Hello everyone, what a lovely, sunny week it’s been!! I hope you enjoyed week 11, thank you for all the fab photos you’ve sent through, here’s a few!
Everywhere I look this week I see beautiful tulips in all kinds of vibrant spring colours. So this week it seemed that it HAD to be the tulip stitch again!!
59- kelly green. 60- violet, 61- citron
Apologies but I still haven’t managed to catch up with my vintage blanket, I hope to do that this week with the children back at school! But my colour choices will be: 59- storm blue, 60- shrimp, 61- citron.
Mini Popcorn– make 3 trebles in same space, take hook out of loop, put hook through first of these stitches then pull finishing loop through this stitch.
Round 59– join new colour in any ch2 corner space, ch4 in same space make (1tr, ch2, 1tr, ch1, 1tr) , #skip 2 stitches, *in next stitch make (1tr, ch1, 1tr), skip 2 stitches**, repeat from * to ** all the way along the edge of the square, in corner space make (1tr, ch1, 1tr, ch2, 1tr, ch1, 1tr)##, repeat from # to ## twice more and from * to ** all the way along the last edge, sl st to 3rd of 4ch, fasten off (66 ‘v’ stitches, including the 2 in the corners)
TIP: for round 59 make sure you work into every 3rd stitch, you will not be working into spaces.
Round 60– join new colour in any ch2 corner space, in same space make (1 mini popcorn, ch2, 1 mini popcorn), #*ch2, make 1mini popcorn in next ch1 space**, repeat from * to ** along edge of square, ch2, in corner space make (1 mini popcorn, ch2, 1 mini popcorn)##, repeat from # to ## twice more, then from * to ** along last edge, ch2, slip stitch to first mini popcorn, fasten off (68 popcorns along each edge)
