Puff the Magic Dragon...

Not that puff. This puff:

I finally did it. I made a hat. (For myself). :) After making all of those granny squares, the idea got into my head that puff stitches were the coolest things ever. I wonder why.

I needed to make a hat because I lost mine. It was also crocheted, but nothing as cool as this. Basically, it is puff stitches. That's about it. There were some increases and decreases in there, as I wanted it to fit closely to my head. I love winging these projects. They always seem to turn out well. It is so thick, it stands up by itself.

I don't know why my camera refuses to take proper pictures. The colors in this don't look anything like it does in person. It is black with a moss green to lavendar gradient. See? It fits perfectly!

You even get a glimpse of the hubster in the background. :P

So, the puff stitch is awesome. To do the puff stitch, yo, insert hook in indicated stitch and pull up a long loop. Do this three times. Yo, and pull through all seven remaining loops. Chain one to lock. Easy, right? It really is, and the texture is awesome. Try it!

That's funny we were both doing the puff stitch. I'm glad to see Pat is still alive, I haven't seen him since October. You are really good at freestyling the crochet, I might need your advice when it is time to put my baby blanket together.
