Popcorn Floral Dishcloth – Crochet Tutorial – Quick and Easy

Popcorn Floral Dishcloth – Crochet Tutorial – Quick and Easy



hello everyone this is Linda and welcome back to creative grandma today's crochet tutorial is going to be for the popcorn floral dishcloth and this is pattern number 611 I have several samples to show you here today you can use three colors four colors five colors you can use as many colors as you wish now for today's video I'm going to use three colors and I'm going to make up this dishcloth here but I'm gonna change the colors up a little bit so let me show you my samples and again all my samples today have been made using the premier home cotton by premier yarns it's 85 percent cotton 15 percent polyester and that extra little bit of polyester really helps make these dishcloth stay durable keeps the colors brighter longer and just I just really love this yarn now you can use any cotton yarn you prefer but this is my preferred brand so here is my first sample I just made this with the white popcorn flower I put green here for my leaves pink in the outer edge and then a white border so that's my first sample my second sample again I used white for the popcorn flower and then brought the white out because I thought that really popped a little bit more when you see these three here they're all made with the white Center bringing that white to the outside it just really pops the colors on the inside so that was my pink one here's my blue sample with that little bit of darker green and then I have that red sample with the sage and then I chose not to use white but used a cream color with that pastel blue and lavender so that gives you a little bit of different look if you don't want those bright whites here's a sunny yellow with a little bit of pink and lime green and then here's another pink one let me show you the difference between the two pink ones how when you add the white Center and then this is the yellow so if you have a lot of leftover cotton yarn then these are excellent patterns to use up some of that extra cotton yarn because it does not take much for the center if you choose to use a different color for the center it doesn't take much to make the leaves or the flower so just a great way to use up those scraps so let me measure these should be about eight and a half inches in diameter from point of the shell to the point of the shell this one's actually about eight and a half inches this one's a little closer to nine about eight and three quarters so it just depends your tension so about eight and a half inches across to nine inches depending on your gauge gauge is really not important with this pattern it's a guide but it's really not that important so for today these are the three colors I'm using this is color number 3808 pastel pink and then I'm using this bright white this is color number 3801 white and then this beautiful sage green color number 38 – 1-5 now I give the color name and I give the color number and the reason I do that is sometimes some of my subscribers the only way to get the yarn is they have to order it online when I get really detailed and give the color name and the color number and all that pertinent information it's because some websites will use the color name and not the color number and other websites we use the color number or not the color name so it does get confusing sometimes when you are online trying to order those yarns so these are the three colors I'm using today you're also going to need a size H eight five millimeter crochet hook so choose your colors choose your yarns again I'm only using three colors you can use as many colors as you wish so I'll be right back and we'll get this project started I have my yarn attached to my hook I just tie a double knot you can start it any way you wish we're going to start with the chain four so yarn over your hook pull it through the loop on your hook that's your first chain yarn over pull through that's to yarn over pull through that's three yarn over pull through that's four you're going to skip the first chain you're going to come down to the fourth chain from hook or the last chain from your hook and we're going to slip stitch yarn over pull through that chain and pull through the loop on your hook what we've done is we created a small ring and we're going to be working right into the center of this ring for the center of our dishcloth I'm going to take this little piece of yarn here that's leftover from starting my chain I'm going to hold it right up against my work and I'm going to work through the center of the ring and around that loop of yarn so to start round one we're going to single crochet in the ring and chain two and we're going to do that seven times now we do not chain when we start this round we're just going to insert our hook right into the center of that ring front to back and work your first single crochet yarn over pull through that ring you have two loops on your hook yarn over and pull through two loops that's your single crochet you're going to chain two one two and we're going to do that a total of seven times so that's our first of the seven we need to do that six more times insert into the center of the ring work a single crochet chain two one two we need to do that five more times insert into the center of the ring single crochet chain two so that's three of seven insert into the center of the Ring work a single crochet chain two that's four of seven you can take and grab a hold of that chain and just pull those stitches back to make room for the rest insert into the center of the Ring we're a single crochet chain to insert into the center of the Ring work a single crochet chain two we need to do that one more time insert into the center of the ring work a single crochet and chain two one two I'm going to pull my hook out I'm going to make a double stitch count you can count one single crochet or you can count by the chain two spaces there's one two three four five six and um with that seventh chain to space now we're going to go up and we're going to join with a slip stitch into the top of that beginning single crochet here's your beginning single crochet insert under the top two loops of that stitch and slip stitch yarn over pull through that stitch and pull through the loop on your hook I'm going to go ahead and fasten off my work I usually chain two one two I take my hook pull up and pull that yarn out grab that yarn take your two fingers just pull down and it not your work now for round two we're going to be working into the chain two spaces only so what I'll do is I'll hold this yarn right up against my work and I'll be working right over top of this end to weave that end in so now I'm going to grab my pink and we're going to get our pop flowers started I have my pink and when I join I leave about a five inch length and I just hold my new yarn right up against the old color that I fastened off I do not tie it on now if you prefer you can tie it right here where you fastened off to secure it I usually secure my work when I'm all finished that's why I leave such a long end and then that gives me enough yarn