I liked it very much and would definitively try to make my own, it is a simple and quick
crochet project using beginners’ stitches.
Choose a bulky, heavy weight yarn, with a 9mm hook.
Approximately 5 skeins of yarn {120 yards each} are needed for a pouf of this size with
32 oz of poly fill {stuffing}.
Abbreviations
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch

**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.

ch 2 {30}
Round 32: dc decrease, fpc around first st, repeat around, sl st to join, ch 2 {20}
Round 33: dc decrease around, sl st to join {10}
sew in the end of the yarn and tighten and tie the hole to close
Happy Crocheting
