The Popcorn crochet stitch is a fun collection of stitches which create a puffy texture in projects. Some Popcorn stitches use hdc while others use dc. This video tutorial is for the stitch placement of the popcorn stitch as it is worked in the Cabled Blooms Blanket crochet pattern. It uses post stitches before and after the Popcorn which are not actually part of the Popcorn. Be sure to follow the specific pattern as it may vary from this tutorial.

Sometimes it's fun to have a crochet cable texture that is quick and easy to work. The Stand Out Cable crochet stitch is just that! This stitch creates a rope-like look on crochet projects without the fuss of crossing a bunch of stitches.
The Stand Out Cable stitch is used in the Stand Out Cable Chevron Afghan crochet pattern and also the Cabled Blooms Blanket crochet pattern.
Video tutorials below show the basic stitch placement for this stitch. When using the stitch, be sure to read the individual crochet patterns carefully for possible adjustments.

A few years ago I learned how to work foundation chains and it changed my life (and designing) forever. Foundation chains are so much easier to work, give a wonderful stretch and consistency to the beginning of projects and look nice and tidy.
I created some photo tutorials which are available to view on my old blog:

dc foundation chain photo tutorial can be found HERE
Most of my designs use the hdc foundation chain though I will use the sc and dc foundation chains now and then. Knowing that many of you learn well from videos, I've created a video tutorial to show how I work the foundation chains. I hope this will help those who have questions or just haven't brought themselves to learn the technique yet.
Once you learn and get used to working them, you'll not want to use a basic starting chain again!

I used this stitch to design the Loop the Loop Boot Cuff crochet pattern back in February of 2013. Wow, I didn't realize it was that long ago! At first glance, this stitch may be intimidating but once you get the stitch placement down, it's a breeze! I decided to update the pattern and create a few video tutorials to help those who learn better through video.

Take a look at this first video to see how the actual stitch is worked.

Braided Cable Tutorial for the
In 2017, I designed the Braided Cable Block Collection for my nephew which included a Throw, Bolster pillow, Square pillow and Rectangle pillow. It was beautiful and he and his new wife absolutely loved it. The only thing that I didn't like about it was the ridges on the wrong side of the work that you get when working post stitches. I wanted a solution but I knew that it wouldn't be easy to explain in terms that everyone can understand.
I hope that you will try something new if you haven't worked cables before. The Braided Cable is probably the simplest cable to work and once you get the hang of them, they're addicting!

I'm Kate and crochet is my passion. I've been crocheting for 30+ years and as you can see from the selection of designs on my site, blankets are my obsession. I absolutely love creating something that will wrap my love around friends and family when they're in need of comfort.
Having 4 beautiful girls of my own has also inspired many infant, toddler and child size dresses. They are my biggest cheerleaders and have enjoyed wearing the things I've made them.
