Why not we crochet together? I’ll help, you jump along but let me warn you, crocheting is highly addictive!
For this granny square which I like to call NO PLACE LIKE HOME, I used 100% cotton yarn and 3 mm crochet hook.
The tutorial is written in US terms.
Single crochet - sc
Double crochet - dc
Slip stitch - sl st
So, grab your hook and some yarn and go for it!
Chain 6 and slip stitch into the first chain to make a ring. Ch 1. Work 8 sc. Sl st into the ch 1 (picture 1).
Sl st to the first sc. Work one popcorn. To make the popcorn stitch: work 5 double crochet (dc) stitches in the same stitch. First chain 3 (picture 2).
Then work another 4 dc (total 5dc – picture 3). Drop the loop from your hook. Insert your hook from front to back under the top 2 loops of the first double crochet of the group (picture 4).
Grab the dropped loop with your hook and pull it through the stitch (picture 5). Ch2, repeat to the end, total 8 popcorns + 8 ch2 spaces.
Sl st to the top of the first popcorn (this is where you slip stitch goes – picture 8).
At this very stitch work one popcorn (picture 7), ch1. In chain two space of the previous round crochet another popcorn. Repeat to the end, total 16 popcorns. (pictures 9 and 10) Fasten off.
Add another color in any ch 1 space from previous round. Work 3dc (picture 11), repeat 2 more times (picture 12).
To make corner space work 3dc+3ch+3dc . Repeat to the end.
One possibility is to work only first 8 pop corn stitches in one color and the rest of the square in same color. Like this.
I hope I helped. Should you have any difficulties let me know. Just leave the comment.
