    Popcorn Work 3 dc in indicated st, drop loop from hook, insert hook from front to back in first dc of the 3-dc group just made, return dropped loop to hook and draw it through the first dc.

    Pop3tog (Popcorn 3 sts together) Dc in each of next 3 sts, drop loop from hook, insert hook from front to back in first dc of the 3-dc group just made, return dropped loop to hook and draw it through the first dc.

    TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION

    Surface Sl stitch

    1. Make a slip knot, but do not place it on hook.

    2. Insert hook from RS to WS through crochet fabric.

    3. Place the slip knot on hook and draw loop to RS (keep beg tail and working yarn on WS).

    4. *Insert hook from RS to WS through fabric a short distance from last insertion location, yarn over, draw loop through fabric and through loop on hook (surface sl st made); rep from * inserting hook, as desired, to create surface pattern.

    5. Fasten off.

    PATTERN STITCH

    Popcorn Pattern (worked over an odd number of sts; beg over an even number of foundation chains)

    Row 1 (WS): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across.

    Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first st, *Popcorn in next st, sc in next st; rep from * to last 2 sts, sc in last 2 sts.

    Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc and Popcorn across.

    Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 2 sts, *Popcorn in next st, sc in next st; rep from * to last st, sc in last st.

    Row 5: Ch 1, turn sc in each sc and Popcorn across.

    Rep Rows 2-5 for Popcorn Pattern.

    NOTES

    1. Popover is made from 5 pieces: Back, Front, 2 Sleeves, and Hood.

    2. All pieces are worked back and forth in rows with 2 strands of yarn held together.

    3. Surface sl stitch and reverse sc are used to create texture.

    4. For those who find a visual helpful, we've included stitch diagrams.
