Something else I’ve been working on – a crochet pouf. I vaguely followed the instructions from here. The only thing I changed was I reduced the number of front post double crochets so the stripes are wider. I think it turned out ok, maybe a little bit too holey at the sides. Next time I would use a chunkier yarn -this was Aran/worsted weight cotton yarn.
I stuffed it partly with some proper stuffing I bought, but that stuff is pretty expensive! So I also hid some old wool scraps and some old clothes inside there. It might be a littttttle bit lumpy as a result 🙂 but my theory is it will flatten out with use.
