I have a new crochet love. It’s the popcorn stitch.
Oh, the texture! Oh, the touch! Oh, the yarn usage! With this stitch, I have made a Raspberry Bag (although mine is more Scarlet than Raspberry).
This bag took around three balls of Lincraft Cosy Wool. This yarn goes on special fairly often, so it’s worth waiting for a sale. I enjoyed working with it and my 6.5mm bamboo hook. It’s lined with some groovy button printed fabric, which you can just see peeking out in the photo below.
I am now keenly investigating other bag patterns that involve popcorn stitch. I currently have two contenders, the Taupe Bag and the Dolce Tote. Although I am also sorely tempted to crochet the Thundersnow Bag, which doesn’t involve the popcorn stitch but does involve wonderful texture. So many choices!
