Tulip stitch is perfect for decoration, in a candle or a pot for example. It could be also used for a blanket, a scarf or a hat.
You may use different colors for the stem, the flower or the body ground. You can even change flower color at each round in order to create a multicolor tulip field.
STITCHES ABD TECHNIQUES USED
CHAIN (ABBREVIATION ch)
YO and pull the yarn through the loop on the hook.
SINGLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: sc)
Insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (2 loops on your hook), YO again and pull through both loops on the hook in one go.
DOUBLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: dc)
YO, insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook in one go (2 loops remain on the hook), YO again and pull through the remaining 2 loops on the hook.
POPCORN STITCH (ABBREVIATION: PC)
Popcorns are a number of completed stitches worked into the same st. Once the desired number of stitches have been completed. Remove hook, insert it in first dc made and the last stitch, pull up that loop through first stitches, ch 1 to close the popcorn st.
The back bump, or back bar, lies right behind the back loop of a stitch. Working into this spot leaves you with a visible line of stitches on the surface of your fabric.
Working into the back bumps along a chain creates a neater finish.
CHANGING TO A NEW COLOR
You will change to another colour by joining in the new colour during the final step of the last stitch in the old colour as follows: work the last stitch in the old colour until the last two loops of the stitch are on the hook, then using the new colour, YO and pull through the 2 remaining old colored loops on your hook. The next stitch you make will be the first stitch in the new colour.
