- Any worsted weight yarn (4)
- Darning needle
- Chain (ch)
- Slip Stitch (slst)
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Popcorn Stitch (pc)
The popcorn stitch is formed by double crocheting 5 times in the same stitch, removing the hook from your 5th double crochet loop, inserting it through your first double crochet stitch and grabbing the 5th double crochet loop through the back and pulling it through. You will then fasten the popcorn stitch off by chaining one. Please refer to this video tutorial for guidance. You can do as many rounds as desired with this pattern. My example shown above has 4 rounds.
Round #1: Create a slip knot and ch 2. Sc 8 times in the chain next to the hook and join with a slst forming a ring. (8 stitches)
Round #3: Chain 3 and form a popcorn in the same stitch. Close the popcorn stitch by chaining 1. (you will add one more popcorn stitch to this section at the end of the round). *Create two popcorn stitches between the next two petals from the second round. You will insert your hook under the chain that closed off your popcorn stitches. Repeat all the way around and finish off the round by adding one more popcorn stitch between the petals where the first popcorn stitch was made. Join with a Slst into the ch 3 of the first popcorn stitch. (16 popcorn stitches=16 petals). Refer to the image below to see where to insert your hook for the two popcorn stitches.
As usual, once you have reached your desired size, weave in your ends and you’re done!
