It’s week 8 of the Country Garden crochet along. This week we’re making our next panel made with the Puff Flower stitch
This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation are:
- YO (Yarn over)
- ch (Chain)
- dc (Double crochet) = treble crochet
- puff2tog (puff two together)
If you would like to follow my colour scheme in either Paintbox Cotton Aran or Caron Simply Soft, you can find my colours here
Row 1. With Colour H, join into the 2nd corner stitch in the bottom right hand corner by making a standing dc. This will be on the right hand side of your Wiggle Stitch panel.
Ch2, Now we need to make a puff2tog *in the same stitch as your last stitch make a puff
(YO, insert your hook into the stitch, YO and pull up a loop. Repeat this 3 times until you have 7 loops on your hook)
don’t pull through any loops though as we need to make another puff first. Skip the next 3 stitches and make another puff.
YO and pull through all 13 loops on your hook and ch1. Your puff2tog is now complete. Now chain 4*
Repeat between *and* after the last puff, ch2 then dc in last stitch – 13 puff2tog
Row 2. turn, ch1 and make a dc turning chain in the first stitch *Make a puff into the centre of the puff2tog,
then ch4, then make a 2nd puff in the same place as the last one* repeat between *and* dc in the last stitch, changing to Colour A in the last 2 loops – 28 puffs
Row 3. Turn, ch1, and make a dc turning chain in the first stitch. Make a dc between the last dc of the row below and the puff *make 3 dc in the chain space, then make a dc between the 2 puffs* repeat between *and* dc in the last stitch, changing to Colour I in the last 2 loops
Row 4. Repeat row 1
Row 5. Continuing with Colour I Repeat row 2
You can now cut off and weave in your ends. Week 8 is complete.
