Tutorial Week – Puff Stitch

I’m a big fan of this stitch as its so quick and easy to do and I have already used it twice on my two beanie hats in previous posts (see here)

Start by chaining the desired length

  1. Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over and draw through loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops still on hook)
  2. In the same stitch repeat step 1, 2 more times leaving you with 4 loops on your hook.
  3. Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on your hook.
  4. If you want a bigger puff then when you are repeating step 1 do it 3, 4, 5 or however many times you wish then carry on as normal.
  5. Usually after doing your puff stitch (step 1-4) you would then do ch1 before doing another puff in the next stitch but if you’re working from a pattern it should tell you if it wants you to do this.

Free puff stitch patterns:

HATNewsboy Hat – Having made two hats with this stitch already I think hats are ideal for learning this stitch and the end results almost always look great. I recommend checking the gauge as you go to ensure it will fit when done, and don’t use a wool to stiff or has no give in it

scarf2Scarf – This scarf looks lovely in the puff stitch and would be fabulous in any colour. I will be making one of these ready for winter!

puff flowerFlowers – You can never have enough flower patterns, and this one is brilliant as its completely different to the usual ones you find, plus its 3D thanks to the puff stitch so really stands out.

Have a great Saturday
