Hi, my stitches don't quite look the same as yours. You do a yarn over in most of your stitches but some of your stitches in your tutorial are a yarn under - is this deliberate? I wondering if this is why I get the puff on the opposite side to you?

Lol, I actually never knew I was doing the yo "wrong" until a friend pointed it out recently! 🙂 It shouldn't actually effect the look of the puffs though. I believe this stitch is reversible actually. Is the front looking the same as the back?
Thank you for sharing!!! Sharing is caring!!!
