Poufs are very popular in home decor. They are everywhere!! Some of them can cost you a pretty penny but now you can have one or several for very little cost. Any width or height of pouf can be created by simply switching up the number of increase rounds and/or plain rounds. It can be a decorative pillow, floor pillow, footstool, seat, or even just something for the kids to tumble on...you decide...the possibilities are endless!! The picture that includes the chair shows the pattern's versatility. The pattern rounds were adjusted slightly and the pouf was stuffed with thick foam to create a footstool. Wonderful!!
