Welcome to the first of our Throw of the Month series! This month’s project is the Snowflake Throw. Each month we will have a new themed throw to do. Each throw will have a tip or two in the blog, as well as a giveaway to win the yarn to make the throw. Keep reading for the tip and to access the giveaway! Use the hashtag #throwmonth to talk about the series.
One of the special stitches for this pattern is a popcorn. It is a handy stitch that you will come across in other crochet patterns. Make sure you read the instructions as popcorns can be made slightly differently in different patterns; they may start with a different number of stitches, for example, or by using treble crochet instead of double crochet.
A popcorn is made by working several stitches into one stitch, then pulling them together so that they will pop out of the fabric. It is a similar idea to a bobble but they are not made the same way.
Step 1: Place four double crochets into the same stitch.
Step 2: Take the loop off the hook.
Step 3: Insert the hook from front to back in the top of the first double crochet then put the loop back on the hook.
Step 4: Pull the loop through the stitch on the hook. The 4 double crochets will pop out.
The top row of this sample shows 5 popcorn stitches across a piece of crochet, with one regular double crochet between each popcorn.
