A Christmas Crochet Project – Popcorn Garland!

For a sweet Christmas crafting project, team member Tanya is offering up her ‘recipe’ for this cute crochet popcorn garland!

Ingredients: 8 ply wool and a 4mm crochet hook

I remember my grandmother making me a bedspread when I was a young girl using popcorn stitch, and I felt inspired to make this popcorn garland for the Christmas tree. Using 100% wool means that the garland will be safe around the lights on the tree, and it can be hand washed and stored for many years to come.

I do 12 chain st (the last 2 I count as a treble) then I do 6 trebles into the 10th chain, BUT, I do not complete each treble. You yarn over and pull through once and then leave the next sitting on the needle, so you end up with seven stitches sitting along the hook. Then, you yarn over and pull through all of them together… this forms a popcorn. Of course, you can vary how many chain stitches between and how many trebles to determine the size of your popcorn, but this is what I found effective and manageable. Enjoy!
