Popcorn Knit Hat Pattern and Video Tutorial

I always love the Popcorn Stitch. It’s cute, feels a bit retro and it’s fun to knit! If this is your first introduction to the Popcorn Stitch, you may look at the pattern and think “huh???”. Seeing the stitch written out makes it seem confusing, which is why I included a video tutorial. The Popcorn Stitch is created with 1 stitch. You increase and decrease while turning the work back and forth.
