crochet pouf pattern

poef grijs blogThe pouf is made with t-shirt yarn, which you can buy here and you have to crochet this pouf with at least a needle size that’s 10 mm thick, you can buy them here. 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 2, crochet 2 st. in every st. repeat 12x (=24)

Pattern knitted pouf

DSC_0551 poef gebreid eindresultaat

Here I will show you how the knitted pouf is made

It’s not diffucult and  the pictures will also show you how it works.

Material:

I used three bundles of The shirt yarn ( wich you can buy here)

You use knitting needles 18mm, I made my own, because I wanted them longer.

How I made the pouf, size cross cut 39 cm

Cast on 22 stiches with two threads of  Zpagetti yarn, if you have any other thread which is thick enough, feel free to use it.

22 stitches is equal to about 40 cm wide (15,7 inch)

Continue in garter stitch

DSC_0529 poef gebreid 1

Work till you have the length two times longer than you work is wide (80cm)(31,4 inch)

DSC_0531 poef gebreid 2

So if you want to make a bigger pouf cast on more stiches and make your work longer!

Close the short sides of your work

DSC_0533 poef gebreid 4

Than work a thread through the long side of your work, but skip each time one row. In the pictures it is shown with a purple thread.

DSC_0540 poef gebreid 6

when you did this all the way, you pull the thread very hard, so your work wil close!

DSC_0541 poef gebreid 7

Then make a inside cover out of strech material, wich is a little bit bigger than the knitted piece!

DSC_0542 poef gebreid 8

Put the inside cover in the knitted piece and fill it firmly, with whatever you like, I filled it with feathers.

DSC_0543 poef gebreid 9

Close the top of the inside cover firmly.

DSC_0544 poef gebreid 10

Then close the top the same way as you closed the bottom, so skip each time 1 row and pull and close firmly!

And there it is, your own beautiful POUF, made by you!!!!
