Fluff & Stuff: Puff Stitches (17:33)
Puff stitches are a popular type of clustered stitch. In this lesson, you’ll learn four fun varieties: starting with the basic puff stitch and working up to the hot cross puff. Soon you’ll be able to add the right “fluff and stuff” to your crochet projects!

Cobblestones: Bobble Stitches (18:29)
Your next stop on the cluster-stitch tour is the classic bobble. Beth shows you step by step how to create stitch patterns such as the spot stitch, the lace-like bobble-and-V and the sideways bobble.

Fenced In: Post Stitches (15:57)
In this lesson you’ll dive into post stitches, which are worked around the base of the previous row of stitches. Master the basic front post and back post stitches before Beth shows you lovely variations such as the single rib, ripple and subway tiles patterns.

Beth shares some elaborate textures that give a sophisticated look to any project. Basket weave uses post stitches to create grand all-over texture, while the dots and diamonds texture is a sophisticated stunner. You’ll love working and wearing these patterns in your next project!
