How to crochet a bath puff

Comments

Thanks for sharing this pattern! What brand of yarn did you use for yours?

Oooo! Thanks for the great pattern. My friend will love it! Happy Holidays to you and yours.

The Blanket Hog says

Have you tested how they hold up in water with soap? Do they have to be washed after every use or can you use them multiple times without them mildewing like a regular bath thing? I would love to make some of these for Christmas presents for family.

Just rinse them well after shower and hang over shower head. Throw them in the washer once in awhile. 🙂

How many ounces of yarn per pouf?

I’;ve made these beofre too but the pattern is a take off from the Crochet Crowd’s Bee Happy Flower.

See the tutorials here:

My long stretchy back scrubber (made of nylon net) is falling apart, and I can’t find a replacement. I think I’ll make 4-5 of these and string them together with some good elastic, make a “grab” loop on each end, and voila — a replacement back scrubber! Thanks!

susan west says

I have just made one of theseand they work up so quick , thanks for sharing 😀

Candice Veazey says

This would be great with bamboo yarn since its antibacterial.

Love your pattern. I made one with antibacterial coton (with some seacell) and a larger hook, but i was disapointed in the shower. It was just a hard ball of coton. How can i improve it? It didn’t foam at all….

I don’t think I’d use cotton for this. Maybe nylon or something that would hold it’s shape when wet and be kinda scratchy.

Does this dry from day to day to avoid mildew? Using cotton yarn, I am wondering and yet would love to make them as I have used store bought for years.

Susan Martin says

Oh i luv this pattern. Ibe made 2 using 2 dif patterns. Gets kind of tight etgo tedious. Im starting tjis one now. Thx. P.S. Any info u could forward wuth regards to trying to sell my projects eould be greatly appreciated. Out of work 6 mths now with no luck to date finding anything. Again thanks so much

Susan Martin says

I found 2 other patterns myself. Did complete but found it quite tedious putting 9 dc in same stitch. I made one blending the 2 together. Ended up alteting even more and doing 5 dc in each stitch. 2 rows after first round. But still think too much yarn. Luv this one. Everyone in my house has one. Lol Thx so much for the pattern. 😉

Jane Feagans-King says

I have made this with Caron Spa and you get two enthusiastic “thumbs up” from our home. I used a j hook and I could only work 35 stitches into the first ring, so mine are a bit less full, but not much. They lather up great, they wring out easily and they don’t get mildewed like cotton does. Just pop in the wash once a week and you’re good to go. Will be making several for

Kerri Mubaarak says

Making this now with shui bui linen! 35 in the ring. Double crocheted the second round. Tripled the 3rd and quatripled the fourth. The chain link yarn is expensive to make but yields the perfect pouf!

Hi! Love this pattern!! I am curious to know if mildew is a problem… On the other hand, if you make a bunch of them, you could treat them like washcloths, laundering as frequently.

Vera Richards says

I just finished a pouf from handicrafter cotton and I think I’m going to love it…..already use washcloths from handicrafter because I love the way they feel…like they are really cleaning the skin without digging…and believe I will love the feel of this for the rest of me….not worried about mildew as long as it is rinsed and hung up to dry

Susan Little says

Thank you, I made several of the yarn eaters last year and with this new pattern I plan to make more. Great gifts with fancy soap!

I am just getting into crocheting. All the names of the yarns I have never heard of. Where do you get your yarn? Do you order online/
Thank you
connie

Annabella DiGangi says

Just followed this pattern. Took 2 hours. Not bad for first time. Used Peaches n Cream 100% cotton. Wish I could upload a photo here to show how it turned out. Very easy to do. And the best part – the boyfriend who will use nothing but bath scrunchies went ape and loves it!! I will be keeping this pattern and will be making more. Thank you so much for sharing.

I am working up my first one and it’s turning out great. I think I will make one with the nice soap idea for christmas gifts this year. Not to mention it will save me money not having to purchase the ones at the store once a month or so and I am ALL ABOUT saving money!

Elaine – yay for a fellow member of the frugal club.

thanks for posting this pattern…its very cute, but I have to say, it took me much longer than 1 hour. I used Lily Sugar & Cream cotton yarn, and I think it took me about 3 hours to complete, and I am an experienced, fast crocheter…

Hi, Kathy. Glad you liked it! Sorry it took longer than expected 🙂

i just made one when it is used do you just let it dry or throw it in the dryer

Throwing in the dryer would be your best bet 🙂

Patricia Gallardo says

I think I would love to make a bunch of these & maybe hot glue some crafty rhinestones on them & put them in a bit jar for bathroom decoration instead or even without anything on them just in a jar made of different colors. Just an idea I thought. Anyways I can’t wait to make these soon.

Kaaren Huffaker says

Great pattern. It took me about 1 ½ hours., but it was fun. I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton. I wish I could attach a picture for you.

