Crochet Tutorial: Yo-Yo Puff

crochet yoyo puff

Have you ever fascinated with the fabric yo-yo puffs to make this and this and this and this? If you can crochet, I have a crochet version to make those yo-yo puffs!!!!

As you may notice, this is not a normal crochet circular shape, it is a real double layer yo-yo puff just like the fabric version. I crocheted a summer hat for my daughter by using these yo-yo puffs… you will get to see this in my next tutorial [Update: click the summer hat link to go there]. There are so many great projects for fabric yo-yo, now we can transform them into crochet version…. may be a comfy baby blanket, what do you think?

Crochet yo-yo puff is not difficult to make, as long as you know how to do chain, treble, treble decrease and triple treble. Following are the step by step photos and instructions on how to crochet it.

  1. Hey this is so easy and cute… And it gave me compliments, surprised? Well mu husband left for UK today and he wanted something to recognize his luggage. So I made luggage tags using your Yo yo tutorial and he was so happy. I couldn’t take picture of it due to lack of time. I’ll be making more luggage tags for my dad and will then take a picture.

    Thank you so much… I owe this to you :)

  11. I love this pattern, it looks like the ones you make with the little knitting machines. Thank you for putting it here for us

  12. I can’t thank you enough for allowing us the pleasure of this pattern. I’m having a blast. Problem is I would like to make one for my two year old grandaughter and don’t quite know how to change the stitches. would appreciate your help. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PATTERN.

    • I suggest to reduce the gauge of the stitches by using a smaller hook size. Theoretically, by reducing the hook size from 3mm to 2.5mm will reduce the hat size by 16.7%, with the assumption that the tension is about the same. But, since the yarn you are using could be varied from the one I am using, so, it won’t be that accurate. The next step is to test it out: try 1 puff with 2.5mm hook and check the size, you should be able to get a hint from here.
      Good luck.

  13. Thanks. My english is bad, I am mexican, but I try to learn pattern. I need see tutorial. Thank for your help.

  14. Lovely and useful tutorial. Thanks a lot! What a nice effect the yo-yo puff flowers when decreasing!

  15. I’m knitting крючком.мне liked hat YO-УО.Я I do not know how to collect separate motives in a hat and tie field hats help please advice how you did it with the wishes of good luck and greetings from russia

  16. I am very impressed with your patterns and ideas. I can’t tell you how many I have printed out so I can try them. I think these yo-yos would look good as the center of a layered flower or maybe you could make several sizes to stack for a mum or peony.

  17. I am new to crochet and reading patterns. I am a bit confused on the tr dec on the back of the yo yo puff. What exactly are you repeating 8 times? I don’t see * to show what to repeat. I assumed it was the whole group of 3, but with the 4 in the first set and 8 more groups of 3, that would require 28 stitches, but there are only 20 stitches going into the circle.

  18. I looked for a “printer friendly” button; couldn’t find one.
    Seems as though it needs to use 15 pages to print 5 pages of pattern.

    Maybe I’m just too stupid to see how to print it properly

    • The printing option will be included in the new design which my web designer is working on. Most probably will get it done by end of this year or latest early next year. For the time begin, please use the browser printing setting to print the page by selection. Sorry for the inconvenient caused.

  19. I make pillow dolls and just looking at your yo-yo puff pattern gave me so many ideas I can adapt to my dolls! I’m thinking berets, dress accessoriis, a very tiny version of your summer hat or even a small handbag (with an added strap of course) to liven up my dolls. I can’t wait to get started! Thanks for all the inspiration from one little Yo-yo puff pattern!

  20. Thanks for the article post. Really Great.

  21. I am sooo in love with this pattern. So easy and quick to make. My house will soon be over run by yo yo puffs.
    Many thanks for sharing.

  22. (sorry for my bad english….) Hello !
    I love this beautiful yo-yo !! Your explanations and diagram are very clear. It may stand in for “bullion” (in french), too tiring for the hands… is’nt it ??
    Your site is very interesting and nice. Thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge, you’re very generous !! best wishes, Leelou

  23. you are a very clever girl —
    I enjoy sitting down and copying
    interesting patterns.. keep them
    coming o.k.?? goody-goody…

  24. I LOVE this pattern too! Could these be put together and used for pot holders? Just to set on the table to set a hot pot on, not to be used to pick up anything hot. I’m just wondering. I am a beginner and I have been successful at making these yo-yo’s, a pot holder came to mind when I was looking at them. Please let me know if you can. Thank you so very much! You can email me if you would like.

  25. Thank you for sharing, now I have something to do with my leftover yarn. :-)
