Crochet Puff Stitch

The crochet puff stitch looks just like it sounds... puffy, and depending on how many loops you choose to add to this stitch the puffier it will get.

The puff stitch is different from other crochet stitches because it is made up of several loops that connect at the top and bottom of the stitch. The connecting loops are what gives the puff stitch its raised and defined look.

The puff stitch is abbreviated (puff st) or (ps)
