Popcorn Flower

29 Jan

Popcorn Flower

Today’s square: Popcorn Flower
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Jan Eaton
Hook: H
Yarn: TLC Essentials Dk Thyme, Claret.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I switched books and worked a square from the “200 Crochet Blocks” book. I omitted rounds 6 and 7 to keep it at 6 inches. And I decided those CH4 corners were just too open, so on round 4 I started making them CH2. This square works up really fast.

    The popcorn puffs in the magic circle look like they’d be a bit of a challenge to make. Well, done!

      Honestly, I never use the magic circle to start any square, even if it’s called for. I just don’t seem to be dexterous enough to handle it! 😀

        I chain 4 or 5, sl to join to form a circle, that’s what I call the magic circle that I begin some of my squares with. How do you start the inner ring/circle for stitches?

          Oh! I just call that a chain join and what I always use. To me the magic circle is that beginning technique where you sort of crochet into an unformed loop then “magically” pull it tight to close up the circle. A nice example is here

            You’re right that’s what a magic circle is in the general-crochet world. I can honestly say that I’ve never successfully accomplished using that method.
            I figure any starting point with a simple ring of stitches should is magic too because of all the items and projects that come from it. Maybe we should make up a name for the ‘ring of stitches’ because of it’s alchemy like power to transform strings of yarn into such magnificent things. 😉

              I like that concept! I’m all for crochet innovation but sometimes the tried and true methods just can’t be beat! “Chain 4, join to create the RING OF POWER!” 😀
