Crochet Bath Puffs

Okay are we getting ready for those holiday gifts yet. Here is a simple easy bath puff you can make a give as a gift. Why not mix it with some homemade soap that you can find at a craft show during the holidays or some bath gel. I use one of the net bath puffs, but this one might just replace that one.

I'll be off to the fabric store tomorrow to get me some yarn. Thanks to Crochet Spot for the tutorial. BTW, Rachel from Crochet Spot also indicates that cotton, although super absorbent does get quite heavy and you would probably do better when making this to use nylon yarn. Here is her Cotton Experiment.
Skill Level: Beginner

Finished Size: approximately 5” (13 cm) in diameter
  • Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 190 yards / 4 oz)
  • Crochet Hook K (6.5 mm)
  • Scissors

Crochet Pattern: Bath Puff

Round 1: ch 3, 30 double crochet in third chain from hook, place marker
Round 2 - 3: 6 double crochet in each double crochet around
Finish off weaving end into bath puff.
Strap Row 1: chain 30, slip stitch in first ch made forming loop, attach to center of bath puff.

Enjoy, I'll post a pic of mine when I get it finished.

  2. Hi, I love your instructions. They are very easy to follow for me as a beginer. The problem Im having is that Its huge!! Its taking a long time and its so big! I looked online at other homemade ones and they dont seem to be as full. Am I doing it wrong? Do 30 dc and then in each double do 6 doubles. Then do 6 in each of the ones I just did. thats like 1080 double crochets?

    Could you let me know if Im doing it right?

  3. Nichole, mine didn't turn out that large, but I might have used a smaller crochet hook. Check out the link for Crochet Spot as Rachel wrote the tutorial and might be able to give you a few tips.
