A few weeks ago, we posted about a pattern for a DIY knitted pouf. We have a lot of crafty folks in the Apartment Therapy community who were excited to try their hand at this project. Apartment Therapy reader Charlyne sent us these pictures of her own pouf and gave a few tips...
Charlyne's main piece of advice for any pouf knitters, is to be careful not to tie the seam too tightly, otherwise there will be a bit of an indent in the side of the pouf. (This might not sound serious, but that indent can make your pouf look more like a baby's bottom than a sea urchin!) Rather than stuffing the pouf with a duvet, as recommended in the instructions, Charlyne used what she had on hand, and bundled the stuffing from old throw pillows into a square of fabric.
Great job Charlyne! Did anyone else attempt the knitted pouf? Post a link to your project in the comments below!
