Special Stitch:
puff: work the following instructions into the same stitch - yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop 5 times (11 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all loops on hook. (Tip: Make sure to pull your loops high enough so that your final yarn over and pull through is able to make it through all those stitches.)

PATTERN NOTES
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Stitch Counts: Stitch counts are listed after each row.

Right Side: The “right side” to this wrap is the side that faces away from you as you crochet the puff stitch rows. The puffs appear flat on the wrong side and more shapely on the right side.

Turning Chain: The turning chain does not count as a stitch unless otherwise indicated.

Changing Colors Seamlessly: When working the last stitch of an old color, work the stitch as usual, but use the new color to do your final yarn over and pull through to close the stitch. Then, you may cut the old color and continue stitching with the new color.
