The puff stitch

The puff stitch creates a bobble stitch, which gives your crochet work a nice puffy structure. I will explain to you step by step how to crochet a puff stitch. Make sure to check the pattern for instructions on how many loops you have to make. This can vary per pattern.

If the puff stitch is the first stitch in a row, I prefer to pull the loop up to the height of about a double crochet instead of making starting chains.
