YoYo Puff Crochet Pattern
Difficulty Level: Beginner, must know how to crochet tptr, tr, dc, tr2tog, sl st & ch
ch = chain
tr = treble
tr dec = Treble decrease (aka tr2tog – treble next 2 stitches together)
tptr = Triple treble
sl st = slip stitch
st = stitch
yo = yarn over
Starting Ring: ch5, slst to first chain to form a base ring.
Rnd 1 : ch8, tptr19, slst to the 8th chain.
Rnd 2 : ch3, tr on the next st, *tr2tog or tr dec on the next 2 sts*, repeat * 9 times, slst to the dc loop. fo with at least 8″ long yarn tail.
Using 2.5mm hook or recommended hook size for your choice of yarn.
Starting chain: chain 5, sl st to the first chain to form a ring.
Round 1: Chain 8, this is deem as the first st of your tptr.
To crochet a tptr: Yo 4 times, insert hook into the ring, yo, draw loop through (6 loops on hook), *yo, draw through 2 loops* 5 times.
A finished tptr as the 2nd st of this round. Crochet another 18 tptr to have 20 sts in the ring altogether.
Sl st to the 8th chain of the first st to complete 1st round.
Next, we are going to decrease the st to make the back layer of the puff.
Round 2: Chain 3, yo twice and get ready to crochet a tr.
Insert hook in the next st, yo, draw loop through (4 loops on hook), *yo, draw through 2 loops on the hook*, repeat 3 times.
This deem to be the first pair of tr dec.
Crochet tr dec for the next 2 sts; Yo twice, insert hook in the next st,yo, draw loop through (4 loops on hook), *yo, draw through 2 loops* twice to make the 1st st of tr dec. Repeat the same for the 2nd st of tr dec.
Yo, draw through 3 loops on the hook. Repeat another 8 times for the tr dec.
Sl st to the 3rd chain. Leaving a long end of about 8″.
Use a tapestry needle to sew the chain edge of the 2nd round to the wrong side of the first round slightly away from the center opening.
Finished yo-yo puff with 1st round as the right side. It is about 1.5″ in diameter if using 100% cotton DK light worsted yarn with 2.5mm hook.
Stay tuned to my upcoming post which I made a summer hat for my daughter by using these puffs.
