Extra Luscious Ruffle Bath Puff
I’ve never been one for washcloths, having always preferred the luxurious suds created by a bath puff. With one skein of yarn and simple stitches you can crochet yourself what will hopefully become the best bath puff you’ve ever owned. Make sure your stitches are loose to allow for maximum sudsing power.
Please be advised that this bath puff took nearly my entire skein of yarn (I was left with 17 grams). If your gauge is off you may find you need a second skein.
Skill Level: Easy
1 skein Knit Picks Dishie [100% cotton; 100 grams; 190 yards; worsted weight], Color “conch”
If you wish to make a yarn substitution you’ll want to look for another 100% cotton in a worsted weight. 180 to 200 yards of your yarn will be needed to crochet a bath puff of similar size to the one in the photos.
