Special Stitches:

Front Post Single Crochet:

Insert your hook from the front around the post of given stitch, from right to left, yarn over and finish your single crochet as usual.

Yarn over, insert your hook from the front around the post of given stitch, from right to left, yarn over and finish your half double crochet as usual.

Front Post Double Crochet:

Yarn over, insert your hook from the front around the post of given stitch, from right to left, yarn over and finish your double crochet as usual.

Puff Stitch:

Yarn over hook, insert hook in indicated stitch/space, pull up a long loop through that stitch/space (3 loops on hook) Yarn over hook again and insert hook into the same stitch/space, pull up a loop (same height as the previous one) 3 more times. You should have 9 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 9 loops on your hook, chain 1 to close the puff stitch.

Gauge:  not needed

Additional notes:

  • Each round starts with a Chain 1 or 2 ; These are not counted as a stitch.
  • US terms used throughout
  • When you make a puff stitch, it creates 2 loops on its top. I will refer to these loops as first loop and second loop. The first loop is always the one on the right and the second one is on the left.
  • Notes are written in a different color in (brackets) to help you through the pattern or state someting which can be unclear at first read
