Popcorn Christmas Garland....

Aha! I have it, Barb came through for all you who asked for the directions for the crocheted popcorn Christmas garland!

So get your needle out and you will have one made for next Christmas, while it is snowing outside.

POPCORN CHRISTMAS GARLAND

50 12 mm faceted beads or round beads (mine are wood, which I like).

6 oz Bernat Baby Coordinates (white)

G crochet hook

4 or 5 crochet hook (one that fits through the bead).

String beads on yarn. Make 5 popcorns. start with chain 4. After the 5th popcorn, make loop long. Go through bead with smaller hook and pull the loop through bead. Continue with 5 more popcorns.

Now...if you don't know how to popcorn stitch go here. And let us know how it goes!
Happy Friday to ya!

I copied down the pattern and hope to give it a try soon. I have some knitting in the works so it maybe later than sooner. It would be a great gift to give some at Christmas. Thank you for sharing!
