How to Crochet a Popcorn Stitch + Popcorn Stitch Patterns

By:

24 Comments

Making a popcorn stitch is quite easy if you have the proper directions on how to do so. All you do is make a cluster of double crochet stitches in the same stitch. This great tutorial will show you how to crochet a popcorn stitch and we've also provided some fabulous popcorn stitch patterns, as well.

 

  1. Chain a foundation chain which can be divided by 3. Single crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook and in each stitch of the chain.


     
  2. Chain 1 and turn, single crochet in the next 2 stitches. * In the next stitch, make 5 double crochet, keeping the last loop of each stitch on the hook.

     
     
  3. Slip stitch into all the 6 loops on the hook.

     
     
  4. Single crochet in the next 3 stitches.


     
  5. Repeat step 2, 3, and 4 across the row, beginning at * in step 2.
     
  6. Chain 1 and turn, single crochet in each stitch across the row. ( In the popcorn stitch, single crochet in the center stitch.)



    (Single crochet in the center stitch of the back side of the popcorn stitch.)
     
  7. Repeat the sequence of steps 2, 3, 4, 5, for the number of rows required to complete your project.

     

    (2 rows of popcorn stitch completed)    (3 rows of popcorn stitch completed.)

I thought it was a beautiful stitch so I hope I can make it before it is removed...whether puff or popcorn. However, I understand the reason for the correction. Getting something right early-on is important.(Fran - Newbie)

I totally agree with bamababe62 4144380, This is not a popcorn stitch it is a puff stitch.

It was said in another comment that no one but the "purists" would know the difference between the Popcorn Stitch & the Puff Stitch. I beg to differ. If you have crocheted very long you know that the Popcorn is much neater, it is tighter together, less likely to get caught & pulled (snagged) so your project always remains neater. I have an afghan over 20 years old that was made with Popcorns that looks like it came off my hook yesterday. Using the correct stitch in your project does matter.

I believe the author of this Popcorn Stitch tutorial is mistaken. The demonstration I see is for a Puff Stitch. Popcorn Stitch calls for a completed number of double crochets (ex 5). At the end of the last double crochet, you remove your hook, then insert it into the top of the beginning double crochet. From this point, you take your hook back to the loop from the last double crochet & pull the loop thru the top of the first double crochet. This connects all your double crochets cleanly, forming a Popcorn Stitch. Most patterns I've seen call for a chain 1 to close the Popcorn. I hope this tutorial can be renamed & a new one for Popcorn Stitch take its place soon. A beginner might develop incorrect habits or get discouraged while making a project.

Thank you so much! I tried and tried with a different pattern and never got it. It was confusing. Yours is great! I made the stitch in no time. I crochet hats for the nursery at our hospital. I like to do different kinds... I don't get bored and the babies all have different hats. Thanks again! RAE

Thank you so much for explaining the popcorn stitch. My learning book was a little confusing to me.

Oh, I can understand this! Today is my son's birthday and I will have to perfect this stitch for an 'after' gift or perhaps Valentine's. Until your tutorial I automatically said, 'can't' to the popcorn stitch, but no longer! Well, off to see the Grammys while crocheting

Pictures are well laid out, the article is very easy to understand, and I was very pleased with it. Thank you so much for sharing.
