That is called the popcorn stitch (first pic). Granny used to do this one. You might try the Workbasket book for a pattern. It is similar to a granny square, but you popcorn a row in between stitches. Best I can help you with. I have not crocheted in quite some time.
She demonstrates it here, but how to chain and DC between??? Just have to work that one out. Sorry. No pattern. I guess you could popcorn to your hearts content
Hope that helps.
Double Edit: Check out the Bobble Stitch...similar, but different.
