Sometimes I just lack the focus to crochet anything complicated. I just want to be crocheting and not have to think about it. If you've ever felt the same way I have a great instant gratification project for you!
It's the yummy puff stitch scarf! For mine, I used two strands of Caron Simply Soft held together for super puffiness. Any bulky weight yarn would also do. This is an easy project that goes fast, and creates a super delicious chunky cowl.

Here's how you puff stitch. Make sure you keep your yarn very loose.
Ready to puff stitch with one loop on your hook, pull up to extend that loop so it's about as tall as a double crochet. Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook). *Yarn over, insert hook into that same stitch and draw up a loop (5 loops on hook). Repeat from * 3 more times (5 times all together) and you should wind up with 11 loops on your hook.
Yarn over and draw through all 11 loops on hook, then chain one to close off the puff.
Using two strands held together, loosely chain 133.
Row 1: Turn, puff into 4th ch from hook, *sk 2, puff into next ch, repeat from * across, ch 3.
Row 2: Turn, *puff into next ch space, repeat from * across, ch 3.
Row 3 - 10: Repeat row 2. Do not fasten off.
Slip stitch ends together to form a circle. Fasten off and weave in ends.
