Who’s ready for another round-up of FREE patterns featuring stitches we’ve learned here on the blog. Today’s featured stitch is the puff stitch!
Did you miss the out stitch tutorial? No worries, catch up on it here.
Just to recap, the puff stitch, which has no abbreviation, is a type of cluster stitch. It is made when you work 3 (or more) partially completed half double crochets into the same stitch and then they are joined together at the top of the stitch on the final pull through. The puffs will always be worked on the right side of your fabric, so they should puff out toward you when you work them. You can make your puff stitch more or less puffy by increasing or decreasing (respectively) the number of partial half double crochets you make before your final pull through.
Free Patterns Using Puff Stitches
One of my first patterns here on the blog was my beginner-friendly Autumn Walks Triangle Scarf. One of the features of this lightweight scarf is, you guessed it, the puff stitch!

Winter is coming, y’all… I know technically here in the Northern Hemisphere it is still the middle of summer, but one needs to be prepared. How cute are these beanies from Loops & Love? I love the dual tone, but I think it would look cute in a solid color as well!

This poncho uses the same yarn as my Autumn Walks Triangle Scarf above, which I think if that triangle scarf were to turn into a poncho, it would look something like this. So pretty!
