Popcorn Stitch Tutorial

    The popcorn stitch tutorial is an intermediate level stitch. It is the biggest I’ve seen out of all the bubble shaped special stitches. The popcorn stitch can be used for so many projects and is used for in many of my crochet patterns. The example in the photo simply shows popcorn stitches spaced out with single crochets. It has a lovely, thick, 3D texture. Although the popcorn stitches are only visible on one side, you can easily pop them through if you change your mind.

The tutorial will teach you how to make the stitch. To make a swatch like the one in the photo, simply space out the popcorns with single crochets and alternate with rows of single crochets.
