Was looking for quick scarf patterns for Christmas and liked the look of this one. However, the explanation of the puff stitch doesn't seem to be correct. I think it should be:

yo, insert hook through sp, yo, pull through, yo, insert hook into same sp, yo, pull through, yo, draw through all 5 loops on hook

Don't mean to overthink the designer, but the instructions as written will not make this lovely scarf.

Yes you are correct; basically if you know how to do a puff stitch, you can make any version of the stitch you like. For instance, some people like it with 4 stitches, others with 5, some with more.

Your description of the puff stitch may be clearer to some crocheters. Thanks you for your input