to maneuver with the yarn needle to knot it and weave it in the ends I'm going to insert into that very first chain to space where we fastened off here insert into that first chain to space and pull your new color through now for our popcorn stitches in this round usually a popcorn stitch has 5 double crochet but we're only working four double crochet into our popcorn stitches the first popcorn stitch is made differently because we have to chain three for that first popcorn to start our round so let's begin you're going to chain three one two three you're going to yarn over insert into that same space yarn over pull through that space yarn over pull through two yarn over and pull through two you just made a double crochet we need to make two more double crochet yarn over insert into that same chain two space front to back and you can see my hook is going underneath those strands and that helps weave in those ends work a double crochet yarn over insert back into that same space and work a double crochet so we have our beginning chain three and then we have three double crochet you're going to pull up one your hook take your hook out come back to the top of that beginning chain three insert your hook into the top of that stitch and then bring your hook over and insert into your draw flute tighten up your loop and then you're going to pull that loop through the other loop on your hook and it crunches that together and makes a nice little popcorn stitch you're going to chain two one and two now we're going to work a second popcorn stitch all into this same chain two space we're going to work four double crochet and then form our popcorn stitch so yarn over the hook insert back into that same space work four double crochet there's one yarn over insert back into that same space work your second double crochet yarn over insert back into that same space work your third double crochet yarn over insert back into that same space and work your fourth double crochet take your hook and pull up a loop and then come back four stitches one two three four you're going to insert into that first double crochet of that four double crochet group insert back into that drop loop tighten up your yarn and then pull that loop through the loop on your hook your popcorn stitch is formed and you're going to chain two one two and we're going to do that in each chain two space around but now we do not chain three for that first double crochet we only do that in the beginning of the round so now we're going to find our next chain two space this is the start of the repeat so if you need help you're going to click back to this point of the video where I say this is the start of the repeat of Round two you're going to yarn over insert into that next chain two space work four double crochet there's one two three and four pull up one in your loop take your hook out return to the first double crochet of that four double crochet group insert into the top of that stitch insert back into your drop loop tighten up your yarn and pull your drop loop through the loop on your hook your popcorn stitch is formed you're going to chain two one two and then we're going to do it one more time into that same chain two space yarn over the hook insert back into that same chain two space and work four double crochet one to three and for pull up the loop take your hook out return to that first double crochet of that four double crochet group insert into the top of that first double crochet insert back into that drop loop tighten up your yarn and then pull the drop loop through the loop on your hook your popcorn stitch is made and you're going to chain two one two that is the end of the repeat so go ahead and repeat you're going to work one popcorn stitch chain two two times in each chain two space around so that's one popcorn stitch chain two one popcorn stitch chain two in each chain two space around I'll meet you at the end of round two and show you how to join I'm over at the end of round two and this is what your work should look like you have a total of fourteen popcorn stitches you have seven chain two spaces you have two popcorn stitches and to chain two spaces in each chain two space around so that's two four six eight ten twelve fourteen popcorn stitches and you should have fourteen chain two spaces in between so now we're going to go ahead and fasten off and join we're going to come up to the top of this beginning popcorn stitch so here's our popcorn stitch it's a little hard to see but I'm coming right up to the top of my popcorn stitch and I'm going right down through the top center of that stitch and out through the back and I'm going to slip stitch yarn over the hook pull it back through that stitch and pull it through the loop on your hook I'm going to fasten off i chained to one to pull up my hook and pull that yarn out grab that yarn take your two fingers and pull down and it knocks it now when you look on the back of your work if you worked your stitches over those ends you can see it weaved it in so you just want to tug just a little bit to tighten up those stitches so you don't see the white where you start it over here and then you're just going to trim that off just make sure that you don't cut into your other stitches and this is the nice thing because it leaves your ends in for you when you're crocheting those stitches over the end so I'm just going to leave this hang so when I'm working stitches that you can see this color then I let it hang on the back and I weave that in with the yarn needle in through my stitches so you can't see it so if you were working stitches and you can see this yarn going through and a different color over top then don't try to do it that way to leave it hang and weave it in when you're done so now I'm going to grab my green my sage color I have my green we're getting ready to start round 3 and round 3 we will be working the shell stitches here and this is what I call the leaves this is the center of my flower the popcorn creates the flower and then these shell stitches create the leaves to our flower so I'll be using the sage green now I'm going to let my pink hang I'm not going to work over that I'm going to leave that in when I'm all finished with my dishcloth I'm just going to take my green leave at least 5 or 6 inches and again you can tie your yarn on to the beginning here where you fastened off if that makes you feel better and secures your work I use the method where I just pull my yarn through and secure it when I'm finished I'm going to insert my hook into that first chain two space of the round we finished off here this is the first chain two space we're only working in the chain two spaces and we're skipping the popcorn stitches I'm going to pull my new color through and I'm going to start with a chain three one two and three we're going to work a double crochet chain two and two double crochet into that same beginning chain two space yarn over the hook insert into that same beginning chain two space and work a double crochet you're going to chain two one two and now we're going to work two more double crochet all into this beginning chain two space yarn over the hook insert into that same chain two space and work two double crochet one yarn over insert back into that same space and work your second double crochet you're going to chain one and you're going to skip the next chain two space now

