Daisy Puff Blanket (Jasmine Stitch Blanket)

I found out about this stitch on Pinterest. Various posts featuring this stitch would pop up in my feed and, just like every other thing I want to make on Pinterest, the patterns/tutorials are all in Russian. I watched every tutorial I could find and was able to figure it out, so now I’m offering this tutorial to you, with a few minor changes from the original.

This blanket can be made in any size, no conversions or calculous required. It may not look like it, but this is a beginner crochet pattern! It’s much easier than it looks so even if you’re new to crochet, give it a try.

Materials

  • Medium weight yarn in any color.
    This pattern uses a lot of yarn! I’m making a king sized blanket from medium weight yarn. It will take about 4 kg (40 100g skeins) to complete. Smaller blankets will require less. Try buying one skein initially and see how far it gets you, then calculate the amount required for your desired size.
  • Crochet hook compatible with your yarn.

Terms

  • CH: Chain
  • FO: Finish Off
  • JS: Jasmine Stitch
  • PS: Puff Stitch
  • SC: Single Crochet
  • YO: Yarn Over

Puff Stitch Procedure (PS)

  1. CH 2
  2. Pull out your yarn about 2 cm, YO (Figure 1)
  3. [Insert your hook into the first CH and pull up another 2 cm loop, YO] x 3. You should
  4. have 8 loops on your hook by the end. (Figure 2)
  5. *All loops in this pattern should be the same length
  6. Place your middle finger between the last loop on your hook and the remaining 7
  7. loops. (Figure 3)
  8. Pull your yarn through all 7 loops, keeping your finger between the 8th loop so it
  9. doesn’t get pulled through. (Figure 4)
  10. Insert your hook into the 8th loop space (where your finger was before) and pull
  11. through a loop (Figure 5)
  12. YO and SC 1. CH 1 to secure. (Figure 6)
  13. *CH 1 after every stitch in this pattern to prevent them from coming loose!
  14. Repeat steps 2-7 to create subsequent puff stitches. (For step 2, insert your hook into
  15. the SC from the previous stitch).

Jasmine Stitch Procedure (JS)

  1. Pull out your yarn about 2 cm, YO
  2. [Insert your hook into the same stitch and pull up another 2 cm loop, YO] x 3. You
    should have eight loops on your hook by the end. (Figure 7)
  3. In the next CH space:
    [pull up a loop and YO] x 4.
    You should now have an additional eight loops on your hook for a total of 16 (Figure 8
    & 9)
  4. In the next CH space:
    [pull up a loop and YO] x 4
    You should now have an additional eight loops on your hook for a total of 24 (Figure 9
    & 10)
  5. Place your middle finger between the last loop on your hook and the remaining 23
    loops. (Figure 10)
  6. Pull your yarn through all 23 loops, keeping your finger between the 24th loop so it
    doesn’t get pulled through. (Figure 11)
  7. Insert your hook into the 24th loop space (where your finger was before) and pull
    through a loop.

Row-by-Row Prattern

Row 1 (Foundation Row):

  1. Take a measurement for the size of your finished blanket
    1. Example: I’m making a 200 cm wide blanket
  2. PS until you have a row as long as the width of your final
    blanket (Figure 14)
    1. Example: I made a row of 100 puff stitches that measured
      200 cm in length

Rows 2 through ∞ :

  1. PS 1 (Figure 14)
  2. JS across entire row. You should have the same number of JS as PS from the first
    row (Figure 15 &16).
    1. Example: My blanket had 100 JS per row.
  3. Once your blanket is as long as you like it, you can CH 1 to FO (Figure 17).
