Are you planning to crochet a gift for a baby shower, Christening, or baby birthday? Or are you just looking for a pattern to crochet for yourself and your little one? These crocheted bath scrubs are just P-E-R-F-E-C-T!

The scrub is worked in Crabline Stitch Pattern, while the handle is ribbed. This project takes about an hour or two to finish depending on how fast you crochet. And the best part is, it only requires one skein of Red Heart Yarn!

Before anything else, I'd like to thank my yarn sponsor.

My Ravelry friend Mimi Alelis (a very talented crochet designer as well) sent me some crochet yarn after I got affected by a huge flood. It was so nice of her. The yarn I used here belongs to what she sent.

Skills Required:

  • Working in rows
  • Reverse single crochet or crab stitch
  • Sc around post

Materials:

  • one skein Red Heart Handknitting and Crochet Yarn
  • #6 aluminum hook
  • optional - 1 or 2 stitch markers

Abbreviations:

  • ch - chain
  • sk - skip
  • sc - single crochet
  • rsc - reverse single crochet (special stitch)

@Sonja: I wish I could understand what you're asking. I know nothing about yarns that much, this one was only given to me after I got affected with a HUGE flood (that killed thousands of people).

I'll ask Mimi about it but she's not online because of the bad weather, too.

Please what is the yarn content that you used?

I love this one @MoiraCrochets - I'll have to complete this over the weekend. I've been crocheting flowers lately and one of your 3-D flowers is on my "to do" list. I'm not sure I'll make it in plarn though - we'll see.

Thank you, Mimi. This is the first one I made with your yarn. Thanks a lot!
