i made a bath pouf for the make a friend swap (you can see it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225521.msg2485902#msg2485902) and ma rut requested that i write up a tutorial for it, so here it is! i bet this has been done before, but i looked and couldn't find the thread about it, so here is the way that i do it.

yarn: 1 ball sugar n cream or any sort of washcloth cotton
hook: i use an F, because it is my favorite, but anything that gets you a gauge you are comfortable with is fine. you don't want it too loose though.

ch 40
join with sl st to form a ring. this will be the hanging loop.

ch 4, wrap the chain around the base of the hanging loop as best you can and join with a sl st to form a small ring. this doesn't have to be perfect, since it will be in the center anyway.

8 sc in ch 4 ring

for the rest of it, it's just hyperbolic crochet - 2 sc in each st. you can mark the rounds if you want, i guess... but there's no need to. i made mine for 7 rounds - after that i got too bored of it ^_^ - but they aren't as full as i would like. i think next time i make one i will just keep on crocheting until i use up the whole ball of cotton.

i like these so much better than the store bought nylon mesh ones because i can toss them in the washer and not worry about them falling apart! they don't dry out like the nylon ones do, but at least i am washing and reusing instead of just throwing them away and buying a new one.

this is so incredibly perfect! i was just thinking the other day because my nylon one is getting all falling apart on me and i was wondering if i might be able to make one out of yarn! plus i'm trying to use up all my yarn and i've got some of the sugar and cream kicking around so thank you for the tutorial! hopefully mine looks as good as your's!

thank you a bazillion times over!
