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 this yo-yo 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?
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.
Yo-Yo 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.
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.
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.
