The zig zag puff stitch is such a beautiful and textured crochet stitch. 

It creates a lovely zig zagging stitch pattern and it’s easy to learn with a detailed step by step photo tutorial. 

What’s extra great about this stitch crochet pattern is the softness the puffs create. One thing to be aware of though, it’s for sure a yarn “eater”.

 

I’ve also included a way for you to grab the printable version in a bundle, more details about that further down.
