A crochet popcorn stitch is a fun and textured stitch that stands out on your project.
To make it, you work several double crochets into the same stitch or space.
After completing these double crochets, you close them together, creating a little "pop" or raised bump on your fabric.
It adds a nice 3D effect to your crochet work and is commonly used for decorative purposes in various patterns.

How May Double Crochet Stitches In A Popcorn Stitch?

Is A Popcorn Stitch The Same As A Puff Stitch?
A popcorn stitch and puff stitch are two different stitches.
Popcorn stitch is made by bunching up several double crochets in the same spot, forming a raised cluster.
Puff stitch is created by stacking incomplete stitches together, giving a puffy, textured look.
The crochet abbreviation for a popcorn stitch is usually written as "pc" or "popcorn" in patterns.
You may also see variations depending on the designer or pattern, so it is always a good idea to check the specific instructions provided in the pattern you are following.
How to Make A Popcorn Stitch
Work a set number of double crochet (e.g., 4 to 6) into the same stitch or space.
Remove your hook from the last loop, insert it into the first double crochet, and pull the last loop through the first to close the stitches together. Secure the popcorn stitch with a chain stitch or as per your pattern's instructions.
