I cooked up my own bath puff pattern to replace all those stinky nylon ones!  They are great for giving as gifts and keeping in your guest bathroom.  It's pretty simple to make - don't let it scare you!

Here's the pattern:

Oh, and here's the washcloth pattern:  http://handmadebyannabelle.blogspot.com/2010/04/crochet-pattern-not-your-grandmas.html

I keep trying out these crocheted balls, but they never lather up correctly when used. How do these work out in the shower?

I just started crocheting but I'm catching on pretty quick and I would love to try these, they don't seem too hard either, as long as I am reading your directions properly! lol I have a habit of not reading them right the first time around!  Undecided

Hi !!

I had the same problem with the bath puffs not lathering up well and decided to try the cotton/acrylic blend.  It works well, and the 100% cotton works well, but you really need to keep the 100% cotton ones small -- otherwise they are too heavy.

Hmm... I used both the 100% and the cotton/acrylic blends, worsted weight, only three rows and didn't work out... wonder what I'm doing wrong... are you using a smaller weight yarn with these? Maybe I should try with some sock yarn or something?

Oh- and I do really much like the colors you used! It reminds me of sherbert ^_^ Yummy!

Greetings. What brand of yarn makes cotton/acrylic blend?  I went to the store and could not locate the combo.  Did you use a strand each of cotton and acrylic.  Do tell!! Thanks in advance!!  Wink

Hi -

To answer your question, there is a Lion Brand 50% acrylic/50% cotton -- I purchased mine at Michaels.  Debra Norville may have one too.

100% cotton does work well, but keep the puff small or it just becomes a big large lump in the bathtub.

These are adorable!  I'm going to make some for myself & my mother-in-law.  She will love them.  Thanks much for sharing the pattern on your blog.  These will be sooo much nicer than the scratchy net ones.

Thank you!  Wink I have a jumbo skein of cotton and don't know what to do with it. Christmas presents will start early this year, and I am determined to save money this year, instead of adding to debt! You're an angel- thanks.  Cheesy
