A Slight modification of the new (and adorable) Puff Stitch Scarf, which in turn is inspired by Vickie Howell's Urban Jungle hat. I had one skein of yarn and decided to use it up with this pattern. It wasn't long enough to make a full scarf, but was perfect for a cowl. Added some buttons and ... viola! This took me about an hour to make. Here's my recipe!



Materials:
1 skein of Stitch Nation Full O' Sheep (100% Wool, 155yds/100g) in Aquamarine
US H (5mm) crochet hook

2 buttons
tapestry needle
sewing needle & thread

Gauge:

7 sts x 6 rows = 4" in puff stitch

Abbreviations:

ch: chain
st: stitch
puff st: yo, insert hook into st and draw up loop (3 sts on hook), *yo, insert hook into same st and draw up loop* 3 more times. 9 sts on hook. yo and pull through 8 loops on hook, then yo and pull through last 2 loops on hook.

Finished Measurements:

Approx. 6.5" (17cm) tall x 22" (56cm) long

Pattern:

Foundation chain: ch 26.
Row 1: In fourth ch from hook, work a puff st, *skip 1 st, ch 1, puff st in next st* until end. 11 puff stitches. ch 3 and turn work.
Row 2:  In next ch1 sp, work a puff stitch, *ch 1, puff stitch in next ch1 space* until end. ch 3 and turn work.
Repeat Row 2 until you're just about out of yarn. Fasten yarn and weave in ends.

Finishing:

Attach buttons one row in from the foundation ch on the third st in on each side. The ch1 spaces of the fabric are like built-in button holes.

Wear, share, and enjoy!
