As I have indicated in a previous post I am intent on experimenting with different crochet stitches and expanding my stitch repertoire as up to now I seem to have concentrated on trebles and variations thereof.
I am quite taken with the popcorn pattern and I have located a tutorial here:
For the single row version
For the double row version:
And a pdf written pattern here. The written pattern provides for one row of the popcorn stitch where in the video tutorial a double row is used although in complementing colours.
Here is the link to the pdf.
Here is a photo of my first attempt - I was quite surprised how quickly I got to grips with the popcorn and I really like this pattern. I just need to work on the tension a little bit and placement of stitches in the centre. I also did an extra row of the popcorn stitch - might have to pull this down as it seems to have worked up tight. Will have to see.
I think that this would make a lovely bedspread - a future project - I have the bulk of the wool but I need to get some UFOs out of the way first.
