DIY reusable facial puffs

Skill level: Intermediate

Time required: 15 minutes

1 For this project, use a 3mm crochet hook and lightweight fingering yarn or baby yarn. Start by making four chain stitches.

2 Join with a slip stitch to the first stitch.

3 Make one chain stitch. Next, make a puff stitch: yarn over, insert hook into stitch, pull strand through, do the same three more times then pull your yarn through all the loops on the hook.

4 Finish the puff stitch with one chain stitch. Add one more chain stitch.

5 Repeat instructions 3-4 to make seven puff stitches in total. When you get to the last puff stitch, skip the additional chain stitch. Join with a slip stitch to the top of the first puff stitch.

6 Now you will be crocheting into the gaps in between each gap stitch. Make two puff stitches in each gap.

7 You should end with 14 puff stitches in total. Leave a 10cm tail and trim excess yarn.
