Boxed Puff Stitch – Pattern Description
The Boxed Puff Stitch is a variation of the classic stitch with the same name, where the puff stitches are alternated with double crochet stitches that “enclose” them and give it the boxed look.
It works great for baby afghans, modern blankets, cardigans and other wearables.
This is an easy two-row repeat pattern, perfect for beginner crocheters who are looking for a simple pattern with an intricate design.

Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 4chs + 3chs. My starting chain is 27ch.
Row 1: dc in the 5th ch from the hook, ch1, ps around the previous dc post, *sk1, dc, sk1, dc, ch1, ps around the previous dc post*, repeat from * until you have 2chs left, sk1, dc in last ch, turn.
Row 2: ch4, sk1, dc, *sk1, dc, sk1, ps around the previous dc post, sk1, dc*, repeat from * until you have 2sts left, ch1, sk1, dc in last st, turn.
Row 3: ch3, *sk1, dc, ch1, ps around the previous dc post, sk1, dc*, repeat from * until the end of the row, turn.
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until you have the desired length.
