Start out with just one color of yarn and practice your puffs, because the more fluent you are in making them, the nicer they will be.


LEVEL – beginner

TERMS – standard US

  • you can use any yarn and recommended hook size, but this stitch definitely likes soft yarn that’s a little bit more on a fine side.


  • diagram is a visual representation of the pattern, where symbols are used to represent stitches.
  • start with chaining multiple of 2 – the repetitive module consists of two stitches, which I indicated on the chart with colors pink and blue.
  • any additional stitches or those that vary from the repetitive module are marked green.
  • 3 chain stitches at the beginning of row 1 count as 1 additional double crochet to the overall number of stitches of the row, so your final row count should be an uneven number.

chain multiple 2. 

ROW 1:

chain 3, make 1 double crochet in each stitch.

ROW 2:

chain 4, skip one, *1 puff, 1 ch, skip one*, your last stitch should be 1 dc.

Repeat rows 1 and 2, keeping the overall count in each row the same. 



If your crocheting style is rather loose, it’s good to work double crochets IN the chain stitches between the puffs. If you struggle with inserting the hook in these chains, just work your dc’s in the chain space and don’t worry, because it will look fine, too.

You can see the difference it makes in the photo below:
