The Ridges and Puffs crochet stitch pattern features a couple of beautiful, thick textures that are fairly easy to work.

These textures are worked using puff stitches and back post double crochet stitches. The two textures are interspersed between rows of double crochet stitches. Therefore all of the texture is pushed to the front of the fabric.

I like the contrast in the textures in this Ridges and Puffs stitch pattern. The puff stitches are quite raised and then separated by the ridges that are created by the rows of back post double crochet stitches. I could see this stitch being used in some cozy blankets and scarves!

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of cotton yarn. This yarn is a worsted weight yarn called Pima Cotton by Lion Brand Yarn. I will also be using a 5 mm crochet hook. The hook you will see me using in the video tutorial below is a Clover Soft Touch Hook also available on Lion Brand through the link above.

Fp Puff – Front Post Puff Stitch (Bring your hook in front of your work and insert your hook around the post of the next double crochet stitch as follows: [yo, insert your hook around the post of the next st, yo and draw up a loop] twice, yo and draw through all the loops on your hook.

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

To begin, make a slip knot and then a foundation chain. For your foundation chain you may use any multiple of stitches for your foundation chain. I will be working with an odd number of stitches.

For example, ch 21.

Row One:

Dc in the 4th ch from your hook, and in each st across. Ch 3, turn.

Row Two:

Sk the 1st st, fp puff around the next st, *bpdc around the next st, fp puff around the next st; Rpt from * across to the turning ch, dc in the top of the turning ch. Ch 3, turn.

Row Three:

Dc in the next st and in each st across. Ch 3, turn.

Row Four:

Ch 3, bpdc in the next st and in each st across. Ch 3, turn.

Row Five:

Dc in the next st and in each st across. Ch 3, turn.

And that’s it!

For the rest of the pattern repeat rows 2-5. Fasten off, weave in your ends.
