Add a dash of color to your home’s décor with Valley Yarns Minneola! Part cushion, part ottoman, this stuffed pouf is perfect for propping your feet up or adding an extra seat on the floor. Minneola is knit seamlessly in the round from the bottom up, beginning with the center of the base and increasing before working even for the sides and decreasing to close up the top. Stuff your pouf with quilt batting, poly-fill, or even worn out clothes or sewing scraps for a variety of different firmness levels. Chester yarn is a bouncy bouclé blend of wool and alpaca that has a soft feel perfect for cozy garments, accessories, and projects for your home!
