Pouf the magic ottoman

I finally finished a crafting project!

I was wanting a foot rest for E’s room and thought that a pouf would be perfect given that her room is so small.

I found a pattern through a blog I read, Pickles, but I, of course, modified it a bit.

It was a pretty easy project. Thr first time I was able to ise my largest needle size! Plus, since I was only doing a garter stitch, I took the opportunity to try out continental knitting rather than my usual American throwing.

I kept dropping stitches since I was knitting with three strand at once, but I eventually got the hang of it!

I used three pillows rather than a comforter for stuffing so it is a little lumpy. But it serves it’s purpose :)
