A Slight modification of the new (and adorable) Puff Stitch Scarf, which in turn is inspired by Vickie Howell’s Urban Jungle hat. I had one skein of yarn and decided to use it up with this pattern. It wasn’t long enough to make a full scarf, but was perfect for a cowl. Added some buttons and … viola! This took me about an hour to make. Here’s my recipe!
sewing needle & thread
7 sts x 6 rows = 4″ in puff stitch
puff st: yo, insert hook into st and draw up loop (3 sts on hook), *yo, insert hook into same st and draw up loop* 3 more times. 9 sts on hook. yo and pull through 8 loops on hook, then yo and pull through last 2 loops on hook.
Approx. 6.5″ (17cm) tall x 22″ (56cm) long
Foundation chain: ch 26.
Row 1: In fourth ch from hook, work a puff st, *skip 1 st, ch 1, puff st in next st* until end. 11 puff stitches. ch 3 and turn work.
Row 2: In next ch1 sp, work a puff stitch, *ch 1, puff stitch in next ch1 space* until end. ch 3 and turn work.
Repeat Row 2 until you’re just about out of yarn. Fasten yarn and weave in ends.
Attach buttons one row in from the foundation ch on the third st in on each side. The ch1 spaces of the fabric are like built-in button holes.
Wear, share, and enjoy!
