crochet puff stitches with an added twist
I have been experimenting with some crochet puff stitches variations of my own “design”. I say design in quotes because it probably isn’t a new stitch, just a new discovery to me.
This particular crochet puff stitch I created by combining a chain space with a regular puff stitch. I wanted it to be more lacy and open, hence the name lace puff stitch.
I love crochet stitches in general, as you can see in many of my projects, but I wanted to create a stitch pattern that would be great for crochet market bags, totes, beach bags, beach cover ups/kimonos. You get the picture.
This crochet puff stitches pattern is really easy to make, and a perfect little project for those new to crochet. It’s a simple two rows repeat.
I foresee a lot of projects using this stitch in the future, so stay tuned! Until then, have fun playing around with this puff stitch. Happy crocheting 🙂
