How to: Crochet a Popcorn Stitch – Video Tutorial

How to crochet a popcorn stitch video tutorial

I was so pleased with myself when I learned to Crochet a Popcorn Stitch, whilst making this trivet from a pattern in Handmade Glamping*. I love the three dimensional texture and cushioned effect it produces.

Because crochet stitches are much easier to learn when you watch someone actually doing it, I thought it would be helpful to make a little video showing you how it’s done. If you already know how to do a Double crochet (US)/Treble (UK), like the one granny squares are made with, then you practically know how to do a popcorn stitch already. There is just one extra step.
Watch the video to see how.

The only downside to this stitch is that it uses a ton of yarn, but the upside is that it produces a nice thick textured surface, great for protecting surfaces (like this trivet) or for things like dish cloths where the bumps would help get any stubborn grime off.

I was lucky to find a big pile of assorted wool yarn whilst thrifting a few weeks ago in lots of lovely colours. It has supplemented my stash beautifully, so expect to see a few more crochet projects in the months ahead.
Do you find watch instructional videos helpful?

    YES! The video was very helpful even for a lefty like me. And a dish cloth, please no, too pretty to add grime. Best wishes, Carina
