How to Crochet: Really Lazy Popcorn Stitch

Dedri from the blog Look At What I Made says the following about this really interesting pattern / tutorial:

The Popcorn Stitch is one of my favourite stitches, but I really dislike having to remove my hook from my work every time I make a Popcorn Stitch.  A little while ago, I came up with a lazy way of doing it.  While I was playing with the Lazy Popcorn, I came up with another, even lazier, method:  The Really Lazy Popcorn Stitch.

Okay but like, imagine it.

They’ve been in love since they were twelve and too young to know what love meant.

At that time, they thought love meant sharing popsicles and buying each other stuffed animals and watching Finding Nemo on their living room couch, passing a bowl of popcorn back and forth.

They were best friends, and spent every waking moment at the others side, and even time couldn’t change that.

They got older, and their feelings got stronger, until one night Junior year, they found themselves making out in the school bathroom during the Homecoming football game.

They didn’t talk about it for three weeks.

At least, not until it happened again in the back of a friend’s pickup.

Best friends turned into more, and more turned into lovers.

Love became messy makeout sessions in bathrooms, quiet arguments in empty bedrooms and drinking too much at parties neither approved of just to get a rise out of one another.

They get married fresh out of high school- everyone tells them it won’t last, that they’re too young, that they’ve made some horrible mistake and they know that maybe, in the future, that might be true. But right now, still baby-faced and innocent, naive to the hurt of the world, it’s all they need.

They prove everyone wrong.

Years later, as they’re celebrating their fiftieth anniversary, they realize what love means- it means sharing popsicles even though they both have their own, buying each other stuffed animals that neither of them really needs, and watching Finding Nemo on their living room couch, passing a bowl of popcorn back and forth even though they both complain about the kernels getting stuck in their teeth.

Love means messy makeout sessions in their bathroom just before they take a shower, quiet arguments in empty bedrooms when they can’t decide what movie to watch before bed, and drinking too much at gatherings neither approved of just to get a rise out of one another so that they could leave early and go cuddle at home.

Simply put, they learned that love meant dealing with all of those things and never wanting to stop.

Love meant wanting to do all those things forever, for that one special person, and that was that. 

I actually liked this one better than the garlic bread popcorn! It’s so good, but it doesn’t have a strong pizza flavor. This has a very mild flavor, and it’s slightly spicy. I really liked this one and I’ll definitely be making this one again!
