The Interlocking Puff Crochet Stitch is a beautifully textured puff stitch pattern that creates a lovely fabric texture.  The puff stitches end up looking woven together creating a very visually appealing stitch.

This puff crochet stitch would be perfect for blankets, wearables and so much more!  I have a free hat pattern featuring this beautiful puff stitch now on the blog – the Remember Me crochet Beanie. A beautiful top-down hat!

Interlocking Puff Crochet Stitch Details

In a standard crochet puff stitch you will typically pull up tall loops to the height of your stitch and then pull through all the loops on your hook to create the puff.

This puff crochet stitch is worked a little differently than a standard puff in that you are starting it with two unfinished extended single crochets then pulling up two tall loops to create the puff.  This gives the puff a little unique twist.

Crochet puffs feature in some of my favorite designs and if you love puff stitches you may enjoy them as well – Spring Me Forward Triangle Scarf, Pineapple of my Eye Blanket, Sea Shells by the Sea Shore Bag, Ties that Bind Blanket and the Shades of Pink Infinity Scarf.

The Interlocking Puff crochet stitch is a one-row repeat which means it is reversible!  No wrong side for this stitch!

This puff crochet stitch looks great in a solid, self-striping or working alternating rows in contrasting colors. A great stitch to use up your stash!

For the sample in my photos I am using Lion Brand’s Ferris Wheel yarn in Summer Day color way. A medium #4 weight yarn that is one of my favorite choices for ombre self-striping yarn – so soft!
