Lucy Ring Tutorial

Last night I made this ring playing around with popcorn stitches....
(another painting project)

then I made a couple more...

Now I will show you how to make your own, meet the characters....

First,  how to make a popcorn (pc) stitch, this popcorn is made with 5 dc into the ring, 
then you will drop the loop, and insert your hook in the first stitch
and then add the dropped loop, yo, pull the 2 loops through
closing the stitches together.  

Now let's get started on the ring....

Starting with Yellow, ch 6, join with slst to form ring.
