The V Puff Stitch is an incredibly luscious stitch with amazing texture. Pair it with your favorite color changing yarn for a project that’ll catch anyone’s eye. It’s reversible, making it great for projects where both sides will show.

The V Puff Stitch works well with all sorts of yarns from smooth to slightly textured, lightweight to bulky.
Supplies used in demonstration video:
- Red Heart Unforgettable Yarn, Heirloom
- 5 mm Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
- Ch Chain
- Dc Double Crochet
- Hk Hook
- Pf Puff Stitch**
- Rem Remaining
- Sc Single Crochet
- Sp Space
- St(s) Stitch(es)
**Puff Stitch (Pf) – YO, insert hk into designated stitch, YO and pull up a loop. [YO, insert hk in same st, YO and pull up a loop] 4 times. YO, and pull through all loops. Chain one.
Additional Notes: Puff stitches can have any number of loops to determine thickness. This is a 11-loop puff stitch, which we find to be the perfect amount. The written instructions have been updated since filming of the tutorial. Please note the multiple is 4 + 5, not 4 + 10 (however, this still works out).
Chain three at beginning of row counts as a double crochet stitch.
Row 1: Ch any number of sts divisible by 4 and add 5 at the end. 1 sc in 2nd ch from hk and in each rem ch.
Row 2: Ch 3. *Sk 3 st and in next ch [Pf, ch 1, Pf]. Rep from * to last four st. Sk 3 sts. 1 dc in last st. Ch 3 and turn.
Row 3: *In next ch-1 space [Pf, ch1 Pf]. Rep from * to end of row. Dc in 3rd turning ch. Ch 3 and turn.
Repeat: Rep row 3 until work measures the length you want.
Last Row: Rather than ch 3 at the end of your last v puff stitch row, ch 1 (doesn’t count as st) and turn. 1 sc in first st. *1 sc next pf st. 1 sc next ch-1 sp. Rep from * to last ch-1 sp. 1 sc last pf st. 1 sc in 3rd turning ch. Fasten off.
