How To Crochet The Popcorn Stitch

Popcorn stitch is a nice way to add texture to your fabric and is real easy to make.

To create a popcorn stitch all you need is to work a few stitches into one stitch (or chain space) and then gather them at the top with one stitch. This will create a ball or bump that “pops” of the fabric.

They are many variations of how to work this stitch. The most common is to work 5 double crochet stitches (US terminology), but you can work more or fewer stitches and you can also change the height of the stitches.
