In this DROPS video we show how to crochet bobbles (also known as popcorn stitch).
Alt 1: Crochet 4 dc (UK tr) (or what pattern calls for) in 1 stitch, but wait with last pulling through on each st until there are 5 sts on hook. Now pull through all 5 sts (i.e. the 4 dc are crochet tog to 1 dc). Continue with 1 st in each st until next bobble.
Alt 2 (larger): Crochet 4 dc (UK tr) (or what pattern calls for) in 1 stitch. Take the hook out from the loop on last st, stick hook through 1st st and then back through loop on 4th st, pick up yarn and pull through both sts. Continue with 1 st in each st until next bobble.
