OVERLAY CROCHET DOILY: DAY 9

Row 26: 3DCC – popcorn – 3DCC – SS – popcorn – SS , repeat.

Today we want to use 3 DCC stitch and the SS to anchor the popcorn stitch.

Tips: the SS is going to anchor your popcorn so you will see it before and after the popcorn. The popcorn is made up of 4 chains and you want to work behind the popcorn from the previous row.

The 3DCC is worked in the two spaces between our treble stitch from previous row. Check photographs.


OVERLAY CROCHET DOILY: DAY 8

For this row we are using the Treble Crochet stitch (TC) the picot stitch, which is 3 chains and close at the starting stitch and the slip stitch as an anchor. 


Tips: the standing treble stitch is a way of starting a row without the single chains: here if you are not changing yarn and here if you are changing yarn.

Row 25: I did a standing Treble Crochet stitch: take your yarn and put a knot on your hook and yarn over two times and do your first TC in the middle space of the previous row add 4 more TC for a total of 5 TC in the same space then do your picot stitch to separate the 2 groups of 5 TC.


Make your second group of 5 TC in the same space for a total of 10 TC separated by 1 picot then you slip stitch in the middle of the 2 DCC from previous row. and repeat.


To end your row you need to pick up the top of the first TC stitch from the first group of 10 TC and anchor. Cut yarn and secure at the back of your doily.



OVERLAY CROCHET DOILY: DAY 7

Row 23: this row is a breeze, all slip stitch  (SS) we are working in the spaces shown in the photograph. Start by tying your yarn three rows down (anywhere) and slip stitch around until you reach the end of the row, slip stitch to close.


This is how it should look when the row is completed:


Cut yarn and secure at the back of your work.

Row 24: for this row we are using the 4 double crochet cluster (DCC) group and single crochet. Start by attaching your yarn at the side of your front post double crochet cluster from previous row and do 4 DCC repeat at the other side, then single crochet three times and repeat, please check photograph.

Nutshell: 4 DCC – 4 DCC – 1 SC – 1 CH – 1 SC -1 CH – 1 SC – 1 CH – repeat, close row with slip stitch.


OVERLAY CROCHET DOILY: DAY 6

Row 22: this row is simple like all the other rows. Start with 2 SC in the same space repeat in the next space, you will notice you can only have 2 pairs before you reach the 3 TC from the previous row, so you yarn over and do your first FPDCC (front post double crochet cluster) then the second and then the third, you will have 4 loops on your hook then yarn over and close your cluster, check photographs.

 Next, start your pairs of SC, you should have 4 pairs before you reach your next 3TC group, repeat until you reach the end, you will only need two pairs of SC to close the row because we had two pairs right at the beginning.

Tips:You need to have 4 pairs of SC (2 SC – 2 SC – 2 SC – 2 SC)  between each front post double crochet cluster (FPDCC) group.


OVERLAY CROCHET DOILY: DAY 5

Row 18 : this row is super easy, you want to chain 3 and anchor with a single crochet (call this a wave) in the third SC from previous row, repeat until you reach the end of the row. Make sure you have 50 waves.


Row 19: chain 3 and do 3 Treble Crochet  (TC) in the wave then chain 3 and anchor in the next wave after anchoring chain 3 and repeat. Tips: 3 TC will be in every other wave. Nutshell: 3 CH and anchor with a SC – 3 CH – 3 TC and anchor, repeat.

Row 20: this row is easy since we are using the half double crochet again. 2 HDC just before the trebles then 1 HDC in the space between the TC and 2 HDC after the trebles for a total of 6 HDC.

Row 21: this is the overlay row it takes a little more concentration, its difficult to explain but if you look at the photos you can understand. We are using the slip stitch SS and working in spaces and around spaces.


Tips: the slip stitch goes up and around the stitches from the previous round, then right under the anchor and around the anchor.
