Merry Christmas! I have a tutorial prezzie for you!

Merry Christmas!!

I decided that as a present to my crocheting blog-readers, I would post up a free tutorial for my Crocheted Popcorn Garlands for one week (until Jan. 1), so grab it while you can before I take the pattern down!

I wanted to crochet my own garland for my own tree, using a pattern that wasn’t too complicated (so I could work on it while vending at Renegade!) but still looked a lot like popcorn. I researched around a little bit to see what patterns were out there, but I just wasn’t quite satisfied with the ones I found, so I Frankensteined my own!


** Happy new year! I have removed the free pattern and will post it to Etsy some time soon. Thank you! πŸ™‚ **

    This looks so cute! Thanks for posting it. I’ll have to add it to my to do list which just keeps getting longer since I got your book. Too many cute ideas to choose just one so I think I’ll eventually do them all.

    Thanks for the pattern. I just got your book for Christmas too- the pear is my favourite. It’s too hot for scarfs in New Zealand a the moment, but will look forward to making it for winter next year.

    Merry Christmas, guys! Sorry I can’t reply directly to your comments like I could before. My reply plug-in broke so we have to get a new one going!

  15. Twinkie Chan says:

    Jess: I don’t make the marshmallow bunny items anymore nor would I post the pattern, since it’s the Peeps’ people’s intellectual property technically I guess. I don’t know. Not sure of exact legal details, but I just don’t want to overstep bounds ;). I am sure you can find other Peeps patterns out there, though!

  16. Jess, LA says:

    Thanks, Twinkie! It’s mostly abpout a peeps obsession a friend of mine and I have. I was working for anither friend at Comic-Con and saw your tatoo, and asked to take a picture.

    We don’t have pink popcorn down here in LA. Now, I can make some.

  17. Amie says:
