Stitch of the Month - March 2017
The Puffed Stitch is all about texture. It's a style of the bobble stitch where a cluster of five stitches are worked back and forth over a number of rows creating a three-dimensional texture or a 'puff' in the knit fabric. It also uses more yarn than a stockinette or lace stitch because of the extra rows that are knit to create the puffs.

Puffed Stitch

Row 1 and 3 (WS) Purl
Row 2  Knit
Row 4  K1, *(K5, turn, p5, turn) 3 times, k10; repeat from * to last st, k1.
