Notes

1. Pouf is worked with 2 strands of yarn held together throughout. Before beginning, wind single skeins of yarn into 2 equal balls.

2. Pouf is worked in three pieces: Body, Bottom, and Top.

3. Body is worked, back and forth in rows, in sections of Divider and Mosaic Square patterns.

4. Mosaic knitting creates color patterns with a technique that uses only one color per row. Two rows of one color are alternated with two rows of a second color. Some of the stitches in each row are slipped to bring up the color of the previous row, creating the illusion of working with more than one color in each row.

5. Slip all stitches as if to purl. On right side rows, hold yarn in back as stitches are slipped. On wrong side rows, hold yarn in front as stitches are slipped.

6. The Divider and Mosaic Square patterns can be worked by following the written instructions or reading the charts . Read right side rows from right to left and wrong side rows from left to right.

7. Work from the Mosaic chart as follows:

• Every row of the Mosaic knitting chart represents two rows of knitting. Each block of the chart represents one stitch.

• Work each row using the yarn color indicated in the first block of the row.

• Read each right side row of the chart from right to left. Then read the same row again from left to right for the following wrong side row.

• To work a right side row, knit all the stitches of the current yarn color and slip all stitches of the other color. To work the following wrong side row, purl all the stitches of the current yarn color and slip all the stitches of the other color.
