I'm trying to make a french pattern, and my french isent great i'm using a translation scheme i found and it works well. But now the pattern says "mouchet" stitch. I have found this link:

http://www.crochet-loisirs.com/crochet/maille-base/mouchets.html

But i cant get heads or tails on this. Anyone know what stitch this is?

Thanks in advance.

it looks kinda like puff stitch (http://www.nexstitch.com/pix/v_puff_lrg.jpg) just not quite as puffy...
reading the description with my limited french i think it might be puff stitch because it says something about doing the same thing 3 times and then pulling through all the loops, which sounds like puff stitch directions.  but someone better with french might be able to tell better.

It is a puff stitch. There are variants on how puffy you want it, dependinfg on the number of repeats you do, though.
