How Do I Crochet: Popcorn Stitch

Updated October 20, 2017

Tired of wondering "how do I crochet the popcorn stitch?" It turns out that crocheting a popcorn stitch is quite easy if you have the proper directions on how to do so. This great tutorial will show you how to crochet the popcorn stitch. All you do is make a cluster of double crochet stitches in the same stitch.


  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.

Thanks for the picture diagram right in the front page. Easy for crocheters. The stitch looks complicated but looks easy when following the diagram. Well to make the actual project is to believe.

I have been crocheting for many years, but the popcorn stitch has always been a problem for me. This will make it easier for me to understand. Thank you.

This is NOT a 'popcorn' stitch, it is a 'puff' stitch. A 'popcorn' stitch is done by working 5dc in the same stitch, then drop the loop from hook, insert hook into the top of the first dc and pull the dropped loop through then ch1 to close. I have been crocheting for 60+ years and I am puzzled at how many patterns are using the wrong name for so many stitches. Therefore I am in the processing of writing a book showing the different stitches and patterns to use them in.
