Porch pouf

Round 1: *1 sl s in 1 s, 2 sl s in the next s*
Round 2: *1 sl s in each of the next 2 s, 2 sl s in the next s*
Round 3: *1 sl s in each of the next 3 s, 2 sl s in the next s*

Continue in the same manner with 1 sl s more between the increase s, making a large circle. You will have to stretch the circle out to actually see the size of it as it pulls together quite firmly. When you are happy with the diameter, continue doing 1 sl s in each s until you are out of yarn. Fill the cover with the pillow(s) and pull together in the bottom with a strong yarn.

If you want to actally close the pillow under we suggest you continue like this: (In that case you´ll need more yarn)

*Work 1 sl s in each of the X (as many as you had between the increases at the top) s, work 1 sl s in 2nd s from where you are*

Repeat this round until the pillow is closed, pull together.

What kind of yarn do you suggest?
