I was asked for a scrubbie by a member of my family who will go unnamed because he's an adult man who doesn't want the world knowing he wanted a soft cotton bath pouf.
He also didn't care about colors because nobody is going to know he has a soft cotton scrubbie except for his family, so I used yarn I got at a garage sale. I got a big bunch of cotton yarns at this sale for 5 dollars and I'm using it on things where color isn't important. (which also explains why the next pattern I'm posting is out of this same yarn)
So.. all that said- gauge isn't important for this project. I used Peaches and Creme Spring Meadows colorway, on a cone for this. You can probably make one with one ball, but buy 2 just in case. My next project is a great yarn burner for bits of cotton yarn.
ch= Chain stitch
sc= single crochet
dc= double crochet
sl st= slip stitch
tr= treble crochet
Size G hook, cotton worsted weight yarn, American terminology
Ch 40, sl st to join (makes hanging loop)
ch 6- sl st at join from ch 40
Round 1: ch 6 (counts as first sc and ch 5), sc in ring,*ch 5, sc in ring*, repeat ** 8 more times, ch 2, treble in first chain of round to join (12 loops)
Now it starts increasing by a lot.
Round 2: ch 6 (counts as first sc and ch 5), sc in same loop, ch 5, sc in same loop,*ch 5, sc in next loop, ch 5, sc in same loop, ch 5, sc in same loop*, repeat ** around, when you get to the last ch 5 to join the round, ch 2, tr in first chain of round to join.
Round 3-4: Repeat round 2, on the last ch 5 space of the last round, ch 5, sl st to join.
You can add a 5th round if you want it even bigger and fluffier
Break off and weave in ends.
