DOUBLE YARN TIP:
Use yarn from both inside and outside of the ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching both strands at the same time - to avoid a thick yarn when fastening.

GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next round K YO twisted (i.e. work in the back loop of st instead front) to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

POUFFE WITH CABLES:
Worked back and forth on circular needle - READ DOUBLE YARN TIP.

Cast on 6 sts on circular needle size 15 mm with 4 strands Eskimo or 2 strands Polaris.
Row 1 (= RS): * K 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* 4 more times, K 2 in last st = 12 sts.
Row 2: K all sts. NOTE: Always K YOs twisted on next row (i.e. work in back loop of st) to avoid holes. Insert a marker in 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th and 12th st.
Then continue in GARTER ST - see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st before every st with marker (= 6 sts inc) - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc on every row from RS 7 more times = 60 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
On next row from RS, inc 12 sts evenly = 72 sts. P 1 row from WS. Now work pattern as follows: Work A.1 (= 6 sts) 12 times in width (NOTE: No edge sts are worked due to thickness). When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, work the first 5 rows in A.1 (last row from RS). Then P 1 row from WS. Now continue in garter st until finished measurements. On next row from RS, dec 12 sts evenly by K 2 tog = 60 sts.
Now insert 6 markers in the piece without working: Insert a marker in 1st st, then insert 5 markers in the piece 9 sts apart. 9 sts remain after last marker. On next row from RS dec 1 st after every marker. Repeat dec on every row from RS 7 more times = 12 sts. Now K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 6 sts. Cut the yarn but leave enough yarn for assembly.

ASSEMBLY:
Pull strands through remaining sts and tighten tog, tie and fasten strand without cutting (= bottom of pouffe). Sew the opening, sew in the outer loops of outermost sts with 2 strand Eskimo og 1 strand Polaris. Fill the pouffe as follows (it might be wise to have someone to help you to make it look nice). Place 1 duvet (of 1400 g) or 2 duvets (of 700 g on top of each other) and pull a stretch sheet over. Push the duvet into the pouffe (make sure that the sheet is facing out). Tighten tog top of pouffe. Fasten yarn tightly.

Buonasera, vorrei eseguire uno dei due pouff, voorei però usare un filato in cotone, è possibile? quale mi consigliate? dove osso trovare il down duvet necessario per l'imbottitura? grazie cristina

DROPS Design 17.02.2017 kl. 16:48:

Buongiorno Cristina, questi pouff sono lavorati con dei filati troppo spessi che non hanno alternative in cotone, sono belli così proprio perché sono molto soffici. Per l'imbottitura può provare su internet o in negozi di tessuti per casa della sua zona. Buon lavoro!

Joanne 24.06.2016 - 03:18:

I am unable to read the comments for this pattern. Is there some way I can view them translated into English? Also in Row 2 of the cable pouffe are all knit stitches worked into the back or just the KYOs?

DROPS Design 24.06.2016 kl. 08:49:

Dear Joanne, on row 2, work only YOs twisted to avoid holes, all other sts will be worked as usual K sts. You are welcome to use any online translator to read comments in all other languages. Happy knitting!

Guten Tag, Würden Sie eher die Eskimo oder die Polaris für ein gleichmäßiges Maschenbild empfehlen? Danke :)

DROPS Design 09.05.2016 kl. 20:42:

Liebe Rebecca, Sie erhalten sowohl mit Eskimo als auch mit Polaris ein sehr gleichmässiges Maschenbild.

Tak, havde nok lidt travl, og fik ikke læst rigtig😅

Mette 05.02.2016 - 00:11:

Hej Bente. Der står: Strik *1 ret, slå om*, gentag *-* 4 gange til, altså i alt 5 gange, og strik 2 masker ret i sidste maske = 12 masker. Håber det lykkes nu. Strikkehilsen fra Mette

Bente Møller 04.02.2016 - 18:21:

Hej. Jeg kan ikke få det til at passe. Slå 6 m op. 1 ret, slå om, g.4 strik 2 ret = 10 m. Men i opskriften står der = 12 m. Og sæt et mærke i 2,4,6,8,10,12 m. Jeg er total på herrens mark😟 Mvh. Bente
