Number 2. Cat tie.

The kitten wears it better than a Victoria secrets model. This is a free pattern, and you can find it here.

Number 1. And The Winner Is…..

I fell in love with this lil pug and the pompom hat. I am sure if you have a pug you would be very tempted to try this on. The pattern is simple and quick to make. It is even 100 % free. You can find the pattern here.

Popcorn stitches

How to Crochet Popcorn stitches tutorial

popcorn stitch

A popcorn crochet stitch is formed when several trebles (UK) (or longer stitches) are worked in the same place, then the stitch is completed by joining the first stitch with the last to make a ‘cup’ shape.

  1. Work several trebles in the same place.
  2. Reinsert the hook in the top of the first treble of the group the way picture shows, and pull yarn through the loops to close the popcorn.
