It’s been so fun to watch my family use our new completely handmade piece of yarn furniture. My kids love jumping on it and I’ll love re-fluffing it to make it into a square again. It’s substantial, stylish and looks and feels like a “real” store-bought pouf or bean bag. Today, I’m excited to share Part 2 of this free crochet pouf pattern so you can finish yours up too!

In , I shared the instructions for creating the six different sampler squares that make up this free crochet pouf pattern. I’m looking forward to seeing how you use interpret this pattern in your own creative way. While I really love the variety of textures in the “sampler” style pouf, I can also see choosing one of the bobble-type stitches and making six identical squares using that one stitch for a more uniform texture. Either way, this is one of those projects you’re just gonna put your mitts all over. ????

– 6 inexpensive pillows – Plastic grocery bags

Unless your squares are all exactly the same size , they’ll benefit significantly by being gently blocked. Since Pound of Love yarn is 100% acryilic, we want to avoid steam blocking it heavily because the fabric will lose all its structure. Instead, you can use T-pins to stretch your squares to approx. the same size, spritz them with a good dose of water and let them hang out for 24 hours.

It’s okay if your square sizes aren’t identical after blocking. You’ll be able to accommodate some small differences during seaming.

The squares are joined using a simple seaming technique. If you find yourself struggling spatially with the construction of the cube-shaped pouf, take a look at a tissue box to study how each side fits together to form a cube.

Cut a doubled-over piece of MC yarn approx. the length of your wingspan. Thread both strands through a tapestry needle and double over once again, creating four strands of yarn to sew seams with.

With right sides facing out, join two squares by seaming back and forth as if lacing one side of a shoe. The seam should be tight enough to prevent stretching once stuffed, but not so tight that the stitches bunch. Continue seaming squares with RS facing out until two unseamed sides remain.

Your pouf can be stuffed with a variety of fillings, many of which you can recycle from around the house. You may choose different materials depending on how squishy or firm you want your pouf to be. Keep in mind it will compress a bit over time, so it’s a good idea to include at least one filling material that will give it some structure like foam, balled up plastic bags or newspaper.

For the sample, I used four pillows around the perimeter of the pouf. I stuffed balled up plastic bags in the corners and a large plastic bag stuffed with other plastic bags in the center of the pouf to add stability. Check out the video overview above to see the process in action.

Since your pouf is crocheted, there will be some slight gaps within the fabric as it stretches. For this reason, I recommend putting any loose filling into large bags or pillowcases before filling the pouf so as to prevent slow leaks over time.

Use the same seaming technique described above to join the final two sides. Weave in any remaining ends.

Give your new pouf few solid whacks to fluff it up and then sit back, put your feet up and enjoy your new crocheted furniture!

Hi, I love love love this pattern! Just wondering, how big is the one in the picture? I was surprised that the pattern makes an 18″cube. Not sure how much yarn I need to make one the same size as yours? Thanks.

The Sampler Pouf – Free Crochet Pouf Pattern Part 2

The squares are 18″ each, but the final pouf is much larger when it’s put together. The dimensions and yarn amounts are listed at the top of the pattern and should give you a good idea if you want to swap out yarn. ????

Hello! I adore this idea and finding a way to reuse pillows that no longer exactly match my home and plastic bags is especially cool. Are the plastic bags in there noisy in the pouf? I could see that getting annoying if it is. Thanks!

There’re pretty compressed in there, so I don’t find that they have a lot of room to make scrunching sounds, if that makes sense. I also think putting the pillows around the outside of the clump of bags sort of helps insulate any bag sounds. ????

Your pouf is so cute! I think my kids would really love one! Have you needed to wash it? Do you think it’s possible to do so?

My kids love it! I haven’t had to wash it yet. I think your best bet would be to add a zipper or buttons to make the cover removable. The yarn is very washer-friendly, so as long as you can remove the pouf filling, you should be good. ????

Hi, Jess I love ♥️ your crochet designs! You have great style right up my alley ????!!! Thanks for sharing ????????????❤️ I have question on your pouf I am making one and to sew together how do I start do I sew 4 together and then top bottom?

I was wondering about the filling. I lost a bunch of weight and I’m wondering if I could stuff this pouf with some of the old clothes that aren’t really good enough to donate? Old sweats with pilling, ripped seams, stains, etc.? The stuff I was going to toss out might make a good stuffing. I don’t want it to be lumpy.

Congrats on your weight loss. I def think that would work. I found that if you pack the densest filling in the middle and then surround it by pillows on the outside, it doesn’t feel lumpy, but it does have some good structure.

Good luck! This part is pretty fun. ????
