How to make the puff stitch in a magic circle

This is to show you step by step how to make a puff stitch when crocheting in the round. I am using Loops and Thread's Necessities in soft butter a size J hook. However it doesn't matter what yarn or hook you use for learning a new stitch.
We start with a magic circle and then pull the loop up
Then we yarn over

Go under the circle and yarn over

Pull through the circle and yarn over and go back through the circle, yarn over

Pull through ( five loops on the hook) yarn over

Go through the circle and yarn over ( almost done)

Pull through the circle and yarn over and pull through all 7 loops on your hook

Push the loops together and secure your stitch with a chain

Don't worry if your stitch doesn't look exactly like this.  When I teach this stitch in classes it takes a good deal of my beginner students some practice with getting the loops all the same size!
