How To Crochet The Popcorn Stitch (Photo + Video Tutorial)

The popcorn stitch is a very easy stitch that adds a fun pop of texture to your crochet projects!  Below is a both full video tutorial and a complete photo tutorial where I walk you through every step of the way.  

Tips/notes for this stitch:
  • The popcorn stitch abbreviated in patterns is usually "pc"
  • Sometimes patterns will have you make a popcorn stitch with either 4 or 5 double crochets.  Either is OK.  For this tutorial, we'll be making ours with 5 double crochet stitches.
Once you've mastered this stitch, try my video for this pretty shawl to practice!

Here's the full popcorn stitch video tutorial below:

For this tutorial I'm using an N hook and some bulky weight yarn.  However, you can try any weight you like just look for the recommended hook size on the yarn label for best results.

To begin, locate what stitch (or space in some cases) you need to place your popcorn in.  We'll be working our popcorn into the next stitch seen here:

In that stitch, work 5 double crochets (all in the same stitch),

Now carefully remove your hook.  I like to pull my loop out a bit,

Next insert the hook back into the first stitch (of the 5 dc group that you just did),

Reach back to the loop and bring it through the loop already on your hook,

Done!  You should have just one loop on the hook.  You've just added a beautiful popcorn stitch to your work!

To continue, repeat these steps anytime you want to add a popcorn to your crochet!  Happy stitching lovelies!
