I hope you liked the flowers last time around.
This time around, we’re adding another 3D block with a stitch called “popcorn”.
How you’ll go beyond the granny this month
1. You’ll read a pattern
2. You’ll learn how to create popcorn stitches
How to create a Popcorn stitch
It’s really easy
The first step is to hook the number of stitches (usually tr UK, dc US terms) in the same stitch or space as the pattern directs. In our case, we’ll be doing 5 stitch popcorns, so hook 5 tr/dc in the space or stitch :
Then, you take your hook out of the last stitch and insert it in the top of the first stitch in our group :
The last step is to pull the loop from the last stitch through the first stitch :
That’s it, popcorn done.
Popcorn Progression Patterns
As always, if you hit any snags, let me know & we’ll work it out together.
1. Hook up at least 3 Popcorn Progression blocks. Play with hook size, being prepared to add/leave off rounds as you go to get your desired size.
2. Play with colour. See what changing colour on different rows can do for the look of the block
3. Join to your previous blocks if you’ve started joining.
We’ve only got 2 more patterns to go. For the last 2 blocks, we’ll be experimenting with all the different sized stitches and combining a few of the techniques we’ve learnt along the way. See you then!
