The starting frame (base)

 

Use the white yarn. (2m16s) Start with 1 sl st, *make 4 chs* rep. to have approximately 20 cm of multiples of 4 chs, (3m47s) make 3 more chs in the end.

The body

After each 2 squares you will work 1 puff stich and in the end you should have one square free, so check amount of stiches of the frame before you start. (6m31s)

R2: (7m09s) Make 4 chs. Turn the work over. Work 1 dc, make 1 yo and work 1 puff stich in the next square of the base (make 5 yo in the same square, put the crochet through them without the last loop, close all of them with 1 ch, work 1 dc in next st from the base, make 1 ch), *work 1 dc in next dc from the base and work another puff stich in the next square of the base (make 5 yo in the same square, put the crochet through them without the last loop, close all of them with 1 ch, work 1 dc in next st from the base, make 1 ch)* rep. until the end of that round.

Don’t forget that there is 1 dc before and after the puff stich. (28m26s) Skip 1 ch and make 1 dc in next st from the base and make 1 ch in the end.

R4: (15m49s) Change the colour of the yarn. Start in the 3rd ch. Make 4 chs. *Work 1 dc, make 1 yo, put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo, put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo , put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo , put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo , put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo (5 times), stich all loops (except for the last loop) with a ch in order to make a puff stich, work 1 dc* rep. until completing full round.

R5: Work 4 chs from the 3th ch with the pink yarn. Work 1 dc in the dc from the base. *Catch all the loops from the puff stich from the previous round (without the dc), work 5 yo, (20m30s) close all of them (except for the last loop) with a yo, work 1 dc in the next st of the base, make 1 ch* rep. until the end of that round. Don’t forget that there is 1 dc before and after the puff stich. Skip 1 ch and make 1 dc in next st from the base and make 1 ch in the end. Cut the yarn.

R6: (21m48s) Change the colour of the yarn. Start in the 3rd ch with the white yarn. Make 4 chs. *Work 1 dc, make 1 yo, put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo, put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo , put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo , put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo , put the crochet through the work in the other side, 1 yo (5 times), stich all loops (except for the last loop) with a ch in order to make a puff stich, work 1 dc* rep. until completing full round.
