How to make Popcorn Stitch

For me Popcorn stitch is one of the most beautiful crochet stitches ever! It brings so nice volume and structure to any (flat) design. And it is also ideal for crocheting flowers.

Popcorn stitch (pc) is not difficult to make at all. You should however know how to make double crochet stitch (dc) already.

Here are the instructions for making a popcorn stitch (yo=yarn over, lp=loop, st=stitch; […] and *…* =  follow instructions as many times as indicated):

*yo, insert hook in indicated st, yo, draw up a lp, [yo, pull through 2 lps] twice* 5 times in same st, drop lp from hook, insert hook from front to back through top of first dc made, place dropped lp on hook and pull through st.

And now let's see it with the pictures.

First you should make 5 dc’s (if you just start the round, you should make two chain stitches first, but they will not count as first dc).

Now drop the loop from the hook and insert the hook from front to back through top of first dc made (after ch2).

 Place dropped loop on the hook and pull yarn through the first dc. Five dc’s will “roll up” together and you will get a beautiful petal.
