For some time now I have dreamed about making a pouf out of knitted fabric. And finally I have started the project. I searched the internet (mainly ravelry and pinterest) for a free pattern that will fit the mental picture I have of this project. I ended up with this:
It is the “Puff Daddy” pattern by Christien Meinderstsma, and is found on the Pickles homepage. The pouf is knitted on US #15/ 10 mm needles, but I think I am going to look for bigger needles. Since the pouf is to be knitted with fabric, I think maby US # 19/ 15 mm needles would be better.
I went through my fabric stash the other day to find a fabric I wanted to use. First of all I needed a fabric I have plenty of, and that easily match other fabrics in case I don’t have enough. I ended up with a black and white fabric I bought at IKEA many years ago. It was used as curtains in our first apartment, so it also have a sentimental value. But since the fabric is currently “curtanised”, there is some work to be done before I can actually start knitting. First I need to pick out all the seams, and cut the fabric into strips. I already started this tedious work.
