    • Chain (ch) 40 (or adjust to your desired handle length).
    • Slip stitch (sl st) to join the chain to the MR.
    • Join with a sl st to the first sc. (20 sc, 40 ch)
  2. Switch to the Pouf Color:
    • Chain 3 (counts as the first double crochet (dc)).
    • In the same stitch (st), dc 3 times.
    • In each stitch around, dc 4 times.
    • Join with a sl st to the 3rd chain on the starting chain-3. (80 dc)
  3. Final Round:
    • Chain 3.
    • In the same stitch, dc 3 times.

Notes:

  • The pouf will naturally curl and take form as you crochet due to the heavy double crochet increases in Rounds 2 and 3.
  • For visual learners, consider following along with the video tutorial provided by Sweet Softies.
