Instructions

Notes

  1. When instructed to work around a stitch "2 rows below", work in the row numbered 2 less than the current row. For example, if you are working Row 3, a stitch "2 rows below" is in Row 3 – 2 = Row 1.

  2. Work into the back of the popcorn, not the chain-1 stitch or space.

  3. Border is worked in joined, turned rounds.

Special Stitches

  1. Fpdc (front post double crochet) = Yarn over, insert hook from front side of work to back and to front again around next indicated stitch; yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (1 loop on hook). Do not work into the skipped stitch behind the Fpdc.

  2. popcorn = Work 5 sc in indicated stitch, drop loop from hook, insert hook from front to back in first sc of 5-sc group, place dropped loop back on hook, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook, ch 1 to close popcorn. Note The closing chain-1 does not count as a separate stitch, it is part of the popcorn.

  3. reverse sc (reverse single crochet) = Work single crochet in opposite direction from which you would usually work (left to right if you are righthanded and right to left if you are lefthanded). This stitch is also known as crab stitch. It creates a rope-like twisted single crochet edging.

Wow! I really am going to have to find that crochet stitches book or get busy on line looking up these special stitches. I have heard of all of them before but I have little experience with them. So before I get started, I need to practice. I hope my finished project looks as beautiful as this one pictured in green. With blue being a favorite color, that is the only change I will be making.
