How to Crochet Spiky Puff Stitches

I used a different color per row for the how-to crochet stitch video below!
The Spiky Puff Stitch is what puts the 'palmetto' in the Palmetto Wristcuff! Don't the stitches look sort of like palm fronds? Also, the new pink one, above, looks like aloe vera plants when the spike stitches point upward. (Crochet jewelry pattern pdf for the Palmetto Wristcuff is downloadable at my DesigningVashti site and in Ravelry.)

I created a crochet stitch how-to video and uploaded it to Youtube today. I'm still practicing at making videos and it's not too bad! For my next trick I'm going to attempt to embed the video right here in this blog post.

If it doesn't work, here's the link to the video.
