DIY Wednesday: Puff baby knitted pouf

A few weeks ago I posted a request to friends or family who knit to make Design Within Reach's Flocks Pouf, which retails for a mere $800.


Pickles, a Norwegian DIY blog, came up with a home version they dubbed the Puff Daddy. I didn't really expected my plaintive request to get any response. But my clever friend Katie, who was stuck home sick for a day, decided to try it.


And here it is. I was so impressed and amazed. A dead ringer, right? It varies in only one small detail . . .



Scale.



However, Barbie says it's the coolest.
