You will now work ‘regular’ puff stitches. Skip one stitch. Yarn over, insert your hook in the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop. Repeat this another three times in the same stitch, so you will have nine loops on your hook (photo 4). Yarn over again, and pull through all loops on hook. This is your regular puff stitch. Crochet a ch (photo 5).
Continue like this until the end of the row: work puff stitches with a chain and a skipped stitch in between. Finally, work a dc in the last stitch (photo 6). Turn your blanket.
Crochet three ch (counts as first dc) (photo 7). Crochet a regular puff stitch in the first chain space between the dc and the final puff stitch of the previous row (photo 8). By working puff stitches in the chain space, you’ll get a more compact row. Repeat the pattern of the last row by creating puff stitches with chains in between. Work a dc in the final puff stitch (the begin-puff stitch of your previous row). Don’t forget that you are NOT working a ch between the last puff stitch and the dc. Cut yarn (photo 9). That’s how you work puff stitches!
