In this beginner-friendly knitting class, you will learn how to make a cozy chunky knit pouf pillow that is perfect for decorating a couch, reading nook, kids room, etc. Poufs originated in the Ottoman Empire in the 18th century, and have since evolved from hard, backless seats to soft cushions bringing a little hygge to your home decor.
Using a soft wool roving yarn and a giant circular knitting needle, you will learn how to make a basic knit stitch as you knit the cover for your pouf. You will also learn how to make and fill a stuffing bag to put inside your pouf. At the end of class, you will assemble it all and take home an approximately 12-inch-wide and 8-inch-tall pouf.
You will also learn how to adapt the pattern to make larger poufs, and how to stuff them for sturdier uses, such as a footstool or low seat.
Your instructor will provide the following materials:
• Chunky wool yarn
• Size 50/25 mm circular knitting needle for you to keep
• Felt fabric
• Yarn needle
• Yarn for cinching up stuffing bag
• Polyester fiberfill stuffing
• Instruction sheet
Students are asked to bring the following materials:
- bag lunch and/or snacks if needed
No experience needed, although beginning knitting experience is helpful.
