Quite a while ago I was trying out some new crochet stitches and came across the popcorn stitch. It was actually easier to do and easier to vary than I thought it might be. I thought it looked really tricky until I tried it! It’s actually quite effective in a number of ways and I’ve used it in lots of makes.
It works quite well as an edging on hats such as my baby Santa hat. I’ve also made it to create a Christmas snowball tea cosy. The pink hat is one that I made for my little girl. I mixed popcorn stitches in with various others to give a textured look to the hat.
One of the things I do like to use it for is making woolly sheep!
I’m starting to collect quite a flock of them now. I’ve got tea cosies, mug cosies and toilet roll covers. They just look so cute!
I’m trying to decide what sort of sheep to make next. Any suggestions?
