Knit Pouf

What’s more fun than a silly, round pouf? Not much, that’s what.

The one I made is relatively small – perfect for my toddler’s tush or as a playful accent pillow. The pattern, however, can easily be enlarged to create an even bigger pouf for your bum. Now get to pouffin’!

Circular or double pointed needles, US 15
Yarn sized accordingly
Tapestry needle

1. Cast 44 stitches onto circular or double pointed needles. To make the pouf larger or smaller, expand or decrease cast on by 4 stitches (i.e. 40 sts, 48 sts, etc).

2. Knit the following two rows until the piece measures around 1.5 ft long (again, make it longer or shorter depending on the number of stitches you are using).

Row 1: *K2, P2* until end of row
Row 2: K1, *P2, K2* until one stitch is left, K1

3. Once the piece is the full length, use a tapestry needle to thread the yarn through each of the stitches and cinch closed.

4. Stuff the pillow with filling of your choice, and then weave a piece of thread through those bottom stitches to cinch close and complete the pouf.

5. Now, enjoy this puffy ball of knit goodness. Lord knows my daughter did!
