This video crochet tutorial will help you learn how to crochet the popcorn stitch. This basic technique is similar to the bobble or cluster stitch and creates a puffed texture within your fabric. It’s sometimes used for flower motifs and as an accent to add interest to your project.
Step 1: Make a shell/fan by doing 5 dc in the next stitch.
Note: For a bigger or smaller popcorn, use more or less dc’s.
Step 2: Pull some extra slack on the last loop once you finish your final dc and remove your crochet hook.
Step 3: Insert your hook into the first dc of your shell/fan.
Step 4: Insert your hook back into the loop from your last dc and tighten it down.
Step 5: Pull the loop through the first dc on your hook and pull tight.
Step 6: Ch 1 to lock in place.
