Shopping List

Choose your favorite 3 colors (check our recommended color combos below), and purchase 2 balls of Mary Maxim Maximum Value Yarn in each color.  We recommend this as opposed to estimating yardage and winding separate balls for a few reasons.  First, although the gauge isn’t critical for this design, the puff stitch uses a lot of yarn which can vary from crocheter to crocheter.  Using a single ball of each color may cause you to run out of yarn even though we’ve estimated our usage at approximately 300 yards of each color.

We also used 2 different size hooks for this pattern.  Most of the stitches are crocheted with the US L (8.00 mm) hook; however, we used the US Q (16.00 mm) hook for our modified puff stitches.  You will need both hooks to achieve the texture in this design.

I was introduced to the fiber arts like many crafters by my great-grandmother. She was determined that if I ever needed to repair some socks or make myself a sweater then I would know how. Little did she know that it has led to a rather large yarn hoarding addiction and fascination with needles. As a life long crafter I am always learning new techniques and improving my skills.
