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

knitted pouf tutorial

Schermafbeelding 2013-02-01 om 19.48.11

I have to admit, this is a tutorial on how to make a pouf from Pickles and not my own, but I love it. Pickles has a very good pattern and if I find the time I really want to make this.

Spool knitted bracelet

DSC_0841I love the french knitting dolls, but I’m often wondering what to do with al the strand, so I made this tutorial. This is also a great tutorial for kids

You’ll need a french knitting doll, the one in the picture I bought here. 3 colors yarn, the one I used is acryl and some electric wire.

First make a strand and than you put the wire in the strand (see picture)

Close the ends and put the bracelet through each other, and this is the result:)
