Have you ever fascinated with the fabric yo-yo puff to make this and this and this and this? If you can crochet, I have another version to make it, it is the Crochet Yo-Yo Puff!!!!

As you may notice, this is not a normal crochet circular shape, it is a real double-layer puff just like the fabric version. I crocheted a summer hat for my daughter by using this yoyo puff. There are so many great projects for fabric yoyo, now we can transform them into crochet version…. maybe a comfy baby blanket, what do you think?

Besides being a beautiful crochet craft to make, it is great to use up the leftover yarn from the yarn projects you have just completed. Be it from the stashed yarns of your sweater knitting project, from a granny square blanket project, from an amigurumi project, or a purse project, you can always create another item with these crochet yoyo puffs to pair with your main project. I used the leftover yarn from a granny square top that I crochet for my daughter. Now with this summer hat, they are in a set.

[Update: I also crochet some poinsettia coasters using these yo-yo puffs for Christmas, head over to view it]

Start crochet the yo-yo puff to add to your craft projects, be it a decorative trim for the curtain, an embellishment component for the handbag, or a lampshade. You may also add it to the hairband or bobbin pin to make hair accessories, or simply add a keyring to make it a keychain. If you are ambitious you may even crochet a lot of yo-yo puffs and join up to be a blanket or bed spread.

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