Jasmine stitch

 I saw on YouTube this stitch and loved it too much .she was crocheting with two' strands of very fine yarn and using some graph for multicolors.it looked so easy but when trying the hook got stuck in passing through 3-3 puffs. I wanted to make shawl or poncho but got disheartened.
Then I got content with crocheting this coaster with some scrap yarn.the problem was still there but at least I completed it.crocheting is very soothing to your nerves . You can always pull out the thing and do something new .but this time it was very irritating.but seeing the things made with puff stitch on YouTube it looks very pretty.

Grafting live stitches of sleeves to arm hole

When we have only knit stitches then we first insert the needle from front to back as in first figure and then for the next stitch from back to front as shown in the second figure.

And then we pass the needle under horizontal baron the armhole side.
When we have purl stitch after the knit stitch then we insert the needle for the knit stitch from front to back through which we have already passed our needle for the previous stitch and then for the purl stitch we insert the needle from front to back. As shown in the figure below.inthis waywe  have to pass the needle through each stitch twice.

After that we pass the needle through horizontal bar on the armhole side.
