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:


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.

Yeah that was my first thought too, i just was not sure, it looks like a puff stitch but not quite right. Anyway thanks for helping i might just make it a puff stitch.

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