Crochet Tutorial: Yo-Yo Puff

crochet yoyo puff
Have you ever fascinated with the fabric yo-yo puffs to make this and this and this and this? If you can crochet, I have a crochet version to make those yo-yo puffs!!!!
As you may notice, this is not a normal crochet circular shape, it is a real double layer yo-yo puff just like the fabric version. I crocheted a summer hat for my daughter by using these yo-yo puffs… you will get to see this in my next tutorial [Update: click the summer hat link to go there]. There are so many great projects for fabric yo-yo, now we can transform them into crochet version…. may be a comfy baby blanket, what do you think?
