Pickles Fat & Happy, 1000 g
Circular needles US 15
Cast on 48 stitches on circular needles US 15. Knit one row. On the next row increase one stitch in every stitch (=96 s) Then repeat the following two rows until you have enough yarn left for one finishing row and binding off.
Row 1: *K2, P2* until end of row
Row 2: K1, *P2, K2* until one stitch is left. K1.
If you want stripes, always knit the first row in the new colour with only knit stitches, and then continue with pattern to avoid the purl stitches to be visible on the right side. This technique gives you a really neat result.
K1, K3tog until end of row.
Bind off. Use a thick needle, or your fingers, to get the thread through all the stitches. Tighten and assemble.
The pouf can be filled with a big duvet, some cheap IKEA cushions or if you want a real hard pouf; cut lots of old clothes into pieces. If your knitting is loose, and there are holes you can see through, you should use a pillow or duvetcover in a matching colour to put your filling into.
Close the pouf in the other end.
