DC SQUARE YOKE WITH RIBBONS
I used aproximately 60 grs. of Sport or Light weight baby yarn

ch - chain
sc – single crochet

The puff stitch for this sweater requires only 5 loops. Here’s how I make it:

2. Wrap the yarn over the hook, insert the hook in same stitch as before. YO the hook and draw through. There will be 5 loops on the hook.
3. YO and pull through all 5 loops.

Hello and welcome to the ville! Sk is abbreviation for skip.
