Skill Level - Easy

Abbreviations
PS - Puff Stitch

Materials
Size K/6.50 mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn
Tapestry Needle

Definitions

Long First Loop -
This is pulling the loop already on the hook, up about the height of a double crochet. I have found this technique blends the loops with the puff stitch, where a chain 3 will be visible.

Puff Stitch:
  1. Wrap the yarn over your hook, insert the hook through the stitch or space. Wrap the yarn over the hook and pull through. There will be 3 loops on the hook.
  2. Wrap the yarn over your hook. Insert the hook through the same stitch or space. Wrap the yarn over the hook and pull through. There will be 5 loops on the hook.
  3. Wrap the yarn over your hook. Insert the hook through the same stitch or space. Wrap the yarn over the hook and pull through. There will be 7 loops on the hook.
  4. Wrap the yarn over your hook. Insert the hook through the same stitch or space. Wrap the yarn over the hook and pull through. There will be 9 loops on the hook.
  5. Wrap the yarn over your hook and pull the yarn through all 9 loops to complete the puff stitch.
  6. Chain to secure.
The multiple for this stitch is 2. This means you will work an additional 2 chains for each extra puff stitch that you want to add to make your scarf wider. Subtract 2 chains to make it narrower.

Scarf Width: 7 inches/18 CM

Chain 18.
You can also replace the chain with 17 foundation single crochet.

Row 1: Make a long first loop(see definition above). Work the Puff Stitch in the first chain from the hook. *Skip a chain, work a Puff Stitch in the next chain. Continue across from * for a total of 9 Puff Stitches.
Note: There is not a chain 1 worked between each puff stitch. I found that made the row to wide.

Row 2: Make a long first loop(see definition above). Work the Puff Stitch in the top of the previous puff stitch. The hook will be worked through the top loop that joined the loops of the puff stitch on the previous row. Work a puff stitch in each stitch across for a total of 9 Puff Stitches.

Row 3-?: Repeat row two for the remainder of the length of the scarf.
This project can easily be adjusted in width to make an afghan.

  1. Hi! Although I learn to crochet very young, I drop it long time ago. Now that I took it once again and fell in love with the hook, Ive been trying to find those wonderful yarns you use on your videos. I live in the Dominican Republic and the limited colors available here frustrated me!. what brand do you prefer and where can I get it online? Thank you very much for everything

  3. Does is matter what kind of yarn you use to make this? I'm using 4 worsted medium red heart soft yarn, and a 5.5 mm hook. I'm new to this so I don't know how big a difference this makes. Also, how loose should you be with it? I'm trying to make this scarf and I only completed three puff stitches so but it doesn't really look like yours. Then again I had to redo it a few times since the first few times I made it too tight and couldn't pull the yarn through the 9 loops. But now I feel like it's too loose. So that's my dilemma... Is it the yarn that's the problem or should I just keep trying to find a nice medium between tight and loose?

  4. Tina,
    You can use any type of yarn and size hook to make this stitch and scarf. The stitch does need to be on the looser size or it will be difficult to make.
