Main Body

Puff Stitch: Wrap yarn over the hook and insert the hook into the fourth chain from the cook. Yarn over again and draw up a loop. there should be 3 loops on the hook. Yarn over, insert hook through the same chain stitch, yarn over, and draw up another loop. there should be 5 loops on the hook. Repeat twice more until there are 9 loops on the hook then yarn over and draw it through all the loops. with the loop pulled through the puff stitch, make a single chain stitch, this secures the stitch and helps keep it more upright. it also spaces out the work more evenly.

Row 1 - 15: puff stitch in each space around row and join with a slip stitch

Row 16 - 20: single stitch arounnd row and join with a slip stitch

Sew in lining and handles.

Weave in all ends in at least three different directions to ensure that the ends of the project dont come loose though use.
