The Flower With Stem Stitch is a beautiful flower crochet stitch perfect to use for lots of different crochet projects.

Use it to make crochet blankets, garments, your imaginations is the limit here.

Try using it in a simple test square first to get a feel of the texture before you start a bigger project with it. The nature of puff stitches is that it requires a lot of yarn. The positive is the texture & look it gives.

I’ve personally used in the Spring Flower Blanket Square.
