Crochet Pattern: Fluffy Bath Puff





The Perfect Fluffy Bath Puff
(Updated 07/12/10)






Because these bath puffs are made from a cotton blend by Lion Brand (50% cotton, 50% acrylic), I make them tight, but medium sized. Double crocheted (larger) 100% cotton bath puffs tend to get too heavy when they get wet. This size is good for a child or adult.





Materials: 1 ball of medium weight 50% cotton/50% acrylic and crochet hook K.

Round 1: Chain 3, loop the chain back to the 1st chain.  Add 15 single stitches in the center of the circle you just created.  Chain 40 -- This will form the hanger. Loop the chain (hanger) back to the beginning of round 1 and add 1 single stitch to connect the hanger and with the ring.

Round 2 thru 6: 6 single stitches in each chain of the 15 chains.

Finish off



NOTE:  It takes about 1 hour for 'intermediate' crocheters.

Hi Annabelle -
This is a great idea to crochet bath puffs!! I can't wait to try out your pattern.

A quick question, what size crochet hook do you use? I will probably be using a worsted weight cotton or cotton/acrylic blend.

Annabelle said...

Hi Alohablu,

Thanks for the compliment! I use an "I" hook to create my bath puffs, especially if you'll be using worsted weight cotton. Remember that if you do make them with 100% cotton, they will get very heavy and don't maintain their shape well after washing. An acrylic/cotton blend is a great idea! Good luck!

Annabelle,

I am a beginner at crochet. I love this idea but I am having some difficulty. I get the first part and the chain 6 in 15, but how do I repeat back through the same 15? Please help!

Thank you for the beautiful idea.