I use an I hook.

I love this pattern! I will, however, use tulle next time I make one. I was a little disappointed with the one I made using regular acrylic yarn. It did NOT foam the soap like I’m used to. It’s a wonderful pattern, just be mindful about what yarn/product you use, in order to get the desired end result 🙂

Thanks for sharing this pattern!

Crystal Wall says

Making this now. Its taken me a little longer than an hr but I am brand new to crochet. This was a super easy pattern for a beginner. I used a smaller hook (I didnt see yours until too late, I used an F, its cute this way too!), and Peaches & Cream 100%Cotton Yarn. I wish I could attatch a picture for you. Thanks for a great site.

Clarisa Skinner says

Just made this up. Instead of using cotton yarn, I used an acrylic worsted weight yarn. Great pattern. It worked wonderfully.

Absolutely loved it! Very easy and turned out great!

i think i’ll try this in acrylic yarn, it will be lighter when wet, not stretch as much as cotton, and dry more quickly.

I am desperately in need of a spa day and thought that it would be really fabulous to create a spa set so that I can pamper myself. This week, I have a fabulous, quick, and easy Puffy Bath Pouf! This is the first pattern in my Spa Day Series. I will have 3 more patterns plus an awesome sugar scrub, and I will show you how to make a wonderful spa basket. I hope you enjoy this pattern! Happy Crocheting!

Hello and welcome to the beginning of a new Crochet Along! For this CAL, we will be creating a luxury spa style gift set. This will be perfect for gifting at Christmas, or a great seller for the upcoming Christmas craft fair season.

FREE CROCHET SHOWER PUFF PATTERN – CAL WEEK 1

Over the next 4 weeks, I will release one new FREE pattern on this blog to make up the gift set. Here is the line up:

  • Week 1 – Shower Puff
  • Week 2 – Headband
  • Week 3 – Washcloth
  • Week 4 – Soap Scrub

Optional PDF Download

You also have the choice to purchase the complete PDF download. This includes all the free-to-view patterns, plus an exclusive addition for the set; Face Scrubbies! These circular face pads fit over the fingers and have 2 surface textures, exfoliating and cleansing.

Not only that, with the download you’ll also get a printable set of gift tags! These customised gift tags add the perfect finishing touch to your luxury spa gift set. Again, these tags are exclusive to the PDF download, available to purchase now!

WHAT KIND OF YARN DO I NEED?

I have used Drops Cotton Light yarn which is a 50/50 cotton and polyester mix DK weight yarn. This is great for these bathroom cleansing items as it is soft, strong, durable and quicker drying due to the polyester content. You can use 100% cotton yarn, this is usually the favourite for bathroom items.

You could also use Aran or Worsted weight yarn instead, this will make the items thicker, but the general size should remain the same as we will be using a 5mm hook.

I have used 2 contrasting neutral colours for my luxury spa set, a main colour (Dark Grey) and an accent colour (Light Beige). I recommend using 2 contrasting colours for the full effect of the designs, but you can use any colour/s you like.

You will need an approximate total of 200g/460yds for these FREE CAL projects, or a little more for the complete Bathroom Spa Gift Set PDF pack. I will give more details along with each CAL pattern release.

Now, let’s get started!

Free Shower Puff Crochet Pattern – Crochet For Beginners

Shower Puff Free Crochet Pattern

You will only need to know these few basic US stitches to follow this pattern and make your own crochet shower puff:
(ch) chain, (sl st) slip stitch, (sc) single crochet, and (dc) double crochet.

You will need approximately 75g/173yds of cotton or cotton mix yarn in DK or Worsted weight, 70g/161yds of your main colour and 5g/12yds of your accent colour. You will also need a 5mm hook, yarn needle and scissors.

The finished shower puff will measure approximately 4″ in diameter.

These shower puffs take loads of stitches to make the puffy texture, far too many to count at the end of the rounds. But don’t worry, it is very forgiving if you accidentally add or miss a stitch here or there. When adding the puff section, just try to count 4 stitches in each stitch as you go.

Round 1.

Start with using your accent colour,

Step 1. ch5, sl st into the first ch to form a circle,
Step 2. ch50 and slip stitch around the opposite side of the previous circle,

Shower Puff Crochet Pattern Round 1 Step 1&2

Step 3. ch1, sl st along the back bumps of the previous 50 ch sts (this forms the strong hanging rope),

Shower Puff Crochet Pattern Round 1 Step 3

Step 4. sc x8 around the circle towards the other side of the hanging rope, skip the base of the rope and continue sc x8 around the circle on the other side of the rope, sl st into the first sc st of this step to join. Fasten off accent colour and weave in ends. (You will have made a ring of 16 sc sts to form the centre starting point, plus a hanging rope)

Round 2.

