Sweet DIY: Crocheted Bath Puffs

By Megan Sweet, AddSomeStitches ♥♥♥

Use a cotton yarn of your choice – not bulky! I use Bernat Handicrafter, or Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn: 4 ply, worsted weight yarn. Both of these work great! If you choose Sugar n’ Cream, buy 3 balls of the 2oz sizes. (I bought 2 balls and found myself 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

  1. Select a size G hook (4.25mm)
  2. Ch 4, form a ring by joining the first ch with a sl st
  3. 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
  4. 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.)
  5. Rnd 2: ch 2, 3 dc in each st around, join with sl st
  6. Rnd 3: ch 2, 3 dc in each st around, join with sl st
  7. Rnd 4: ch 2, 3 dc in each st around, join with sl st
  8. Tie off, and weave in ends… then enjoy your new bath puff!

Have fun!

  4. These look like they’d last longer than the loofas I keep buying. I like the idea of being able to make my own in my favorite colors! Cool DIY!!
