Knit Floor Poufs Digital Class
Please note that this listing provides access to the digital workshop we’ve built in collaboration with our artist and does not include the tools and materials shipped in our full workshop kit. Our full workshop kit can be found in Marketplace.
In this workshop, knitter Alison Abbey shares with us a detailed tutorial on how to knit a chunky floor pouf for the home. We’re introducing knitting by starting from the beginning – but the unique spin that this workshop brings is the application of two extra large straight needles and how to work with them to build home goods. This knitted pouf is a practical, beautiful handmade piece whether adding it to the living room (tuck a pair under the coffee table for extra seating) or by the foot of a chair in the bedroom. We love them in playrooms for kids or in nurseries by a rocker. They are soft and squishy enough to roll all over but if stuffed with a stiffer material, practical enough to serve as ottomans. We can’t wait to see what you create! And to add these new wonderful tools to your crafting toolbox.
This workshop can be explored in so many ways… experiment with color variation or size of yarn, try Alison’s pattern with a smaller or larger set of knitting needles for a new look. Adjust the pattern to a small round pillow for your sofa and cinch in the very center to create a flat cushion – try out an extra large pouf for lounging in a playroom. Experiment with materials – rope, which is challenging but extra satisfying to complete – produces a sturdier pouf with a unique look.
