How to Crochet Popcorn stitches tutorial
A popcorn crochet stitch is formed when several trebles (UK) (or longer stitches) are worked in the same place, then the stitch is completed by joining the first stitch with the last to make a ‘cup’ shape.
- Work several trebles in the same place.
- Reinsert the hook in the top of the first treble of the group the way picture shows, and pull yarn through the loops to close the popcorn.
