The puff stitch is a simple stitch evocative of a half double crochet with some repeats. It creates an interesting look with fluffy texture and is ideal for blankets, home decor items and wearables.

Materials
1. Any weight yarn. In the video I use worsted weight.
2. Crochet hook in the appropriate size for the yarn used. I used a 5 mm.
Pro tip: Loosen your tension to finish the stitch easier — when pulling through all of those loops on your hook, things can get tight easily.
