Today we will learn a pretty puff stitch. You can decorate your scarf or sweater with that puff or use for any other work. You can also make a piece joining your puffs together!

- a cotton yarn
- crochet hook bigger than recommended for your yarn
- a chain(s) – ch(s)
- a slip stitch – sl st
- a double treble crochet – dtr
- a yarn over – yo
R1: Make 5 chs and close them with a slip stitch forming a circle.
R2: Make 5 chs that will represent 1 dtr, and work 17 dtr (1 dtr = 3 yo,
introduce the hook into the circle from the 1st Round making a yo and close each 2 yo together).
Work 3rd dtr (make 3 yo, make 1 yo through the circle and close 2 by 2):
Keep working until having 18 dtr in total including 5 chs:
Close the Round with a sl st introducing the hook in the 5th chain from the beginning of this Round.
R3: Make 3 chs.
Now we will be working dc all the Round but closing 2 by 2. Work 2 dc (1 dc in 1 st from the base)
and close them 2 by 2:
Make 1 dc in the next st from the base and go thought 2 yo with the hook. Make yo and work 1 dc in the next st from the base and go through 2 yo with the hook.
Now close both dc together going through the 3 yo with your hook.
Make 2 more dc in next 2 st from the base and close them 2 by 2 the same way.
The completed Round should look like following:
Close that Round with a sl st in the 3rd ch:
R4: Work 1 sl st in each stitch from the base all the Round (9 sl st in total):
The puff flower is now ready! Once you understand the pattern, it’s not that hard!
