Kernel Stitch Granny Square

Image of Kernel Stitch Granny Square Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This granny square uses a stitch that I know must exist but I cannot recall the actual name of it. It is a variation of the popcorn stitch. But instead of using 5dc in each stitch, it uses 3. This is a fun granny square and would be a great one to make for an exchange.
