V & Puff Stitch Pattern – In Stitches Tutorial, Vol 2

In Stitches, Vol 2

V & Puff Stitch Pattern


I thoroughly enjoy V-stitches; the placement, the symmetrical value they add to the fabric and our keen eye loves a visual “V”. I also very much like a puff stitch. It is just so cozy looking when the stitch is added to the pattern. The puff stitch used in my design of this stitch pattern is what I call an “unlocked” puff. The common puff stitch is “locked” by working a chain stitch after completing the puff. However, in this stitch combination, I chose to leave the puff unlocked.

The V & Puff Stitch Pattern I designed for you is perfect for scarves, afghan blocks, blankets, trims and edgings to sweaters, hats and mittens… Well, pretty much all garments would look lovely with this stitch pattern used as a whole, or as accent rows.



V-Stitch (Vst): [dc, ch1, dc] all into same st

Puff (PUFF) unlocked: *Yarn over, insert hook into specified st and pull up a loop*, repeat two more times; with 7 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through all 7 loops. (*tip – pull your loops up to the height of a double crochet stitch)


  • Ch3 counts as a dc
  • The first time you work R2 from a foundation row, your last dc will be worked into the top of the 3rd ch of the turning ch from the foundation row.
  • Your PUFF st is slightly different than a common puff st. It is an “unlocked” puff = no ch1 to lock the st.

ABBREVIATIONS: ch=chain; dc=double crochet; PUFF= puff stitch; sp=space; sk=skip; st(s)=stitch(es); R=row; rep=repeat; Vst=V-stitch


This stitch pattern is multiples of 3 (+4 for your foundation chain)

R1: (foundation row): Vst into 5th ch from hook; *sk 2, Vst*, repeat to last two sts; dc into last st; ch3, turn.
R2: *Vst into each ch1 sp of previous R* across; work 1 dc into top of turning ch; ch3, turn.
R3: *Sk dc and ch1 sp; dc into next dc (2nd post of your Vst of previous R), ch1; cross in front of dc just made and working back into the skipped dc, work a PUFF into the skipped dc*, rep * across; dc into top of turning ch; ch3, turn.

R4: *Work a Vst into the ch1 space at the top of your PUFF from previous R* rep * to last two sts; dc into top of turning ch; ch3, turn.
Repeat rows 2 through 4 until you’ve reached your desired dimension.

After a few repeats, your work should look like this.

About thehookedhaberdasher

I was blessed with two dear Grandmothers who were wonderfully gifted and loved all the arts of handcrafting. At their knee, a wee little blonde girl learned the fine art of crochet under their wise and talented tutelage. Now that little girl has grown up and enjoys a lifestyle that affords me the time to put hooks, yummy yarns and fibers back into my hands, returning to the joy and fun of the art of handcrafted crochet. I am awed by the talent and creative patterns of modern new designers, but still enjoy the beauty of vintage patterns as well. My mind and hands are never idle, designing and handcrafting stylishly beautiful, practical, cozy, comfy, sweet and cute wearables and loveables for old and young alike. As a very detail oriented artist, I design and crochet with love, embracing the virtues bequested to me by those two beautiful Grandmothers.
