Tuesday Tutorial: Crochet Bath Puff

December 28, 2010 at 11:08 am (Crochet, Tutorials)

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!

    Those are so awesome-looking, and I love the green aspect of them. I saw a whole bin of the nylon poufs they sell at big box stores, with a reminder to “replace every [?] days”… that’s a lot of tossed poufs, man. I hope I can figure out how to make these… I know how to make stitches, just need to learn to follow a pattern first!