Join your main colour to any sc st. ch3 (counts as your first dc), 3dc again in the same st as join, 4dc in each remaining sc st, sl st into the top of beginning ch3 to join. Turn. (64 dc sts)

Round 3.

Shower Puff Crochet Pattern Round 3

Round 4.

Working in the other direction again. ch3 (counts as your first dc), 3dc again in the same st as join below, 4dc in each remaining st, sl st into the top of beginning ch3 to join. Fasten off and weave in ends. (1024 dc sts)

This Crochet Bath Pouf would be such a great addition to your home spa set! Made with Red Heart Scrubby, it dries more quickly than the cotton ones!

I love the idea of a DIY crochet bath pouf! And there are certainly several crochet patterns out there. Many of the crochet bath pouf patterns, though, use cotton yarn which can be quite heavy when wet. They also take a long time to dry often spoiling them before they wear out!

In order to address these problems, I designed this crochet bath pouf using the Red Heart Scrubby yarn which is a 100% polyester fibre. This means that it won’t retain the water as a cotton one would making it less heavy and quicker to dry!

This post contains affiliate links. This means that when you make a purchase through one of the links I will make a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thank you for supporting Rich Textures Crochet!

Red Heart Scrubby Yarn:

I also love the feel of the scrubby yarn. It has more the texture and feel of a store bought pouf or loofah. I’ve used this yarn in several washcloth patterns including the Thermal Stitch Crochet Scrubby and the One Tough Scrubby – A free Crochet Pattern

For this pattern you are going to require one ball of the Red Heart Scrubby yarn. When I worked my pouf I used almost the entire ball! You will also need a 6mm crochet hook.

Construction:

To make the pouf I started with a magic ring however you may also start by chaining six and then joining with a slip stitch in the first stitch to make your ring. From that ring you will continue by working the hanger of your crochet pouf before working into the ring itself.

Of course, there will be a video tutorial down below to help you on your way!

The pattern will be written out in full below, however if you would like to add it to your library or purchase an ad free PDF, you can do so from either my Etsy or Ravelry Shop linked below:

Until next time, happy crocheting!

Skill Level: Intermediate
Gauge: N/A
Finished Size: 12 inch circumference

Hook: Size J/10 (6.0 mm)

Stitches and Abbreviations:

Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet

Rpt – Repeat

Sc – Single Crochet

Sl st – Slip stitch

Pattern Notes:

  • Pattern is written in American English terms.
  • Ch 1 at beginning of round does not count as sc.
  • Ch 3 at beginning counts as a dc.
  • Do not turn unless stated otherwise.
  • Weave in ends as needed.

Free Pattern:

Make a magic ring or ch 6 and join with a sl st in the first st.

From the magic ring, continue by making the hanger: Ch 25, join with a sl st in the first chain closest to the magic ring.

Rnd 1: Into the magic ring, sc 25; join with a sl st in the first st, do not turn. (25 sc)

Rnd 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), 3 dc in the first st, 4 dc in each st around; Join with a sl st in the first st, do not turn. (100 dc)

Rnd 3: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), 3 dc in the first st, 4 dc in each st around; Join with a sl st in the first st, do not turn. (400 dc)

This is an easy and free bath pouf crochet pattern. It’s not scratchy like a nylon pouf, but still suds up well when used with liquid body wash. It has a loop to hang dry after use. It comes out a nice size- approximately 5 inches in diameter.

The best thing about this pattern is you make the hanging loop before you make the body of the puff. A lot of the other patterns have you make the loop separately after the body of the puff is made, and it’s really hard to get into the middle of the puff to attach it. And though it looks like it might be hard to make the loop first and work around it, it’s really not at all.

The puff can be machine washed with like colors and tumbled dry low.

Supplies:

(SCROLL TO PRINT PATTERN – Crochet Bath Scrubbie)

  • cotton yarn
  • crochet hook – size H
  • scissors
  • crochet needle

Since your crochet piece will be getting wet, it’s best to use cotton yarn, as this yarn washes well. I love the brand Sugar n’ Cream. It’s not as smooth as normal yarn to crochet on the hook, but it’s very durable and is great for a bath scrub. NOTE: this yarn color will bleed on first use. Before you scrub with it, rinse it well with soap and water. Then it’s ready for bath time and can be tossed in the wash with your dirty rags.

Instructions for Crochet Bath Scrubbie:

1. Chain stitch 4.

2. Slip stitch back through the first chain stitch to create a circle.

3. Chain stitch 2. This will act as your first double crochet in this round.

4. Double crochet 11 more stitches in the center of the circle you made in step 2. 12 dc total.

5. Slip stitch through the top of the first chain of 3 to form the first circle round.

6. Chain stitch 2. This will act as your first double crochet (dc) in this round.

7. Double crochet into the same stitch just to the left of where you chained, so there are now 2 in the same space.

8. Continue to double crochet 2 stitches into each of the remaining holes from the previous round. 24 dc total.

9. Slip stitch through the top of the first chain of 2 to form the second circle round.

(You could stop here and tie off your yarn if you wanted to make a face scrubbie. This would be the perfect size for a reusable face scrubbie!)

