How to Crochet a Puff Stitch

Instructions for Mastering the Crochet Puff Stitch:

  1. Yarn over, insert your hook into the stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop.

    Tip: Pull your loop so it is even with the other stitches on your crochet hook.

  2. Yarn over again, insert your hook into the same stitch, yarn over, and pull up another loop. 

  3. Repeat this until you have nine loops on your crochet hook. Yarn over, and pull your yarn through all nine of the loops.

  4. Chain one to secure the stitch.

  5. Follow along with your instructions for your project and enjoy!
