Popcorn Stitch: (Abbreviation: “pop” or “pc”)
Popcorn stitch is a decorative stitch that creates a raised oval in your crocheted piece. You can make them popping forward, or toward the back, depending on which side you’d like your stitches on.
1) Forward Popping Popcorn Stitch on a foundation of one row sc and followed by one row sc.
2. Backward popping stitch (front side) on same foundation
3. Backward popping stitch (back side) on same foundation
Front Popping: Make 5 Double Crochets into one stitch. Take your loop off the hook. Insert your hook from front to back under the top 2 loops of the first double crochet you made. Hook the dropped loop, and pull it through the stitch.
For Backward popping: Instead of going from front to back in the loops of your first double crochet, you will go from back to front, and your popcorn stitch will pop towards the back.) You should have 1 loop on your hook.
