Bernat Blanket Ridged Puff (Pouf Ottoman)

The plush Bernat Blanket Ridged Puff is an essential accessory to any casual room. The stylish, textured pouf-style ottoman provides a soft, comfortable place to put your feet up on and relax after a long day. Plus, the durability, compact size makes it the perfect lounge spot for little ones!

Use a gauge of 7 sc and 8 rows (4") to crochet a puff that measures approximately 22" tall. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
