PATTERN DETAILS

This is a fun, quick little knit made using recycle yarn. My original cushion was made using crushed velvet yarn cut into strips. More information about the yarn can be found here - http://kittyfalol.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/making-super-chunky-yarn-from-crushed.html This is really a prototype for a floor pouffe that I plan to design later this year. It is made all in one piece, using just a 6 row pattern repeat. The circular shape is formed using short row knitting or partial knitting and, as the yarn is so thick, I was able to knit it up in a day. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY wrap and turn garter stitch GAUGE The gauge of my yarn is 5.5 stitches and 8.5 rows = 10 cm square or 3wpi. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Completely depends on the yarn used. Mine is about 40cm wide PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Recycled t-shirt yarn or crushed velvet yarn. An extreme yarn could be made using several yarns plied together. COLORWAY Any

Supplies Needed

Craft me Happy!
After doing a degree in knitwear design, I went on to become a jewellery designer and then a full time mum. I’m now finding a bit more time to pick up the knitting needles again and I've started to go back to my roots. I enjoy spinning and knitting the most, but I also run a fairly successful craft blog where I try out a wide range of crafts. Please stop by and find out what else I'm up to - http://kittyfalol.blogspot.co.uk
