Hexagon Yoyo Puff Rug

Hexagon Yoyo Puff Rug by Knotted Mom

Hexagon Yoyo Puff Rug

I absolutely fell in love with the yoyo puff stitch, but was struggling with ideas on what to make with them.  I finally decided on a rug and the Hexagon Yoyo Puff Rug was the end result.  This was the first time I ever made a crocheted rug using a non-slip rug backing, but I am completely exuberant with the outcome.  You can make all kinds of things with crochet yoyo puffs, so get creative.  Remember, that you can also use any size yarn and hook to create numerous different looks.  I can’t wait to see all of your creations!

Yoyo Puff Stitch Tutorial
