Difference Between Bobble, Cluster, Popcorn and Puff Stitches

bobble cluster popcorn puff stitches

Bobble, cluster, popcorn and puff crochet stitches – are they the same or are they different crochet stitches?

There seems to be a bit of confusion around this selection of four very popular crochet stitches.

In short, the answer is:

No, they are not the same. Bobble, cluster, popcorn and puff crochet stitches are four different stitches.

Here’s a short video where I highlight the differences between bobble, cluster, popcorn and puff crochet stitches, showing you how each of them is worked and how they are marked in crochet charts and patterns.

I really hope this video will clear up some questions you may have about these four textured stitches.

I think it is important to be able to identify which stitch is which just by looking at it, because in charts and patterns I notice inaccuracies, where a stitch can be called are popcorn stitch, while in fact, the picture of a finished item is clearly crocheted using a bobble stitch.

If you need more practice, below I have uploaded four videos where I show you how to crochet each stitch separately.

Cluster Stitch

Puff Stitch (2 Variations)

Popcorn Stitch

I hope you found these videos useful.

As with any crochet stitch, you might come across variations on these basic stitches, but I think if you know the basics, it will be so much easier to understand those variations and achieve desirable results.
