Popcorn Stitch Crochet Tutorial

The popcorn stitch is the biggest I’ve seen out of all the bubble shaped stitches. It’s single sided but the ‘bubbles’ do pop out in the opposite side with a little push.

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.

How they’re made

The popcorn stitch crochet tutorial is easy to intermediate skill level. To make a popcorn stitch you will need to know how to make a double crochet and a chain. 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.
