This week we feature a pretty design called Popcornucopia (love the name) by Laurie Dale, a meticulous and prolific crocheter known as “DakotaStamper” on Ravelry.  Now we know that not only does Laurie have the neatest work, best color combinations, and drool-worthy photos, she also designs and writes a stunning pattern.  See her other free patterns in her Ravelry Store.  I enjoyed stitching this fun and well-written pattern.
