How to Crochet Bulky Puff Stitch

Sharing is caring!

In today’s lesson you’ll learn how to crochet the Bulky Puff Stitch!  If you haven’t yet learned the basics go check out our first lesson on YouTube.

Lesson #1 will teach the ultimate basic step, HOW TO HOLD THE YARN AND CHAIN

For my learn to crochet series I will be using Super Bulky weight #6 yarn and a 9mm crochet hook.  You can use any hook and yarn weight but I feel learning with a larger hook and weight yarn is easier. In today’s lesson we use the color Lazuli.

Yarn used in video series – Sugar Bush Yarns Chill
