Tutorial: Puff Crochet Stitch!


Step by Step 1/1 LslT RS (Left-slip-Twist) Knitting Tutorial

Hello!


This is our fifth week of a nine-week series on beginning crochet and the basic stitches used in the Zinnia Blossoms Afghan.


Today we'll be learning how to make a Crochet Puff Stitch. (This one is actually the same in both UK and US crochet terminology!) This is a fun variation of a US Half-Double Crochet (UK Double Crochet). It has a few more loops on your hook before finishing the stitch which makes it wider, but not higher than a normal Half-Double Crochet and this is what makes it "puff" out a bit!


I've posted the video below along with a few notes and all the links you might need. If you have any questions, you can always email me directly: shaina@yumiyarns.com


Have fun & happy knitting!

Notes and Resources:



Crochet Puff Stitch (PS or Puff)

Step 1: You need at least 1 loop on your hook and an active project to work into. Work to the stitch in the pattern where you will be adding a Puff.

Step 2: Wrap the working yarn from back to front, over the hook. (This is a yarn-over.) You now have 3 loops on your hook.

Step 3: Insert the hook into the next stitch (or space, depending on your pattern). Yarn-over and pull through the stitch/space. You now have 4 loops on your hook.

Step 4: Insert the hook into the same stitch (or space, depending on your pattern) as you did in Step 3. Yarn-over and pull through the stitch/space. You now have 5 loops on your hook.

Step 5: Yarn-over and pull through all 5 loops on your hook. You're back to just one loop on your hook and you've completed a Puff.



That's it!
