Finished this pouf/foot rest for the Nursery we're working on, love it! I couldn't find hat I wanted in stores or in Yellow (plus they were $85+) so I made my own.  Smiley


I used three strands of Lion Brand Homespun in Golden and two strands of Stitch Nation Full o Sheep in Honeycomb held together using US 15 needles. Total I used 3 balls of each brand (as a little less yardage in the Full o Sheep, total cost $14).

I was inspired by the Puff Daddys Baby pattern but ended up using this Drops pattern as the short rows provided better shaping and easier to sew closed at the end. I just CO 28 stitches and worked in Seed Stitch instead of Garter.

I found a matching yellow sheet at the thrift store and wrapped it around an old balled up comforter to stuff the pouf. Worked great!

(I also made the side table! Blogged here)
