Knitted pouffe in upcycled yarn

I wanted to try knitting something super chunky and had a look online for some inspiration. Chunky knitted pouffes caught my attention and I decided to have a go at my own project.

The pouffe is knitted using cotton jersey fabric (nearly 3m of 60″ wide in total) that I cut into 2cm strips and joined together to make one long ‘yarn’. Using garter stitch and 12mm needles I knitted a rectangle that was twice as long as it was wide. To shape the top and bottom I threaded a strip of fabric through alternate stitches and pulled it up tightly to close.
