Slightly in danger of turning this into a crochet blog, but it is taking over. Maybe more than Ticket has.
Here is my project before last, a crochet pouf:
I used the pattern from LVLY, which was simple, easy to follow and well written. Check the blog out it is great.
The pattern can also be found below altered slightly with my notes, for next time:
I used a no 10 hook and about 2kg of t-shirt yarn.
The pouf is crochet in a spiral, so you have to make sure you mark the beginning of each row, you know where the row ends and starts. It will be hard to tell otherwise.
The same stitch is used for the entire project. In US terms a double, in UK/AU a treble. That is you will yarn over then put your hook through. Figures 95-98 For ease it will be referred to as st (stitch) in the pattern
LVLY suggest you can make a narrower puff by skipping row 6-7-8 and row 13-14-15. I will be trying that next time.
- make a magic ring and chain 3 to count as first st. (My favourite magic ring tutorial)
- row 1, crochet 11 st. in the circle
- row 2, crochet 2 st. in every st. repeat 12x (=24)
- row 3, crochet 2 st. in every second st repeat 12x(=36)
