Yummy Puff Stitch Scarf


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.

Completed items from this pattern are intended for personal use only, please!

Skill level
Beginner

Finished size
About 33 inches long with ends joined. 8 inches wide.

Supplies
2 - 3 skeins of Caron Simple Soft
10 mm crochet hook
Yarn needle

Skills
Ch - Chain
Sl - Slip stitch
Puff - Puff stitch

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.

  5. Could have something similar knitting by using 5 or 6 strands of yarn and knitting with one 00 needle or 25mm needle, and one 6 needle. Alternating rows will bw samller than the big one, giving the effect wanted.

  7. I think in Row 2 there is a missing instruction to chain 1 in between the puff stitches.

    1. Hi Brandi! If you need to chain one to get to where you next puff is supposed to be, that's fine! Once I've chained one to close off the puff, I just yarn over and keep rolling to where the next puff stitch is going to be. It helps to lengthen that loop a little bit first before moving on as well.

      Hope you like your finished project!
