Crochet Popcorn Stitch
The crochet instructions below are for the basic popcorn stitch. We are in the process of writing out instructions for another pattern that details one way the popcorn stitches can be attached to each other.
With just one simple change in the stitch, you can make the popcorn stitch come out on the back of the work. You will find a complete explanation of how this is done below.
When crocheting, the popcorn stitch is made when a series of stitches, usually double or triple crochet, are made into the same stitch and then drawn together on the other end. Crochet patterns that include the popcorn stitch should include instructions on how the specific popcorn stitch should be made for that pattern. Our instructions will give you the knowledge necessary to be able to follow those instructions successfully.
Again our instructions are an example of how a popcorn stitch is made. There are many variations.
A popcorn stitch is worked into a base row. For our example we are going to work into a row of single crochet.
Note: The instructions between the *s in step 4 are the instruction for the actual "popcorn stitch" The other instructions are just meant to help you create a base to work into.
To make a popcorn stitch that comes out on the opposite side of your work, work the same as in the steps above except in step 4 when inserting the crochet hook into the first double crochet, insert it from back to front.
Popcorn stitches can be made randomly in a garment or close together in rows of popcorn as shown in our example above.
