- Row 3: Repeat Row 2.
- Continue repeating Rows 2 and 3 until your bedspread reaches the desired length.
- Finish off your bedspread by working a row of single crochet stitches across the final row.
- Weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.
Make it Yours
While the pattern above provides a basic guide for creating a star popcorn bedspread, feel free to customize it to make it your own.

You can also adjust the size of the bedspread by adding or subtracting rows or changing the width of the foundation chain.
Caring for Your Bedspread
To keep your star popcorn bedspread looking its best, handle it with care. It is recommended to hand wash the bedspread in cold water using a gentle detergent. Lay it flat to dry, reshaping it if necessary. Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as this may damage the fibers of your crochet work.
