i made a hassock for my friends jim and mitch--this one is about two feet in diameter and made using between four and six yarns held together.

the flip side!
a better picture of some of the yarn--and napoleon, peeking around the corner as a bonus!

Oooh I see.

I think that's a great idea. What's it stuffed with?

I really like the yarn.  What size hook did you use?

i think i just like the word "hassock", but that's fairly accurate but for the prayin'!  Smiley

i used the great big hook--it doesn't have a letter or number on it and i can't recall for sure, but maybe it's Q?  "speed hook"?

i bought a couple cheap bed pillows for the stuffing, which i usually think is cheaper than buying the bags of fiberfill.  it's stuffed with just under two "jumbo standard" pillow guts.

lately i've been really enjoying working with a variety of yarns held together and it not only uses up a lot of stash, even the grossest cheapie acryllic red heart yarn can be okay if it's blended with some other yarns to class it up a bit.  Wink  with the OG hassock https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=314999.0, i made sure to keep all the yarns the same and just change the colors, so the gauge was really even, but with this one i just threw in whatever i thought would look okay and didn't worry so much about specifics and i think it came out great--the colors are sort of a 70s throwback look, but the boys live in this amazing house over the ocean in trinidad and it's a bit of a 70s throwback, too, so it looks great up there, popular with cat and man alike!
