Here are promised pictures of my Puff -daddy!
Elaine and I took our promised trip to cincy and got our comforters (and a few other items ).
Back to the puff! It was so easy and we have many options for yarn choices. I am next going to try 128 triple stranded.
For my Puff I cast on with waste yarn. I wanted to try Kitchner, which worked really well. I was afraid sewing cast on and bind off ends together or 3needle bind off might end up too tight along the side. However I kitchnered with the wrong side out. Otherwise I would have had 3 rows of knit together. I stuffed with 2 comforters from IKEA. They cost $7.95 each. You might start scouring yard sales now! Remember, you want your stuffing to be some what flexible, so don’t by a cheap stiff comforter! Evan if it is only $1.00!!
The pattern calls for 35 stitches cast on. My was somewhere around 39? I knit for about 45″ on size 17 needles. I used 4 skeins of Malabrigo Rasta. I left just enough yarn to kitchner and draw up both ends!
This is truly a really fast project. What a great house warming gift!
Hey -Retreat starts in 3 hours!!
See you then!!
