#8 Popcorn Flower GRRRRRR

Yesterday after my last post I had an email from someone saying they didn’t like to comment publicly, but did my popcorns look a bit odd??
After affectionately calling her a nasty biatch or similar, to which S said “it’s only crochet”, I had another closer look at the block this morning.
Apart from the centre looking square rather than drawn into a circle the popcorns are a bit flat somehow, maybe just not pulled quite tight enough on the finish?

Have another look too and see what you think?

I also realised that I’ve obviously missed out a row because there aren’t enough holes. I’ve only done three – if you look from the middle outwards -rather than the block in the book which has four.

Yes it is ‘only crochet’ but the point of working my way through Jan Eaton’s 200 Crochet Block book was to learn new skills, techniques and become better, not perfect but improved.

So now you see it, now you don’t…

I’ll be back with a third time lucky #8 shortly. Grrrrr.

  1. I can see what you mean – the book popcorns look a little more ‘raised’. It’s probably just a case of practising – maybe pull tighter when you make the popcorns. Have you tried to start your squares with a magic circle? I always do this to avoid the centre hole. You an pull the magic circle tight and close the hole. It’s just a personal preference but maybe worth a try and see you like it. Just work Round 1 into themagic circle.

I'd love to hear from you...
