Baby Popcorn Afghan

Lion Brand® Babysoft®


15 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Popcorn st. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Popcorn St (multiple of 3 sts)
Foundation Row:
Work 2 dc in 3rd ch from hook, *sk 2 ch, (sc, 2 dc) in next ch; rep from * across, ending with sk 2 ch, 1 sc in last ch.
Row 1: Ch 2, turn. Work 2 dc in first sc, *sk 2 dc, (sc, 2 dc) in next sc; rep from * across, ending with 1 sc in top of turning ch.
Rep Row 1 for Popcorn st.

Ch 108.
Work in Popcorn st until piece measures about 28 in (71 cm) from beginning.
Fasten off.

Ch 4.
Row 1: Work 2 dc in 4th ch from hook.
Row 2: Ch 3, turn, 2 dc in first dc, dc in next dc, 3 dc in top of t-ch.
Row 3: Ch 3, turn. Dc in first dc, dc in each of next 5 dc, 2 dc in top of t-ch.
Row 4: Ch 3, turn. Work 2 dc in first dc, dc in each dc to t-ch, 3 dc in top of t-ch (2 dc inc at each end).
Row 5: Ch 3, turn. Dc in first dc, dc in each dc to turning ch, 2 dc in top of t-ch (1 dc increased at each end).

With wrong sides together, pin Hood to one corner of Afghan.
With right side facing, join yarn with slip st in any corner of Afghan. Work Row 1 of Popcorn st evenly spaced around outside edge of Afghan, working through both thicknesses around Hood to join, working (sc, 2 dc) in each corner, and sk 1 or more sts to end evenly. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

I have made 2 baby afghans with this pattern without the hood. Easy and very nice.
