Stitch Guide

st = stitch
ch = chain
sl = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet

Author's Note: When you come back around to start each row do not join with a sl. Just start the next row as stated it will spiral up as you go.


Using larger hook and carrying both yarns together, ch 4 and join with sl.

Row 1 - 10 sc in loop.

Row 2 - 2 sc in each st around.

Row 3 - *1 sc in the next st, 2 sc in the st after that*, repeat around.

Row 4 - *1 sc in the next 2 st, 2 sc in the st after that*, repeat around.

Row 5 - *1 sc in the next 3 st, 2 sc in the st after that*, repeat around.

1 sc per st for the next 5 rounds.

Put the nose right through your starting loop and the eyes where they look symmetrical, being careful to push the posts through the stitches and not force it through the yarn because you will break your yarn and your pygmy puff will unravel.

*1 sc in the next 3 st and skip the fourth* andrepeat around, making sure to pull snugly so that the skipped st will cozy up to the one next to it.

Stuff with fiberfill really tight so that the pygmy puff becomes a ball shape.

*sc in the next 2 st and skip the next st*, repeat around.

*sc in the next st and skip the one after that*, repeat around.

If your hole is still too big at this point continue around untill it is small enough to stitch closed.

Make a knot and poke your yarn needle into the pygmy puff near the hole for your last st.

Poke the needle all the way through the puff coming somewhere out the front.

Pull really tight so there is a dent in the back and snip off the yarn close to the puff, this will make the yarn pull right back inside the stuffed area of the puff and be neat and tidy.

Switch to the smaller hook.

Ch4 join with a sl.

10 sc in loop.

*1 sc in next st 2 sc in the one after that*, repeat around.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
