Puff Stitch Crochet Stitch Pattern




This is the Puff Stitch in the finished size of 9 in by 6. It's made lengthwise. I made this for a charity that used 9x6 inch sections. That's why I created this size. You can use the gauge to see what size you need.

Need to know how to do the Puff stitch I made a video that you can find at  https://youtu.be/xAk8Qr-n_Hk

Gauge: 2.25 rows per inches and 3 stitches per inch

Hook: I
Chain 27
Rows: 14
Experience: Beginner
Yarn: Red Heart

PUFF STITCH:
YO, insert hook in next st, (YO, pull up a loop) 4 times, then YO, and draw through all loops on hook

Other Stitches Used:
Half Double Crochet

Foundation Row: Do 1HDC in 3rd chain from hook and do 1 HDC in each stitch across the row.

Row 1: chain 2, turn.do 1 HDC in each of the next 2 stitches, Do 1 Puff Stitch in next stitch, *Do 1 HDC in each of the next 4 stitches, 1 Puff stitch in next stitch* end with 1 HDC in each of the last 2 stitches

Row 2: chain 2, turn…do 1HDC in each stitch across the row

Row 3: chain 2, turn…Do 1HDC in each of the next 5 stitches, *Do 1 puff stitch in next st, Do 1 HDC in each of the next 4 stitches* repeat 4 times

Row 4: repeat row 2

Repeat rows 1-4 for pattern until you reach 8 ½ inches then repeat row 2 to end and fasten off. We want 2 rows of HDC's at the beginning and at the end so when they crochet the afghan they don't run into Puff stitches.  Weave in all ends


Thanks for stopping by today :)
