gray pouf cover


hurray the gray pouf cover is finished! 

gray pouf by elisabeth andree

in an earlier post about the cover i had written that i had to work with two shades of a variegated yarn, but the effect is not bad at all. the circles were created themselves while crocheting.

i have this pouf made in the same way as the yellow floor cushion, the difference is that when i was almost at the side of the pouf, i stopped increasing the number of stitches.

both parts of the pouf cover i hooked together with the wrong sides facing each other and alternately crocheted a h dc into the edge of one half and then one h dc in the other half. the last part of securing the seam was tricky because the pouf is too large to hold in a handy way and crochet at the same time. well it worked – with a lot of moaning and grumbling i must admit. if i want to wash the cover, i have to detach a part of the seam and reconnecting when washed and dried.

what you think of the end result?

see you next time!

  7. @Lamina Thank you:)I do have bought a cushion ready made from a Dutch company, here is the link: http://kussengigant.nl/contents/nl/d81.htmlThe cushion that I have is – measured from side seam to side seam – 70 cm, it is very firm and you can sit well on it. Sometimes ready made is nice and easy;)

  8. I love it – and it looks lovely in your very nice living room. 🙂
