Slanting popcorn crochet motif – Your eco-friendly blanket


Let’s create a precious crochet blanket together! We have already worked the first five motifs, a couple with heart and star, a two-tone weaved motif, a waffle stitch, and a slanting square stitch. Now, we take My Earth yarn in brown shade and let’s learn the slanting popcorn stitch together. Puffy groups of elongated stitch slant and alternate on each row, creating a soft relief. Motif always measures 10×10cm. So, let’s get going!
