Have you ever thought of going a bit greener? Using less plastic, producing less waste? This is the time to change! Use these instead of the cotton wool you are currently using. They’re completely reusable, made of 100% cotton. You can wash them in the washing machine too when they get dirty. 🙂

- US terms used throughout
- Each round starts with a Chain 1 which is not counted as a stitch.
- 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
