Free Crochet Floor Pouf Tutorial

Free crochet floor pouf tutorial! I absolutely love floor poufs!  I’ve even been tempted to buy one but of course I knew I could make my own.  If you follow me on instagram you’ll know that I’ve been working on a my attic studio.  A place just for me and my enormous yarn stash.  Decorating is the final and best part of this renovation.

It’s been a while since I offered a free pattern so I came up with this free crochet floor pouf tutorial. It’s my little thank you to all my amazing followers!  Thanks so much for following and liking all my creations.

This pattern is quick and easy with loads of texture!  I love the ribbed look and using Bernat Chunky cotton gives this pouf a nice stiff rope like texture.  Bernat Chunky is new and only offered at Michael’s so I knew I should work out a substitution for you.  I’m certain everyone can find regular cotton whether it be Bernat handicrafter or another brand.  I tested it out using 2 strands and 3 strands.  I found 3 strands to be the best substitution in size and texture.  The photo below shows 1 strand Bernat Chunky in Robins egg, 2 strands regular cotton in Strawberry and 3 strands regular cotton in tan.

I get asked a lot about substitutions so I want to give you lots of options. Bernat Blanket yarn is a great alternative.

Buy Bernat Blanket, Bernat Baby or Bernat Boho and now you can also get Bernat Pet

My kids love how soft it is. I made this floor pouf in Bernat Baby Lemon Lime.

 Notes:
The Pouf is worked using 2 strands of bulky yarn held together, You may use a combination of 2 strands of any bulky yarn, or 1 strand of extra thick Super Bulky yarn (like Bernat Blanket) or 3 strands of worsted weight yarn to make this pouf. For 1 strand you will need Approx 750 yards, 2 strands 1500 yards, and 3 strands 2250 yards. Pouf is worked from the top down. I’ve used 2 pillow cases to make an insert and stuffed with one 64 oz bag polyester fibrefill. 2 options are given for closure; drawstring closure and permanent closure. Turning ch counts as a stitch unless otherwise indicated.

Insert:

2 standard pillow cases
Rip one side seam on each pillow case. With RS facing hand sew or use sewing machine to sew pillow cases together. Jumbo size pillow case made. Leave top hem of pillow cases open for drawstring. See video tutorial for further clarification.
