Please read this for more instructions before you start the blanket, as this pattern is written for right handed crochet.

 

Puff Stitch  

(Yarn over, pull up a loop) 6 times (13 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through 12 loops,
yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops.

 

Tips to make the perfect puff stitches

* The puff stitch is always created when working on the backside of the blanket, it will naturally pop in position on the front side. If this doesn’t happen, then work the Sc st after the puff st very slightly tighter than the other Sc sts.
* Use a metal crochet hook.
* If your puff stitches are too tight when working up, then increase the height slightly on the 1st loop pulled up.
