COMPACT DOILY ROAD TRIP

Row 7: This row is made up of cute popcorns and half double crochet stitch: one popcorn-2HDC-popcorn. To make the popcorn stitch you chain 3 and then slip stitch in the first chain this makes a little corn that separates each pair of HDC, slip stitch to close row.


Row 8: This row introduces the slip stitch. You want to work in each space between the pair of HDC and in the front.  Please relax your tension, you want to work very loosely, if not you will see your work getting tight, slip stitch to close row.


Row 9: This row introduces a very low tension stitch, please relax and keep your grip light:

Start by yarning over and working in the B-a-c-k of the slip stitch, meaning the Back of the popcorns, please use photos as guide, next yarn over and go under the stitch and repeat 5 times until you have lots of yarn on your hook (first photo) then close with a slip stitch.

Then you want to work in one loop of the slip stitch, close with a slip stitch, then repeat one more time, this gives the space between the fat stitches ( forgive the name, if you have a better name then let me know πŸ˜€)

It is hard to explain but look at the photos for the visual.

This is all for now, if you have any questions, please let me know….

Forgive the picture quality, the lighting is not very good at night 😩
