Notes

Yarn

  • Not a huge fan. The ribbon shape ends up folding or not in a way that looks messy. I’d rather have done this project in a yarn with more loft and halo to evoke bird feathers and to be more friendly for a kids room. Oh well. Still cute.
  • Ran out of 1 of 2 balls just a few repeats before the end, ugh.

Measurements & Gauge

  • Frame width 2.5” x ~250”
  • Gauge: 2.5” = 7 sts in st st on 9 mm needles; final project came out ~3-4” per 6-row repeat (not 12-row rep).

Pattern

  • CO 7 sts
  • Note: slip first st of every row in pattern
  • Rows 1-5: st st
  • Row 6: sl, k, popcorn, k4
  • Note: For a tighter popcorn, on the row following each popcorn, pick up and p the second slipped st from the end of the popcorn together w the popcorn st.
  • Rows 7-11: st st
  • Row 12: sl, k4, popcorn, k2
  • Rep rows 1-12 about 42x.

Popcorn stitch as in Popcorngenser with a sl st modification:

  • kfbf
  • k 3 rows st st (p-k-p), slipping the first st of ea row in - pattern
  • sl2 k1 p2sso

Construction

  • Hot glued the inner and outer edges only.

  • Grafted the ends together.
