Free Crochet Floor Pouf Tutorial

Free crochet floor pouf tutorial! I’m currently obsessed with floor poufs!  I’ve been tempted to buy one, but I knew I could make my own.  If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been working on 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 crochet pattern, so I designed a 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.

The crochet floor pouf tutorial 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 was only a limited offer at Michael’s, so I’ve been on the hunt for a good substitution for you. Fast forward to 2020, and I’ve finally found the perfect substitution! Starlette Chunky from Mary Maxim.

It’s the perfect thickness and texture. It’s also soft, making it great on the hands to work with. I love the gorgeous range of colours they offer. Check them all out HERE.

I get asked a lot about yarn substitutions, so I want to give you another alternative. Bernat Blanket yarn is a great choice as well.

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

The crochet flour pouf is one of those patterns that you’ll want to keep making over and over!

I remade it a few times, but I’ve finally settled on Starlette Chunky as the best yarn for the floor pouf tutorial. This yarn is so thick you can hardly notice any holes. The above picture shows the original poufs. Check out the images below with Starlette Chunky.

I’ve also added an insert to the crochet floor pouf. With an insert, you can use bean bag filling. This will make your pouf hard enough to sit on.

The crochet floor pouf is worked from the top down. I’ve used two pillowcases to make an insert and stuffed with one 64 oz bag polyester fiberfill. 2 options for closure; drawstring closure and permanent closure. Ch 2 counts as a stitch.

Insert:

*Use 2 standard pillowcases
Rip one side seam on each pillowcase. With RS facing hand sew or use a sewing machine to sew pillowcases together. Jumbo size pillowcase made. Leave the top hem of pillowcases open for the drawstring. See the video tutorial for further clarification.
