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.

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:
hdc foundation chain photo tutorial can be found HERE
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.

Star Kitchen Towel Top Crochet Pattern
One of the things I like to make for quick neighbor, teacher and friend gifts is crocheted towels. They are a great way to let someone know you're thinking about them and that they're worth your time since it's handmade. Typically, a batch of homemade treats accompany the towels in a small gift basket along with a little note of appreciation. Another cute and useful addition to the gift basket is a Recipe Card Holder. I recently posted about how I make the recipe card holders HERE on my blog.
Quick, easy and made with love!
I HAVE to have towels hanging in my kitchen for easy access and staying organized. If I know my towel is hanging on the stove, I don't have to worry about it being knocked on the floor or getting something on it that I don't want. It's easier to keep clean. This is also a simple way to switch out kitchen decor for various holidays or seasons.

Rope Edging Crochet Border
Do you ever debate over adding a crochet border to your afghan projects? Sometimes you just need a simple single crochet around it to tidy it up. Sometimes, a nice lace pattern adds just the right touch. Borders can be simple and yet add enough to the project that you don't want to go without them.
When working textured crochet designs, I always add a border but often struggle when deciding which style to choose. I don't want the the border to take away from the texture, I want it to compliment it.
