Week 29 and this week we return to a couple of rows of ‘V-Stitch’ – a nod to deck chairs or the pitched roofs of a row of beach huts and then we end with Popcorn Stitches… like sand and pebbles! 🙂 🙂
And here’s this weeks round-up from over on Instagram
So at the end of Row 123 you should have joined with a new colour and made 3ch which counts as the first tr (US dc) of this next row. Remember it’s UK crochet terminology…
Row 124 Miss next st, 2tr in next st, continue with (miss 1 st, 2tr in next st) to end finishing with 1 tr in final st of row and join with a new colour at end of final st, 3ch, turn (89 groups of 2tr with 1 tr at each side)
We are now creating V’s so inserting hook in-between the sts from previous row…
Row 125 Miss 1 st, continue with (2tr in-between the sts from previous row) to end, 1tr in final st, join with a new colour at end of final st, 3ch, turn
And now for the Popcorns… remember I did a YouTube Tutorial for these rows…
Popcorns are worked differently to Bobbles and protrude more and don’t flatten easily so they’re perfect for resembling sand castles and pebbles!
Here’s how to make a Popcorn: 4tr in the next st, drop the loop from the hook, insert hook from front to back (when RS (Right Side) of work is facing) or from back to front (when WS (Wrong Side) of work is facing) in first tr of 4-tr group, pick up dropped loop and pull through the first tr.
Row 126 (RS) (1 Popcorn in next st, 1tr in each of next 3 sts) and repeat to end, there will be 2 tr sts after the final popcorn made, join with a new colour at end of final st, 3ch, turn (45 Popcorns with 1 tr at start of row and 2 tr at end of row)
Row 127 (WS) 1tr in each of next 3 sts, (1 Popcorn in next st, 1tr in each of next 3 sts) and repeat to end, joining with a new colour at end of final st, 4ch, turn (44 Popcorns with 4 tr at start of row and 3 tr at end of row)
