Learn how to make a cute and sturdy knit pouf footrest with this photo tutorial. The pattern uses jersey yarn (made from eco-friendly T-shirt leftovers), which will take a lot of wear and tear with very little pilling. It's a great material for making poufs.
The pattern also explains how to stuff the pouf with either soft or firm fillings.
There are two sizes shown: LG (16x12 inches) and XLG (18x13 inches). Both are great sizes for footrests or low seats.
Difficulty: Moderate. You will need to know how to knit in the round. You will also need to know how to do a M1 increase and a K2TOG decrease, although it is briefly explained in the pattern. There is also a little bit of assembly required to stuff the pouf.
