Hello dear crochet friends! This week is dedicated to popcorn, not only because the popcorn stitch forms the main basis of this week’s round but because we also munched our way through a bag of popcorn at the cricket. We were lucky enough to see the women’s T20 England v India match at Durham Riverside. Tempted as I was, I didn’t take my crochet to the game, and it was a good choice as the runs came quick and fast;) Hope that you all have fun with these popcorn stitches this week!
This week, we are using popcorn stitch to add the final round of lighter petals to our half dahlias.
Tapestry needle and sharp scissors

The blanket is worked in the round. You do not need to turn your work after each row and you continue working in the same direction as before.
[Stitches written in brackets like this are all worked into the same stitch.]
For the first stitch on each row: Chain 1 to move up to the next round if the round starts with double crochet. Chain 2 if the round starts with a half treble crochet, and chain 3 if the round starts with a treble crochet. These chains count as the first stitch in the row

Round 28: (dc, ch 2, dc) in corner ch-2-sp, 7 dc, ch 3, *skip 1, popcorn into ch-1-sp, ch-1. Repeat this sequence so that you have a popcorn between each of the “petals” from round 27. You should have a total of 5 popcorns per “flower”. Ch 3 between each “flower”. Once you have completed the final flower, ch 3 then dc to end. 4 times. Fasten off.
