Poofy Stockinette Stitch

I call this stitch the Poofy Stockinette because of the fun texture the strategically placed increases and decreases. The pattern creates a “poofy” three-dimensional fabric that would look great in a cowl, or beanie. While the wrong side is not particularly interesting, it also has a texture that could work on a project that may show the wrong side, like a scarf.

The decreases in the pattern created raised “poofs” throughout the fabric.

Suggested Materials

Any weight yarn would work for this pattern, but make sure the yarn does not have too much texture (i.e. no boucle) or you will lose the stitch definition of the fabric. See some good examples to use that I love below.

The “Zen” Tutorial

I’ve been doing something different with some of my video tutorials. It is completely voiceless and just plays very relaxing music as it walks you through the stitches. Each stitch is worked very slowly and multiple times so you can see what needs to be done. Download the pattern before beginning to follow along.
