I'm Phyllis of Many Creative Gifts, and in this segment, we're going to learn how to do the puff stitch. So, start out by doing your first row of either single or double crochet stitches, and then, go do your second row. You're going to do your puff stitches with single crochet stitches in between. So, start out doing your single crochet, until you get to the point where you want to do a puff. Now, the puff stitch is basically a stitch that involves pulling up loops and only loops, and keeping them on your hook, until you're ready to pull all the way through. So, this is a relatively thick yarn, so I don't need to do too many loop overs. But I do a yarn over, I insert my hook into the same stitch, I pull up a loop. Yarn over, back into the same stitch, pull up a loop. So, I think, this is enough, I like, a not too puffy, puffy stitch. Then, I do a yarn over and I pull through all of the loops on my hook and then, I do a chain stitch to connect them altogether. Then, go back down and keep doing single crochet stitches into each stitch across the row, until you're ready to do another puff stitch. So, we'll do a yarn over, insert into the stitch, pull up a loop, keep those loops on the hook, yarn over, insert into the same stitch, pull up a loop. Let's do one more, yarn over, insert, pull up a loop. Yarn over, pull through, all through the loops and do a chain stitch on top to seal the deal. Then, keep doing your single crochet stitches and the remaining stitches of your row. And as you can see, we've got two pretty puffy puff stitches. I'm Phyllis of Many Creative Gifts, and this tutorial was on the puff stitch.
