Are you tired of plastic net bath poufs? Need a luxurious present in a hurry? Something for a stocking stuffer?
Try this crochet cotton bath pouf! It’s soft to the touch, machine washable, and makes you feel like you are in the spa.
This is my take on the cotton bath pouf, I have tried a few patterns out there but I wanted one that had tighter ruffles. I can work one up in about two hours. The finished bath pouf is about 4.8″ circumference.
What you need
- 2 skeins of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Yarn
- darning needle
- 4.5mm crochet hook
- ch – chain
- dc – double crochet
- slst – slip stitch
Cotton Bath Pouf Pattern
Ch 5, slst to the first chain
Ch 35, slst to first chain (this is your handle)
Row 1 – dc 30 times into the ch 5 circle. slst to first dc, ch 2 (tip: I find it easiest to keep the handle to the back while I work the pattern)
Row 2 – dc 3 times in the first st, dc 4 times in next st and in each one around. slst to the first dc. ch 1
Row 3 – 2 sc in first st, 3 hdc in next, 3 dc in next st, and in each until you are almost out of yarn, then 3 hdc, and 2 sc. Fasten off and bury ends.
If you are using a large skein of cotton you can either keep going to the end of the row or use your best judgment on when to end it. Don’t worry, you won’t notice that the row is not complete it will all blend in!
