row 14

ROW 15:  Repeat Row 3. (SC row)

ROW 16:  Repeat Row 2. (Berry Stitch Row)

ROW 17:  Repeat Row 3 to 16 until you have 87 rows.

Tip:  Keep in mind that before and after each berry stitch row and each FPSC row is 1 row of SC.  This blanket is easily sized up or down by increasing or decreasing the repeat section of the pattern. There are 6 rows of alternating FPSC and SC between each row of berry stitch. 

Tie off and weave in the ends.

Fringe Border


Single Crochet (SC): Insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops on hook.

Slip Stitch (SL ST): Insert your hook, YO and pull a loop back through and through loop on hook.

Optional Tip:  For the fringe I sized down from the 9mm hook and used a 5.5mm hook.  By doing so it tightened up and straightened out the edges a little bit and the fringe was also a little tighter. 


For this add-on version of Fun Fringe,  I worked one row of single crochet at the end of the blanket to create a uniform row from which to work the fringe.

ROW 1:  Pull up a loop and work SC. SC into each space along the row. Chain 1 and turn. 

ROW 2: Work a slip stitch into the first space from the hook. Chain 15 for long fringe or 8 for short fringe.

ROW 3:  Turn and work a Slip Stitch into each chain.  At the base, work a slip stitch into the same space the chain started from. Work a Slip Stitch into the next chain. 

Repeat Row 2 and Row 3 until finished.  Tie off and weave in end.
