Coming to you straight from Add Some Stitches blog, Megan shows us how to make these uber-adorable and very useful Crochet Bath Puffs. Pair it with some homemade bath goods for the perfect holiday gift! Read below and visit Add Some Stitches blog for more great ideas.
From Megan: I’ve made these bath puffs before. They’re easy to make, and fun to use (so says the people I’ve given them to!). I suggest using cotton yarn of your choice (not bulky!!!). I use Bernat Handicrafter, or Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn. (I’ve used them both and they both work great!) The problem I’ve seen with Sugar n’ Cream is you have to buy 2 or more balls of the 2oz sizes. (I bought 2 of them and was about 10 stitches short) So, pick your yarn, get your hook ready and let’s get started!
Abbreviations: st = Stitch ch = Chain sl st = slip stitch dc = double crochet rnd = round
I use a size G hook (4.25mm)
Ch 4, form a ring by joining the first ch with a sl st
Ch 40 (This will be the loop for hanging the puff- if you’d like it longer/shorter, you can adjust it now) sl st into the center of the ring
Rnd 1: ch 2, dc 40 into center of the ring, join with a sl st (For me, it got REALLY tight trying to fit them all in, but if you don’t, your stitches towards round 4 will be loose and it won’t be a tight ball-like puff.)
Rnd 2: ch 2, 3 dc in each st around, join with sl st
Rnd 3: ch 2, 3 dc in each st around, join with sl st
Rnd 4: ch 2, 3 dc in each st around, join with sl st
Tie off, and weave in ends… then enjoy your new bath puff!
