STEP BY STEP FOR double crochet stitch
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR PROJECT?
Your project measurements depend on the meter you use and your skill level. But take into account that while learning to sew popcorn it could be around:
To get started make the foundation chain:
Sew the popcorn stitch with your favorite yarn, adjusting the needle size to the weight of the yarn.
Your starting chain should have an odd number of stitches. The example above started with 19 chain points.
Starting with the second chain on the needle, make 1 single crochet in each stitch.
Get the first popcorn point
second line two
* Make 1 low stitch and 1 popcorn stitch. Repeat throughout the line. Finish with 1 low stitch.
To form a popcorn stitch, crochet 5 double crochets in the same stitch. It should look like a fan or a shell.
Remove and insert the hook
So you don’t have to worry about losing it pull the active loop on its hook and it will look big. Then remove the hook from the loop.
Count five double crochet stitches back and insert the needle into the first double crochet you made.
Connect Active Loop
With the needle still in the first double crochet, go through the loose active loop. Once the loop is around the hook, you can tighten the loop again.
close the popcorn point
Thread the loop you are making through the loops of the first double crochet to close and finish the popcorn stitch.
A finished popcorn stitch should look like a tiny cup made from double crochets.
Make a complete line of popcorn stitch
Finish the second row of popcorn stitch, alternating between single crochet and popcorn stitches. You should finish with a single crochet.
The next row should be crochet single.
When making the popcorn stitch you’ll repeat rows one and two, so after working a row of popcorn it’s time to add another row.
Make a low stitch in each popcorn stitch.
It’s easy to identify where to insert the needle in the single stitches on the first row, but you may need to look for the correct stitch in the popcorn stitches. The top of the popcorn dots don’t look like small Vs, but they are the straightest dots among the Vs.
Did you like it? I hope you produce many beautiful pieces from this point which is cute and cozy!
Your practice at this point will make it produce faster over time. Also, don’t forget that you’ll need a lot of yarn to make it. Try to make sure there will be enough wire for the piece you are producing.
Despite not being such a difficult point, it does take longer than other less elaborate ones. But for sure the end result will leave you overjoyed. They will be beautiful pieces.
The popcorn stitch is similar to the bobble stitch, but the process is a little different. Pay close attention and understand which point you need for a project and don’t think they are the same.
After producing the first piece, I’m sure you’ll fall in love. There are countless possibilities and I’ve seen masterpieces that can become beautiful gifts, for personal use and even a source of income for those who, like me, are enchanted by the countless options that this point gives us.
Go ahead and hook the hook to start a new step in your crocheting life!
