If you thought all of these, or just a few of them, were all the same, you are not alone!
Most people assume that a Cluster and a Bobble are the same.
Or, that a Cluster and a Bobble and a Puff are all the same.
But, there are distinct differences between all 3 of these stitches that you can easily learn right now!
Let’s take a look at the basics:
  • Bobble: All stitches are joined at one base, and at the top. Try this with long stitches, like the Double or Triple crochet.
  • Cluster: All stitches have a different base, but are all joined at the top. This is also known as a “decreasing stitch”, and you can try this with any stitch; Single, Half Double, Double or Triple.
  • Popcorn: All stitches are joined at one base, and at the top. However, this stitch is formed when by joining the tops of the first and last stitch together, and you can try this with long stitches like the Double or Triple crochet.
  • Puff: All stitches are joined at one base, and at the top. However, this look is only formed with the Half Double Crochet (try it to see)!

Please pin this cheat sheet to save it for later!
