The pouf is made with t-shirt yarn, which you can buy at for example Etsy and you have to crochet this pouf with at least a needle size that’s 10 mm thick. You can use a thicker needle but make sure your yarn matches the needle size. Thicker yarn and needle will only make the pouf bigger.
For a pouf 50cm cross cut you’ll need two 135 yard bundles, for a pouf 60cm cross cut you’ll need three
The pouf is crochet in a spiral, so you have to make sure that at the beginning of each row, you put a piece off material so you know where the row ends and starts
Chain 7 and close the chain with a slip stitch to a circle
– row 1, crochet 12 st. in the circle
– row 2, crochet 2 st. in every st. repeat 12x (=24)
– row 3, crochet 2 st. in every second st repeat 12x(=36)

Recycled t-shirts are very versatile! Another use for them:)
“crochet pouf pattern | LVLY” Venetian Blinds ended up being definitely engaging and helpful!
Within modern society that’s tough to do.
Thank you, Viola
Hi. Could you tell me what kind of stiches you use? Double crochet? Treble? Thanks. Rachel
Hi Rachel, in Us terms it’s a double crochet and in English terms the stitch is called a trebble
I’m not sure I understand the pattern…can you help me out? When I start the second round, I have 12 stitches. If I do 2 stitches per stitch, all around, it gives me 24, as indicated. What does the ”repeat 6x” mean? My pouf will be HUGE if I crochet 2 stitches per stitch, all around, for 6 rounds!
Also, on the third round, if I have 24 stitches, and do 2 stitches every second stitch… doesn’t it turn out to 24 at the end of the round, rather than 36?
Can you clear it up for me?
Sorry, it has to be 12x instead of 6 times. For example row 3
row 3, crochet 2 st. in every 2e st repeat 12x(=36)
In this row you have to crochet 2 double crochets in every second stitch from the row before and you have to repeat that 12 times
What does the 2e mean in your pattern?
All good I worked out what the 2e means
Sorry for the late respons and you figured it out already:)
Hi I can’t work out the 2e ….
It means second In Dutch we use an E
I am having a hard time figuring out what the little e means as well? Any help would be much appreciated!
The 2e means second, in Dutch we use the E. I will edit it in the pattern
Dankie vir die patroon – mooi poef! Groete uit Suid Afrika!
Thanks for the pattern 🙂
Can I use rope or wool? And if so what would you recommend?
If you use rope and there’s no stretch, you have to use another techniek because it will be to thick at the top and bottom, with wool I think it will be a bit easier. When you use the shirt yarn the circumference will be bigger easier because it stretches
How high is this pouf? I’m not using a stretch yarn. Can I make this pouf?
Hi Lou-Ann, You can make it as big as you would like, but as I already said in the other you have to use a yarn with a bit of stretch!
I’m totally new to crochet but I made it half way thru the pattern with the correct number of stitches. But I’m totally confused on Row 13. What does “crochet every 7th en 8th st. Together” mean? Does it mean double crochet in every 7th stitch like the first half of the pattern? Or something different happening here? Thanks!
Hi sorry for the late reply!!! You have to decrease now, you crochet 6 then you follow the steps you see in this link, http://www.crochetspot.com/how-to-crochet-double-crochet-decrease/
Adorable!! What did you stuff it with?
Adorable! What did you stuff it with?
sorry for the late reply, you can stuff it with foam flackes, old pillows, old stockings, feathers
When you say half crochet… do you mean hdc– (half double crochet)??? — I’m kinda confused 😦
So many people made the pouf, but you’re the first to notice my mistake, you’re completly wright, It must be chain 7 an close with a slip stitch:)
How tall is the large poof? Preferably in cm.
Could you reply asap? I’m making the pouf now and I am wondering if it will be tall enough. Thanks
Could you be more specific because I don’t know what you mean.
You can make it as big as you like
Hi! What are the final dimensions of the pouf. It says 60 cm cross but how high? Thank you!
You can make it as big an as high as you like, just add rows. To make it bigger add increasing rows, to make it higher add rows without increasing or decreasing.
I made this pouf higher and wider so when I start to decrease do I still start with the 7th and 8the stitches
No then you start at the 9th and 10th stictch, etc
