This stitch is made up of a 1-row repeat.

Abbreviations:

RP: Yarn over and pull through one loop on your hook (the first loop on the hook). Now yarn over, pull through two loops (loops 2 and 3 on your hook). Continue to yarn over, pull through two loops until you reach the PF loops (a group of 12 loops). At the PF loops, yarn over and pull through 7 , then yarn over and pull through 7. Yarn over and pull through 2 until you reach the next PF group and repeat the PF yarn over sequence. Repeat until you are left with one loop on you hook.

Tunisian Simple Stitch (TS): Insert your hook behind the front loop of the vertical stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop.

Puff Stitch (PF): Yarn over, then insert your hook into the stitch and yarn over. When you pull the hook out of your stitch, you should have 2 loops on your hook. Repeat two more times in the same stitch so that you have 6 loops on you hook.

Stitch:

Chain 20

Cast-on a foundation row:

Insert your hook into the second chain from hook. Yarn over, and pull the hook out of the stitch. You should now have two loops on your hook. 
Go to the next stitch, insert your hook into the  stitch and yarn over, then pull up a loop. You’ll now have three loops on your hook. Repeat until you have 6 loops on your hook.

PF in the next 2 stitches.

Cast on a loop in the next 5 stitches.

PF in the next 2 stitches.

Cast on a loop in the remaining 5 stitches of the chain.

Complete a RP.

Row 1:
TS.TS. TS. TS. 2 PF in the space between the 2 PF of the foundation row. TS.TS. TS. TS. 2 PF in the space between the 2 PF of the foundation row.
TS into the remaining 5 stitches.

Complete a RP.

Repeat Row 1 until you complete as many rows as you want. In each repetition, crochet the PF into the space between the PF stitches of the previous row.

Bind-off:  Finish the last RP for the last row of your project, then insert your hook into the second stitch of the row (as if you were working a KS), pull up a loop and slip stitch (pull the top loop through the bottom loop, so that you are left with just one loop on your hook). Repeat until you have crocheted one single crochet for every stitch of the row.

On the PF, you’ll notice a stitch right above the puff. Slip stitch into that top stitch.

Happy Crocheting!
