Free Crochet Floor Pouf Pattern

Crochet Floor Pouf Pattern
Hi there!  If you are looking for an awesome crochet project then you have come to the right place!  

Kim from 733, Mandy from Sugar Bee Crafts and I have been having fun hosting Project Crochet all month long.  

Before wrapping up this series I wanted to share the pattern for the Crochet Floor Pouf that I completed.  I was inspired by a crochet floor pouf found on etsy and every other crochet/knit floor pouf in store.  They seem to be everywhere now!


Crochet Floor Pouf Pattern #crochet #pattern
This is actually a pretty quick and easy project to crochet.  If you have crocheted a hat before then you can crochet a floor pouf.  Most of the stitches are ones that a beginner has used.  If you need a refresher for crochet in the round or front post crochet be sure to check out my learn to crochet series.  In the midst of creating this floor pouf I discovered that it was spelled "pouf" and not "poof".  And did you know that an ottoman or floor pouf is called a hassock out East?  What would you call this floor pouf?


  
Crochet Floor Pouf Pattern
Choose a bulky, heavy weight yarn.
I used Bernat Roving yarn {the colour is Bark} with a 9mm hook.
Approximately 5 skeins of yarn {120 yards each} are needed for a pouf of this size with 32 oz of poly fill {stuffing}.


Abbreviations
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
fpc = front post crochet


Crochet Floor Pouf Pattern

ch 4, sl st into the first chain to create a circle, ch 2

Round 1: dc 10 into the circle {10}
Round 2: dc into first st, fpc around the same st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {20}
Round 3: dc into first two st, fpc around the second st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {30}
Round 4: dc into first three st, fpc around the third st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {40}
Round 5: dc into first four st, fpc around the fourth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {50}
Round 6: dc into first five st, fpc around the fifth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {60}
Round 7: dc into first six st, fpc around the sixth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {70}
Round 8: dc into first seven st, fpc around the seventh st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {80}
Round 9: dc into the first eight st, fpc around the eighth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {90}
Round 10: dc into the first nine st, fpc around the ninth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {100}
Round 11-24: repeat round 10 {100}
Round 25: dc into first seven st, dc decrease, fpc around eighth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {90}
Round 26: dc into first six st, dc decrease, fpc around seventh st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {80}
Round 27: dc into first five st, dc decrease, fpc around sixth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {70}
Round 28: dc into first four st, dc decrease, fpc around fifth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {60}
Round 29: dc into first three st, dc decrease, fpc around fourth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {50}
Round 30: dc into first two st, dc decrease, fpc around third st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {40}

**at this point add the stuffing.  Poly fill will only work if your stitches are small and tight.  If you have larger stitches, with bigger holes I would recommend sewing a cotton bag to place the stuffing in before placing it into the pouf.

Round 31: dc into first st, dc decrease, fpc around second st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {30}
Round 32: dc decrease, fpc around first st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {20}
Round 33: dc decrease around, sl st to join {10}

sew in the end of the yarn and tighten and tie the hole to close 

Crochet Floor Pouf Pattern
A crochet floor pouf is a fun accent to any home.  This one took a couple of evenings of crochet for me.  We are enjoying it from every angle...

  9. So, I'm tackling your pattern and I have a question!
    When you get to rows 11-24, where you continue row 10, are the fpc's supposed to get further from the previous row's fpc's as you go around?
    I'm afraid to move forward before clarification because I don't want to have to pull everything out and do it again. lol

    1. Hi Lauren! Your fpc stitch will go around the previous rows fpc. So the fpc forms a line through the entire pouf.

    2. Try a row or two and see if it looks right :). Good luck! xo

  10. Hi Heather
    I'm making it from t-shirt yarn and i found it hard to crochet with the front post crochet... so, I changed it to one more dc wherever it appears.

    mi question is about rows 11-24 - Should I add dc wherever appears front post crochet?

    THANKS

    1. No need to add a DC ~ continue the stitches around using the FPC as one of the stitches {where the previous FPC stitch was} Hope that helps! xo

  11. This is AWESOME! I can hardly wait to try it. My question is about the dc decrease. Could you clarify how to do that? Decreasing always trips me up. Thanks!

    1. I don't have a tutorial for DC decrease although you should be able to find one on You Tube! ha ha I always think of decrease as completing half of a stitch then starting a new one before completing the whole stitch. Good luck!

  15. Thank you so much for your pattern! On rows 11-24, how do you keep the stitches from increasing?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Be sure to dc into each stitch around counting 100 stitches for each round. As long as you are no longer increasing {placing two stitches into one stitch}, your poof will stop increasing and start to form an ball shape. Hope that helps :)
