Every year, I feel the same when the cold weather arrives. I want to fill my home with a warmth feeling. I crave for knitted throw and wool. Add to this, the fact that my son just started to crawl and you will understand my appeal for one or two knitted poufs. They are comfy as an occasional seat or a footrest. Plus, they do not take a lot of floor space. Finally, the soft edge of poufs made them safe and fun to play with for my baby.
CB2 sells their knitted poufs in 4 colors: medium grey, orange, camo green and pool blue. Except for the blue, the three other colors would look great in my living room.
Jacqueline, the owner of nanahome on Etsy hand knits pillows and poufs. Her knitted poufs have the same diameter but are 4 inch shorter than the model at CB2. Hers are made of 100% recycled cotton with a non allergic filling.
Finally if you enjoy knitting, you could make your own. You can find a free pattern to knit your own kid-friendly stool at Pickles, the blog of a small yarn shop located in Oslo, Norway.
