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 this easy crochet pouf pattern that I completed.

I was inspired by all of the crochet/knit floor poufs in stores, because they seem to be everywhere now!

Despite its size, this fun pattern is actually a pretty quick and easy project to crochet. If you have crocheted a hat before, then you can make this trendy crochet pouf.

Most of the stitches are ones that a beginner has used, making it a great option for anyone looking to tackle a larger project for the first time. If you need a refresher for crochet in the round or front post crochet, be sure to check out my learn to crochet ebook.  

Crochet Floor Pouf

In the midst of creating this crochet floor pouf pattern, 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!?

Floor Pouf

Crochet Floor Pouf Pattern:

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

Round 1: dc 10 into the circle, sl st to join, ch 2 {10}

Round 2: dc into first st, fpdc around the same st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {20}

Round 3: dc into first two st, fpdc around the second st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {30}

Round 4: dc into first three st, fpdc around the third st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {40}

Round 5: dc into first four st, fpdc around the fourth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {50}

Round 6: dc into first five st, fpdc around the fifth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {60}

Round 7: dc into first six st, fpdc around the sixth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {70}

Round 8: dc into first seven st, fpdc around the seventh st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {80}

Round 9: dc into the first eight st, fpdc around the eighth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {90}

Round 10: dc into the first nine st, fpdc around the ninth st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {100}

** at this point, you no longer want to increase stitches, so you will follow the pattern created in round 10

Round 11-24:  dc into the first nine st, skip the tenth st, fpdc around the previous fpdc, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {100}

Round 25: dc into first seven st, dc decrease, fpdc around the previous fpdc, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {90}

Round 26: dc into first six st, dc decrease, fpdc around the previous fpdc, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {80}

Round 27: dc into first five st, dc decrease, fpdc around the previous fpdc, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {70}

Round 28: dc into first four st, dc decrease, fpdc around the previous fpdc, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {60}

Round 29: dc into first three st, dc decrease, fpdc around the previous fpdc, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {50}

Round 30: dc into first two st, dc decrease, fpdc around the previous fpdc, 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, fpdc around the previous fpdc, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {30}

Round 32: dc decrease, fpdc around the previous fpdc, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {20}

Round 33: dc decrease around, sl st to join {10}

Using the end of the yarn, pull to tighten the hole, and use a yarn needle with the yarn to sew the hole closed. 

Floor Pouf

This gorgeous crochet pouf is a fun accent to any home decor. It provides extra seating and can be used as a footrest.

You could even turn your finished pouf into a side table. This one took a couple of evenings of crochet for me. We are enjoying it from every angle.

Want to change things up? Use this free pattern as a jumping off point.

Create a larger pouf by adding in a few more increase rounds. Try a super bulky yarn or make your own t-shirt yarn. Use different stitches to design your own unique look.

Tips and Tricks:

  • When choosing different projects, always check the skill level needed, to be sure it’s a good fit for you.
  • Crochet hook size can make a real difference in the finished size of your crochet items. If you tend to crochet quite tightly, it may be beneficial to go up a size. If your crochet stitches tend to be loose, go down a size.
  • Only have worsted weight yarn, but the pattern calls for bulky yarn? No problem! Just use two strands of worsted weight yarn, held together.
  • For easy washing, choose a cotton yarn.

I’m still having issues a with the stitches increasing between rows 11-24!! I’ve had my mother in law look at but can’t find the issue!! What am I doing wrong? I have read all the comments-still can’t fix it

i am confused when i get to the end of round 10 do i carry on following row 10 to get the height or do i carry straight on to row 11,but if i do that it wont be tall enough

what i actually meant in my question when i get to the end of round 10 how do i make the circumference bigger do i just keep increasing

I like your pouf very much, but I am writing to thank you for another issue you resolved for me. My couch looks very much like yours might have before you made cushion covers with a dropcloth or similar material. Admittedly, I have never made these (wrapped in fabric and pinned which must be continually adjusted). I love the way yours look and will be sewing my own set soon. Making pillow covers brings it all together, so I will copy those too! Thank you so much for your ingenious solution!

Thank you, great!!!!

Can you please tell me what and how much you stuffed this with please

Hello,
I crochet in my spare time for myself, but my sister decided that I should try to sell some of the things I make at our local craft fair. I was wondering if it would be okay to sell products that I make from your patterns, specifically the Crochet Floor Pouf Pattern. If not I completely understand, just please let me know.

Thanks, Nichole

Hello, I love the floor pouf pattern. Can I use 2 yarns of 4 worsted yarn?

My base circle is wonky. It won’t lay flat. I’m using a jumbo yarn (Loops and Threads Chenille Home) and a 9mm crochet hook… Will it work itself out?
