How to Crochet Popcorn Stitch

This popcorn crochet stitch really pops! The popcorn stitch (abbreviated pop or pc) is a nicely rounded, compact oval that stands out from the fabric. It takes a bit more time to make than other raised stitches, but it’s well worth the effort.

For even more fun, you can work popcorn stitches so that they “pop” to the front or the back of the fabric, depending on where you want them to stand out.

Work a 5-double-crochet popcorn stitch so that it pops to the front of your design:

  1. Work 5 double crochet (dc) stitches in the same stitch.

  2. Drop the loop from your hook.

  3. Insert your hook from front to back under the top 2 loops of the first double crochet of the group.

  4. Grab the dropped loop with your hook and pull it through the stitch.

You can also pop to the back of the work:

  1. Work 5 double crochet (dc) stitches in the same stitch.

  2. Drop the loop from your hook.

  3. Insert your hook from back to front under the top 2 loops of the first double crochet of the group.

  4. Grab the dropped loop with your hook and pull it through the stitch.

In stitch diagrams, the stitch symbol is the same for a back or front popcorn.
