Thank you, everyone! I woke up feeling accomplished this morning now that the cardigan is finally finished.
The stitch is actually super easy - the normal stitch is just a double crochet (triple in UK crochet terms) and the bigger stitch is just single crochet then popcorn stitch (YO and pull up a loop until you have 7 loops, then YO and pull through all) in the same stitch. Skip one stitch and repeat. Turn and repeat the row to get the popcorn stitch in the other direction. The hardest part of the pattern was following the instructions for the silver petals, but I got them after a few tries
Thanks again for the comments! They made my day
