Puff Stitch Baby Afghan Crochet

Lion Brand® Jiffy®


8 sts + 6 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Puff stitch. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Puff stitch yo, pick up loop in space) twice, yo and draw through 4 loops, yo and draw through remaining 2 loops.


When changing colors at end of rows, always work off last 2 loops of old color with new color. Do not cut colors; carry them loosely along side edges, picking them up as you need them.


Row 1 With A, very loosely ch 70, work Puff stitch in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across, changing to B at last st –68 Puff stitches. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2 With B, work Puff stitch in space BETWEEN first and second st, work Puff stitch in each space between Puff stitches across, with last Puff stitch in space between last stitch and beg ch 2 and changing to C. Ch 2 and turn. Repeat Row 3 for pattern, changing colors at end of each row, from C to A to B. Repeat this color sequence until 57 rows total have been worked, ending with a C row. DO NOT CUT COLOR C YARN. Fasten off A and B.


With C, work Puff stitches evenly around remaining 3 edges, with 3 stitches in corners, join with slip stitch to beg stitch. Fasten off.
