CROCHET HOOK SIZE 8 mm – or size needed to get 8 dc in width x 10 rows vertically with 3 thread Big Fabel = 10 x 10 cm.
ACCESSORIES: 1-2 down duvets for filling (it is important to use down as this is the best to shape the form). A cheap duvet is perfectly fine – we have used summer down duvets that weigh approx. 1400 g).

CROCHET INFO: Replace first dc at beg of every round with 1 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round. ----------------------------------------------------------
POUF: Worked in 2 parts, fill it and work the 2 parts tog.
PART 1: Crochet 4 ch on hook size 8 mm with 2 threads pink/yellow/green and 1 thread dark pink (= 3 threads) and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work dc in the round as follows: ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 6 dc in ch-ring. ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 12 dc. ROUND 3: * Work 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 dc. ROUND 4: * Work 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 dc. ROUND 5: * Work 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 dc. Continue inc like this (i.e. on every round, work 1 dc more between every time 2 dc are worked in same st) until there are 144 dc on round and piece measures approx. 50 cm in diameter, insert 1 marker. Then work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 22 cm from marker. Cut the thread.
PART 2: Beg as on first part and work the same way until there are 144 dc on round and piece measures approx. 50 cm in diameter.
Fill the pouf as follows: Place the 2 duvets tog as one thick duvet and pull a jersey sheet over one side of the duvet. Push the duvet in to the largest part of pouf (make sure that the jersey sheet is at the edge). Place the second part of pouf on the top and work tog with 3 threads as follows: 1 sl st in first dc on one part, 1 sl st in first dc on the other part, * 1 sl st in next dc on the first part, 1 sl st in next dc on the other part *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in first sl st from beg of round. Cut and fasten the threads.
