Demystifying Cluster Stitches Part 1

 

 

Note how each stitch puffs out slightly.
The popcorn stitch pops out at the top, due to the fact that the working loop is inserted through the first loop of the cluster to complete the stitch.
The puff stitch creates a lovely simple puff which would be wonderful to use on soft baby projects.
The bobble stitch is somewhat more structured than the puff stitch and more secure, which makes it more long lasting than the puff stitch.
The offset puff or pineapple stitch creates a lovely pattern and is the least puffy of the stitches I have chosen to show you.

  1. this is great, thank you! i love the look of the puff stitch but sometimes (ok, most of the time) my hook get stuck when pulling though all those loops. any tips for avoiding that?

  2. Thanks for this post. I thought popcorn and puff stitches were the same thing πŸ™‚
    I love all these cluster stitches, I like to use them in my crocheted dolls’ hair. I will make some of them using the different stitches you show here, and will send you pics!
