Crochet Puff Stitch
Crochet puff stitches are easy and fun to make! They also work great for a lot of different projects.
You can use puff stitches to make blankets, pillow covers, or you can use them in borders. I used a combination of 3 puff stitches for the border of my Cozy Cotton Throw Blanket. So you can’t go wrong when it comes to puff stitches.
What stitches are used to make this variation of the puff stitch?
For this puff stitch pattern, you will need to know how to make a chain, a double crochet, and how to draw up loops on your hook to make a puff stitch.
