So glad I was reminded of this pattern. I have a new nephew this year and his daddy plays baseball. Perfect!

I made this for a friend and her 3 month old baby. They LOVE it! Turns out super cute and soft, though the stitching takes quite a bit of patience. I didn't have any trouble with rippling so I don't know any tips for you AHawk. Sorry!


I'm trying to make this blanket for my nephew and it keeps rippling. I've started it over quite a few times already and I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas??
