For the Spring Blooms patterns, I wanted to create a stitch that would have a similar look to the puff stitch, but with spread petals like a flower. I couldn’t find anything that suited my needs, so I just made this one up myself. It is basically a hdc6tog (half double crochet 6 together) spread over 3 different sts. Then, once you have finished your hdc6tog, you close the top of the flower puff with a ch1. This will result in a neat little flower-shaped puff. A flower puff stitch is considered 2 sts.
First, you place the specified number of sc. Then:
– *Yarn over, insert your hook into the first specified stitch (shown in green in figure 1), yarn over, and draw up a loop. ** Repeat from * to ** 1 more time. You should have 5 loops on your hook.
– *Yarn over, insert your hook into the second specified stitch (shown in yellow in figure 1), yarn over, and draw up a loop. ** Repeat from * to ** 1 more time. You should have 9 loops on your hook.
– *Yarn over, insert your hook into the third specified stitch (shown in red in figure 1), yarn over, and draw up a loop. ** Repeat from * to ** 1 more time. You should have 13 loops on your hook.
– Yarn over and pull your yarn through all 13 loops (see figure 2). Finish off with a ch1.
– You have now made a flower puff stitch. Skip the specified number of stitches, and continue on with your next set of sc. Your work should now look like figure 3.
Tip: Once you have completed your flower puff stitch, it can be difficult to tell where to put your next sc because your skipped st(s) are hiding under a flower puff. If you’re having trouble with this, try placing a stitch marker in the stitch where you should be placing your next sc. As you can see in figure 1, I have skipped 2 sts and placed my marker in the next st. This is where my next sc will go
