Seeing Kcraft49's scrubbie/loofah made me want to try one for myself. I found some On Line Job-Life 302 yarn, which is a heavy and meshy cotton/polyamide blend. I read that a 70/30 cotton/nylon blend is best because it offers a good balance of holding suds and not turning into a soapy lump, but I think this yarn should work as well. I actually ran out a round shy (which works out to about 1000 double-crochets!) of what the pattern called for but since it's so chunky I think it might be big enough. We'll have to see how it performs, but so far I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out. The pattern I followed is here, but mine didn't wind up with as many ruffles 'cause I ran out of yarn. I also used a K hook instead of an I.

It makes sense that there's a reason to make yarn that way. The lady at the yarn store and I were hunting for a cotton/synth blend, and she found this stuff and noted that its meshy, webby makeup would probably get nice and sudsy. At $15 for 60 yards though, I'd have to be pretty impressed with how a scarf made with it would look to be worth it!
