This is an old thread, but thanks so much for posting this!  I got a pattern for popcorn, and the first think I thought was, "how can I make a garland?"  Crocheting the little popcorns is sooo addictive, I think I'll have enough for several!

There are a few kinda different ones here http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/hairpin_lace.php
They aren't all "free" though.

I think you could totally modify the pattern with bigger cups.  It's pretty forgiving and adaptable.  Congrats, by the way!  And let us know how your tank turns out!

I did buy a giant S hook with the tail.  I love big hooks, and I do tunisian a lot, so I thought it was worth it.  I'm not really planning another big afghan any time soon, but I just whipped up two scarves this weekend with this technique (and my regular p tunisian hook).  I love the woven look you get this way, and tunisan makes nice thick fabric, so I'll probably make a few more scarves for fall birthday and Christmas presents. 

About converting, I was going to put an eye-hook, or whatever you call the little screws with like an o on them on my S hook and then attach a wire (Does that make any sense at all?).  But I bought my big extended one from the Jenkins Woodworking recommended by Stitch Diva and it is a wonderful, gorgeous hook.  I mostly work with wood or bamboo hooks now, and the difference is amazing!  The work seems to go faster and my hands  don't hurt as much.

that's lovely!  and I love that it isn't "typical" baby colors.  Your cousin and her child will use and cherish this for years!

I call this the Monster Blankey because it's the biggest blanket/afghan I've ever made.  BTW, July is NOT the best month to crochet a blanket! ;-)
This is done in 3-color Tunisian, a technique I learned from a Stitch Diva pattern.  It goes super-quick, and the color change keeps it from being boring.

I love it cause it used up lots of my stash yarn, the one and two skein buys that were just too good a deal to pass up or too pretty to leave at the store.

Thanks for looking!

What a great idea!  I have a crafty friend who just got a cup; she'd love something cute to keep it in.  Oh, and I have to make one for me, too!

Thanks for the help.  I still don't think I did it right, but mine looks kinda like the picture in the book.  It turned out a little snug, too.  So, we'll see.
