The standard popcorn stitch is worked as

Insert the hook in the top of the first double crochet of the 5-dc group.
Pick up the dropped loop.
Draw through the stitch.
Ch1. Now you can "pop" the popcorn to the right or wrong side of the work as needed.

Even crochet tension comes with practice... making the same stitch over and over again until all of your stitches are smooth and uniform. If the beginning edge of your project seems narrower than the rest of your project, this can be a tension problem. Try making the foundation chain and maybe even the first row with a hook that is a size or two larger than the hook you intend to use for the project.

Color changes for the Row Count Breast Cancer Ribbon Afghan Square pattern
are worked in the same way as for my Row Count Purple Heart Coaster pattern: http://www.crochetnmore.com/rowcountpurpleheartcoaster.htm
Just click that link to go to the pattern page, then scroll down and watch the videos.
Single crochet stitches are pretty close to square in size.
If you try working this pattern with any stitch other than a single crochet the
ribbon will not be the right dimension. Good luck!

How to Crochet - Heart Bookmark Pattern Tutorial (Part 1)
Although I like the pattern of your heart, I've found some others to be quite easier than this.
I followed your pattern, hopefully I can get it. Question, where did you find the pattern?
Thanks. I designed this pattern. It's available on the Crochetnmore website for free.
RE: How to Crochet - Heart Bookmark Pattern Tutorial - Part 2
The same stitches that are worked for the first side of each heart are worked in the unworked loops on the opposite side. So the 1dc and 4trc go in the unworked loop of the same chain as the 4trc and 1dc were worked.
This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! Makes for a HUGE BOOKMARK, lol however, I'm sure if you use a smaller hook, you get a smaller bookmark. Valentines day is vastly approaching, need to create several to sell. Thanks so much for your patience in creating this wonderful bookmark.
Thanks! You're very welcome. The actual pattern requires thread and a steel hook... I used large yarn and hook to make it easier for everyone to see what I was doing in the video.
RE: How to Crochet - Lacy Summer Scarf
I wish you would show a finished product. It helps me to see the whole thing. Thanks for the pattern, though.
There's a photo of a finished scarf on the pattern page... link is listed with the video.
RE: How to Crochet - Tips about Baby's ABC's Afghan
Why not add one more row of single crochet before you get into the graph pattern and THAT puts your "puffies" on the correct/right side so you can see them and you don't have to "push" em to the outside or keep flipping your work over to see placement? Also, I have a dickens of a time getting 9 loops on my hook - they always fall off - when I try to make the puff stitch. I, instead, do 4 double cr, (taking 2 off at a time) and then 1 to tighten and on to the next st. Puff just as big, easier.
When I make this afghan I actually add extra rows at the start and extra stitches at the end to incorporate the edging into the pattern so I don't have to add it later. The puff stitches automatically go to the side needed when you follow the graph.
OOOOPS! I goofed. Looking at the graph, I thought there was a space vertically between each puffy - - - there isn't. Go with the pattern!
Hope you enjoy the pattern.
Will this pattern work lefthanded? I don't want to start it and end up with the letters back to front . I would also forget where I'm upto with a chain of 140, so think I would do each square separate the. Crochet them all together
This pattern should work fine if made left-handed. Try reading the graph in the opposite direction.
RE: How to Crochet - Dishcloth Tutorial
Thank you for this tuturial! It was so easy. I actually have made 2 in the last hour! lol love it!
Wonderful video. Easy to follow. Pattern is cute. Thank you for making this video and sharing with all of us!
Re: Doll_Scarf pattern from your website
I am a 7th grade crocheter and I love this pattern. I have come up with a couple different things with your pattern. One is if you make a belt you can put a button on it and put one of the chain 2's around it. The second thing is I up-sized the pattern so I could make a scarf for myself. Lastly I have a 3 month old baby cousin and I took your pattern and made her a head band. This is a very easy pattern and I think it is great for beginners.
<< reply >>Thank you so much for writing. I’m so glad you enjoyed the pattern.
Very nice Lisa! Thank you! God bless Emmy

