Tweedy Puff Stitch Scarf
By Jennifer Dickerson

  • 2 Skeins Lion Brand Tweed Stripes
  • K (6.5 mm) Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle

  • 6 Inches Wide and 58 Inches Long


 Note: Stitch sequence is a multiple of 2 + 4.  To make a puff stitch, wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (3 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up another loop (5 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (7 loops on your hook). Wrap yarn around hook one more time and bring it through all 7 loops on your hook. (Scroll down for a more detailed photo tutorial)

Ch 20
Foundation Row: In the fourth ch from the hook, work a puff stitch, then ch 1.  *Skip 1 ch and in the next ch, work a puff stitch.  Repeat from * until you have two ch left on the hook.  Skip the second to last ch and in the last ch, work 1 dc.  There should be 8 "puffs" on this row.

Row 1: Chain three and turn.  Work a (puff stitch, ch 1) in the top stitch of each puff from previous row, for a total of 8 puff stitches across.  Work a dc in the top stitch of the turning ch.
Repeat row 1 until scarf is desired length.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

  1. Wrap yarn around hook.