10. Chain stitch 2. This will act as your first double crochet (dc) in this round.

11. Double crochet into the same stitch just to the left of where you chained, so there are now 2 in the same space.

12. Double crochet 1 in the next hole.

13. Double crochet 2 into the next hole.

14. Repeat this pattern around the circle with 1 dc and 2 dc all around. 36 dc total.

15. Slip stitch through the top of the first chain of 2 to form the third circle round.

(You can stop here and skip to step 18 if you don’t want to add a hook. It works as a scrubbie just like this.)

16. Chain stitch 8.

17. Slip stitch back through that first chain stitch of 8 to create a circle hook.

18. Tie off your yarn. Use your yarn needle to thread and hide all the tails. Trim any excess yarn.

Now your scrubbies are ready for the bath. Make some in all colors!

Hook your Crochet Bath Scrubbies onto the tub faucet so they’re ready to go. Or you can hook them onto your homemade bubble bath bottle!

It’s ready for some scrubbin’! Have fun with your Crochet Bath Scrubbies for tub time!

My crafty creations corner

I expect any of you who use a shower puff find that they pass from being like the one on the left to being like the one on the right all too quickly. And eventually fall apart all together. My attempts at re-folding and tying them only last for a short time.

So I was intrigued when browsing through ‘crochet’ posts in the reader to come across someone who had made a crochet one. She also gave a link to the place where she had found the pattern.

So I decided I had to try.

(In respose to my comment, I was told that the puffs do take a while to dry and so -)

A brief digression here regarding my attempts at making dishcloths.

My first attempt at a dishcloth had been with what was sold as ‘dishcloth cotton’ and was ostensibly double knitting weight but which was actually closer to aran. As I thought this was a bit stiff and took a long time to dry, I tried again, this time with something called ‘craft cotton’ that was much more what I would have called double knitting weight. These two dishcloths had been made using one of the textures from the book we used for the CAL, because I thought it’s slightly raised surface would be good for cleaning.

My son-in-law had asked for a similar dishcloth but in making one for him I decided to try a looser structure in the hope that it would dry more quickly. (Again with the craft cotton.) Finally I found some intriguing, though of course more expensive, cotton yarn that was so pretty that I decided to use it for a dishcloth.

I am still using all three of my dishcloths but my favourite is the last one and though it is now white through being soaked in bleach from time to time, it is the quickest to dry and the most comfortable to use.

Because of the above, and because I had quite a bit, I decided to try to make a shower (or bath) puff using what was left of the craft cotton.

In the end I did not follow the pattern exactly.

The first row involved working 40 trs (US dcs) into a 4ch circle. There must be a way of doing this but it was not obvious to me. (It wasn’t a problem of getting stitches into the hole but of having reached the end of the circle after about 20.) So, to save time, I decided to start again and try an alternative method of getting to 40 by working 10dcs (US scs) into the circle, then 2dcs into each stitch on the next two rounds.

Having already strayed from the pattern, I decided (remembering my dishcloths) that instead of continuous lots of 3trs (US dcs) into each stitch, for the next three rows, I would alternate trebles and chains. working (tr,ch,tr,ch) into the first stitch (or gap on the following two rows) and then (tr, ch) into the next.

This gave a very solid ball, so I decided to try again using my pretty cotton.

I worked out that I probably didn’t have enough of this to make a whole one, so I worked one up based on a starting ring of only 30 stitches.

Here you can see the two shower puffs compared to a shop one. I decided that although it was smaller, the pretty one felt the most comfortable in my average female (glove size 7) hands and so this would be the one that I would try using, maybe reusing the craft cotton for a floorcloth.

(I have to admit that when new the shop puff was about as firm as the cotton one.)

I also decided to try making one based on a starting point of 30 stitches out of some bamboo yarn I had. This was softer than the craft cotton and less jarring on my wrists as I made the stitches. Like with the chains between the trebles, I felt that a looser structure and so more air would mean quicker drying and maybe even more bubbles.

Unfortunately when I came to use the small pretty one I found that it produced very little bubbles.

I have two sorts of shower gel at present one of which I don’t like because it produces so much foam that the tray is full of it at the end of the shower. Using the cotton puff, the gel I like didn’t foam at all and the with the other one the foam was barely visible. I suppose the puff was no better than a flannel.

I am now not sure whether to try using one of the others or to do a rethink. Would one made exactly like the original pattern be any better I wonder?

I expect many of you know that I can get a bit obsessive about things and like to find the perfect way so there may be more about shower puffs when I have experimented a bit.

I have several others projects to work on but I was pleased to find a new crochet project to play around with.