is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

Kara announced to her family, "Tomorrow morning I'm going to make an old-fashioned breakfast with eggs, ham, biscuits and grits."
Five-year-old Jessica groaned, "But, Mommy, you know I don't like eggs."
Kara then reminded Jessica of all the food the little girl liked that contained eggs.
The next morning, when Jessica walked into the kitchen, Kara said, "Since you are here first, you can decide for the family. How do you want me to cook the eggs?"
Jessica answered, "In chocolate cake, please."
A couple of young boys were fishing at their special pond
off the beaten track. All of a sudden, the game warden
jumped out of the bushes. Immediately, one of the boys threw his rod down and started running through the woods like a bat out of a cave. The game warden was hot on his heels.
After about a half mile, the young man stopped and stooped over with his hands on his thighs to catch his breath, so the game warden finally caught up to him.
"Let's see yer fishin' license, boy!" the warden gasped.
With that, the boy pulled out his wallet and gave the game warden a valid fishing license.
"Well, son," said the game warden, "you must be about as dumb as a box of rocks! You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!"
"Yes, sir," replied the young guy, "but my friend back there, well, he don't have one."
My nieces, Jessica, age five, and Stephanie, age three, were chatting with their mom when Stephanie asked, "Mommy, does God really make rainbows?"
"Of course he does," my sister replied.
Jessica nudged to Stephanie and explained, "Only God has such big crayons!"
Three-year-old Sean, son of Bill, an airline pilot, played with his food on his plate, Bill picked up Sean's spoon, put some peas on it and said, "Zoom, zoom. Open your hangar. Here comes and airplane."
Sean clenched his teeth and then said, "Wrong airport, Daddy."
After living in our house for four years, we were moving out of state. My husband had backed the truck up to our garage door so that we could start loading all of the boxes.
Just then one of our neighbors came walking across the lawn carrying a plate full of muffins.
"Isn't that thoughtful," my husband said to me. "They must have realized that we packed our kitchen stuff."
The neighbor then stuck out his hand and boomed, "Welcome to the neighborhood!"
A guest asked her to name some of the faults.
"To tell the truth," she replied, "I never did get around to listing them; but whenever my husband did something that made me hopping mad, I would say to myself, 'Lucky for him that's one of the 10.'
Busy in the yard one afternoon, my father paused to admire our neighbor's new boat. "She sure is a beauty, Charles," Dad said. Knowing that Charles's wife was conservative when it came to spending money, my father asked, "Was it expensive?"
"The boat itself wasn't so bad," Charles replied. "But the extras really hurt."
"You mean things like water skis, life jackets and trailer?" my father asked.
"No," our neighbor said with a sigh. "I mean the
new carpet, the kitchen cabinets and the living-
In my police uniform and cruiser, I pulled in behind a doughnut shop. I spotted a shabbily
dressed elderly man at the dumpster filling a plastic bag with discarded doughnuts.
My heart went out to him. I got out of the car,
went inside and bought the poor soul a couple
of doughnuts, went outside and handed them to him.
"Here are some fresh ones for you."
"Oh, they're not for me," he said. "I get them here every day to feed the birds."
Billy, our five-year-old grandson, helped do yardwork and was paid $4. Later, his mother brought him to the toy store. Billy looked over a rack of action figures, asked how much they cost, then remarked, "It's a good thing I'm working."
The agricultural school dean was interviewing a freshman."Why have you chosen this career?" he asked.
"I dream of making a million dollars in farming, like my father," replied the freshman.
The dean was impressed. "Your father made a million dollars in farming?"
"No," the student said. "But he always dreamed of it."
My cousin decided it was time that her three sons get baptized, so after several weeks of suitable instruction, one bright Sunday morning they were on their way to church where the three boys, 8, 9, and 11, would have their sins washed away.
The 9 year old seemed particularly pensive that day, and when Ruth Ann asked him what he was thinking about, his reply was in the form of a question.
"Mom, would it be all right if I went first?"
"Sure, why?" she asked.
"Because, I don't want to be baptized in water that has all of my brother's sins floating around in it."
Although a bright and able man, my husband is almost completely helpless when faced with even
the simplest domestic chore.
One day, in exasperation. I pointed out to him that our friend, Bea had taught her husband,
Frank, to cook, sew and do laundry, and that if anything ever happened to Bea, Frank would be
able to care for himself.
Then I said, "What would you do if anything happened to me?"
After considering that possibility for a moment, my husband said happily, "I'd move in with Frank."
