Learn to Crochet the Popcorn Stitch!
Can you crochet the popcorn stitch? Learn how in this video tutorial!
The crocheted Popcorn Stitch is one of three stitches that creates a little bobble of stitches that adds wonderful texture. The bobble and puff stitches also create these little balls of fun, but the popcorn stitch is a perfect edging stitch, and creates the largest of all the shapes.
It is simple to do – and the results are delicious!
How to crochet the popcorn stitch:
Work five dc (UK tr stitches) into the same stitch.
Take your hook out of the working loop, and slide it into the top of the first of the stitches.
From behind the stitches, pull the working loop THROUGH the top of the first dc (tr) stitch to pull the popcorn bundle of stitches together.
Work your next dc (tr) as usual.
