The Pompom Stitch is a type of lace design featuring pops of textured puff stitches throughout.

The stitch is a fairly open stitch as a combinations of chains and double crochet stitches form almost a trellis around the puff stitches.  Once the stitch pattern is established, the pattern is an easy to remember two row repeat.  I could see this stitch being used in a variety of projects including lacy cardigans and tops, market bags and shawls.

Materials for this Tutorial:

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in a single colour. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns.  However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose, even experiment with colour!

The Crochet Pompom Stitch


Ch – Chain

Puff – Puff Stitch ([Yarn over and insert you hook in the stitch indicated] five times, yarn over and draw through all the loops on the hook.  Puff Stitch made.)

Rpt – Repeat

Sc – Single Crochet

Sk – Skip

Sl St – Slip Stitch

Yo – Yarn Over


This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. You may work the stitch in one colour or many.  I will be working the design in a solid colour.

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains.  For this stitch pattern you will need a multiple of four stitches, plus one for your foundation chain (4 + 1).

For example, ch 25.

Row One:

Dc in the 4th ch, ch 2, dc in same st, *sk 3, [dc, ch 2, dc] in next st; Rpt from * across to last st, dc in the last st, ch 3, turn.

Row Two:

In the ch-2 sp work puff st, *ch 2, sc between next two dc, ch 2, puff in the next ch-2 sp; Rpt from * across, dc in top of turning ch, ch 3, turn.

Row Three:

[Dc, ch 2, dc] in the top of each puff st across, dc in the 3rd ch of the turning ch, ch 3, turn.

And that’s it!

For the rest of the pattern, repeat rows 2 and 3.  Fasten off, weave in your ends.
