Crochet Pattern- Scrubbie II

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

Scrubbie II
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.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. I have made it and am sharing it with ladies from church and we are using them for mission outreach to give away. Those of us who think nothing of buying something to do dishes with or to use as a wash cloth don't realize what a gift something like this can be. I am also using this pattern idea to make plarn scrubbies. I have friends who are missionaries and love to have practical gifts to give away. They are in Haiti. So, again, thank you for sharing and I hope that you feel good about helping us to help others. Paying it forward is what it is all about. Blessings to you----

    1. Thank you so much. This is just one of the best things ever. Many blessing to you as well, and thank you for being one of mine.

  2. I like the looks of this pattern but trying to print with all the other stuff you have on these pages is not worth the effort. My first try to print ended up with only parts of the pattern description. Very disappointed.
