Hey, everyone! I’m Jessica, the founder behind The Hook Nook, and I REALLY like to make pretty things. For the last several years I’ve gone from teaching myself to crochet, to selling my makes to friends and family, to opening an Etsy shop, to pattern designing and now I am so fortunate to have worked with some of the biggest brands and companies in the fiber industry from all around the world. You can now find my own The Hook Nook brand designer crochet hooks, yarn and craft accessories at in my online shop and at various retailers!

DIY Crochet Faux Furry Floor Pouf Pattern


Hey, friends!!

Last month I shared the most delicious Fur-osty Scarf pattern using Lion Brand Go For Faux Thick & Quick yarn, and this month and I’m using the same stuff, but coming in hot with something completely different!!

I don’t know about you, but as the seasons change, so does my need to change up my home decor. As the chill starts to set in the air and the fireplace gets started for the first time this season, I’m SO inspired by all things cozy. I mean, come on.. Fall IS the best season of the year, amiright?!

This month I am so excited to be working with my friends at JOANN Stores again to bring you a super duper easy and beginner-friendly DIY floor pouf project that you can get done in the same amount of time as it takes to pick out one online.. Not even joking. You get to use your 25mm crochet hook, the thickest, most scrumptious fluffy yarn and get the near-instant satisfaction of  completing a project in record time. Plus, you can make two, stack them up, and use it as a gorgeous foot ottoman! Win!

Take a peek at my new Fluffy Floor Pouf Cushion crochet pattern and get started on one (or several!) for yourself! My kids have already claimed them as their own and are SO obsessed with how soft and cozy it is!!