triple crochet two rounds below right into that space here between the current shell and that next Shell right into that space go ahead if you need help click back on the video repeat that pattern around I will meet you at the end of round seven and show you how to join I'm over at the end of round seven this is what your dishcloth should look like we're going to go up and join and then we're going to do the fun part and I'll show you how to weave in those ends so let me zoom back up we're going to go over and count up to the top of that beginning chain three one two three insert your hook into the top of that chain three yarn over pull that chain and pull through the loop on your hook again when I fasten off try to leave a longer length maybe five or six inches so you have enough to maneuver with the yarn needle chain two one two pull up on your hook pull that yarn out grab that pc yarn use your fingers pull down and it not your work so let me show you the finished dish cloth this is what it looks like very pretty bringing that inside color back out to the edge at bright crisp white just makes it pop so now I'm going to show you what we all love and that's weaving in those ends you're going to make sure all your ends are on the backside of your work this is the right side you're going to flip it over oh goodness don't we just hate these ends so let me zoom up and just show you a little what I do you may have your own method and that's fine just continue using your own method I get all these out of my way and then I'll pick one I'll start at the center down here I didn't leave enough yarn it's a little short so you have a little bit harder time that's why I say it's better to have a longer end than a short end so let me just get that weaved in now this already has a double knot so I do not have to knot it all I have to do is weave it in so what I do is I make sure I match my leftover yarn with the exact color you don't want to weave it in the green or the white because you're going to see it the other thing about dish claws is you really need to make sure it has a double knot because you're using these hard you're going to be using these washing dishes they're going to be one like this and they're just going to be really used hard so you really want to make sure these ends are really weaved in extremely well I'm just going to take my yarn needle and what I do is I go down that stitch right down through the loops of that stitch and I work my way down here to the base of all these other stitches so what I do now my ends really short I'm just going to go right through and under the post of these stitches here at the base I'm just going to pull them through several stitches and then what I'm going to do is I'm going to just jump one stitch and I'm going to come back in the opposite direction I came this way I'm just going to jump over one stitch and then I'm going to go back underneath those stitches and work back over and come out I really wish this end was just a little bit longer for me and then what I do is I'll turn and do it one more time I jump like one stitch I'm having a hard time because my yarns too short and then I just go under a couple stitches just make sure it's nice and snug and secure and going in and out several times just really helps secure that yarn you're going to take your scissors and then you're going to trim the end and you're just going to continue doing that now let me find an end that's not double knotted one that I started with so now I'm going to show you what I do if the yarn was started the the yarn when you pull it through to start your round so this did not have a knot so all I did was pull this through so there's really nothing to secure it so what I'm going to do is join this end and when you look at your work when you look at these ends that are weaved in now see this one you can see this knot right here this has the knot so I don't have to worry about knotting that I just weave it in this one has a knot where I end it off so all we have to do is weave that in you have to worry about the ones that you cannot see the knot these are the ones that you have to not before you weave in to secure that work so what I do I'm just going to try to show you the best way I can so what I'm going to do with this is I want to get up here where these are a little loose so I'm just going to weave my yarn I'm going to go across the top of this and underneath the center of that and then what I'm going to do is I'm turning my work as I do this be I'm trying to maneuver it you want to get to where these stitches are really secure where there's more work done not where it's nice and open and airy so I think I'll just go over here to this I'm going right here there's a little piece of yarn here I'm going right through that loop of that stitch and what I do is before I pull that all the way through see how there's a loop here I take my hook and I go back through that loop and that creates my knot then just use your fingers and pull that down make sure it's snug don't let it have a big loop in there you just want to take it down and form the knot so it's kind of invisible and it works into the stitches and then what you're going to do is you're just going to weave it in and out through those stitches and then I go down through and it's very important take the extra time make sure you get that weaved if you have to turn your work turn your work bring it back down through you're going to make sure you go in and out and back and forth a couple times just to secure that stitch and then I'm going to go up through here because the stitches are tighter it's always best to work through the stitches that have the tighter whoops I lost my end of my yarn so let me put this back on real quick and I'll just finish this one and then like I said these stitches are really loose so if you just move your hook in and out through those they may come out so you actually want to go through parts of the stitch that are extremely tight so this part you can see the stitch is tight and then I'm just going to go right up through that stitch underneath the white and then you just fasten off and make sure you do not cut into the other stitches and it makes it invisible to see you cannot see where my ends are I'm going to finish weaving in the rest of my ends and then I'll be back and show you the front side and the back side I'm back this is the front of our dishcloth congratulations you've done a wonderful job when you measure it from point to point it measures eight and a half inches so right on and when you weave in your yarn ends this is what it looks like in the back you see no yarn and so wonderful so thank you everybody for stopping by and

  2. Glenda, can you use these for hot pads to put under a dish that maybe just came out of the oven. I love the look but didn't know if they was thick enough. Any suggestions?
