I love using my bath pouf, but I am always buying new ones. They either stretch out, or I just feel like I have had them long enough and they are no longer “clean.” That is why I am so fond of these crocheted versions. Just toss them in with the towels on laundry day, and they are ready to keep on cleaning! Such a money saver. Plus, they feel even better then the nylon net variety. Grab some cotton yarn and hook yourself a spa day!
The first pouf I made was a bit bigger then I wanted, but I know that some people like them like that. So I kept that pattern and edited for a medium sized version as well. Both sizes are included in the pattern. The large works up to be about 4″ across, and the medium works up to be about 3″ across.
OK, I am aware there are about a million of these patterns out there. The reason I am writing my own is because I am making a series of spa set patterns. When all the patterns are done, I will put up a post with links to all of the patterns.
US H (5.0 mm) (**EDIT 11/9/13, Rosie, one of my awesome fans, suggests using an I hook to make the pouf fluffy and soft!)
