A Puff, A Bobble, A Popcorn Oh My!



What's the Dif?

When reading a pattern you might encounter a word like Puff, Popcorn, Bobble, Picot and think to yourself - 'what the heck?' Do not fret! You are not alone. These are in fact different techniques, but even I have referred to one by the wrong name. So, for your learning pleasure, here are the true meanings of each term:
The Bobble:
The bobble is a collection of loops crocheted together.

The Popcorn
The popcorn is a collection of stitches where the first and last of the collection are crocheted together to make the set 'pop' out of your crocheted piece.

The Cluster
The cluster is a collection of double or triple crochet stitches (or extended stitches) where they are not completed until the end and then all are crocheted together.

The Puff
The puff stitch is similar to the cluster except all stitches are crocheted into the same base stitch before being crocheted together.
