I am obsessed with the knitted pouf. I'm sure you've seen them. I feel like they are everywhere right now. I just love the limitless colors, the shape and the texture they add. They're so fresh and fun - and look pretty darn comfy too.
I first heard of them from dutch artist Christien Meindertsma.
Check out her monster needles? I believe she is making a knit rug in the above photo - which I am also crazy about. Another project to put in the experimental project list. Christien’s pouf is available throughDWR for $800.
For a more affordable option check out CB2's version for $79.95.
Now I really wasn't kidding when I said I want to make my own. I found a pouf/puff pattern from one of my favorite knitting sites, pickles.
It actually looks really simple. So as soon as I get through my long list of baby hat orders I am attempting the pouf. It's even a great word - pouf. It makes me chuckle every time. My needles are calling me. Time to settle on the couch and get some baby hats pounded out. Nothing like a winter storm and some inspiring images to put me in the knitting mood.
