Free Crochet Pattern
Yarn: 2 strands of Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn held together
Hook: 6.50 mm K
Abbreviations: R- row, sl st – slip stitch, ch – chain, tr – triple crochet stitch, ch4sp – chain four space
Triple Crochet Stitch: yarn over your hook 2 times, insert your hook into the specified stitch (for this pattern you will be inserting the hook into the ch4sp), yarn over and pull up 1 loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook , yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook again, yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops on your hook.
R1: ch 15, sl st to 1st ch to make a ring
R2: ch 30, sl st into the main ring (made in R1) to join.
Note: This will be your ‘hanging string’ do not work into this later.
R2 continued: (ch 4, sl st to the ring to join) 15 times
Remember to skip the chain 30 throughout this entire process!
R3: *(ch 3, 10 tr) in the ch4sp, sl st to the next ch 4 space**. Repeat from * to ** for each ch4sp around (total of 15 times).
Leave a long tail and finish off.
Weave the yarn tail, in and out, of each ch4sp around. Tighten to cinch closed and sew through the centre of the pouf a few more times to secure the ends.
Note: I actually knotted mine (shhh!!) and then sewed through the middle a few more times to be sure it wouldn’t loosen up or come undone.
