Baby Blanket - Popcorn Stitch
Created By: Sandra Williams
Pattern Source: other:

Started in June 2012. Finished August 20, 2012. Woohoo - same year! This is a 43" x 47" blanket made using a modified popcorn stitch. This is bigger than the pattern suggested. Also, I used a half-double foundation stitch as the base rather than making a chain. There is a good video of this on YouTube.
The popcorn stitch was new for me, so I learned as I made the piece, making mistakes along the way. About 12 inches into it, I realized that my current row was only 36 popcorns and the beginning row was 40. Oops. I am not sure how that happened. Apparently, I was not paying attention, several times!
I pulled out 6 inches of rows to get back to what was supposed to be, and counted more carefully as I continued. Additionally, I re-read the pattern and realized that I was doing the beginning of each row incorrectly, which was probably really why I lost popcorns as I progressed initially. The pattern was pretty easy to follow, despite my mistakes. I did re-read it several times. That was easy - it was the shortest pattern I've ever seen!

I had intended to buy a lighter weight yarn, but liked the color of the Homespun multicolor yarn better than those in the baby yarn section at Jo Ann's. I made it for a special young friend of the family who is having her second child soon. Coincidentally, his name is similar to the yarn's color name.
