Spruce up your home with this super-easy, stash-busting crochet pattern!Ā 

About two years ago, I purchased 20 skeins of LionBrand Wool Ease Thick and Quick from LionBrand when they were running one of their 10 skeins for $10 sales. What was I going to do with it?? I didn’t care, but I needed it if it was only going to be $20 total. Fast forward to now; I have a different perspective and less space in my house (read more about why here), and I needed to declutter this yarn. It just so happens that this yarn perfectly matches one of the colors on the area rug I recently purchased for our living room and boom! The inspiration hit! I wanted to make a floor pouf. You might notice from the photos that it’s a little bit of a lumpy pouf. That is where my disclaimer comes in. Instead of just stuffing this with Polyfil stuffing, which I recommend if you want a pristine pouf, I recycled some old pillows and then filled in the gaps with Polyfil. Its lumpy and imperfect, but I used what I had instead of going out and buying more. Also, I completed this project in one afternoon and my baby was napping, preventing me from heading over to my local Joann Fabrics. šŸ˜‰ Excuses reign with this project but hey! My kids love it, I decluttered 12/20 of those balls of “what will I do with this” yarn and it was an amazingly quick pattern.

Speaking of decluttering, if you’d like to make one of these poufs with yarn you already have, you can also hold 6 strands of worsted weight yarn together instead of three strands of Wool Ease thick and quick (or any other super bulky weight yarn).Ā
