This Crochet Bath Pouf would be such a great addition to your home spa set! Made with Red Heart Scrubby, it dries more quickly than the cotton ones!
I love the idea of a DIY crochet bath pouf! And there are certainly several crochet patterns out there. Many of the crochet bath pouf patterns, though, use cotton yarn which can be quite heavy when wet. They also take a long time to dry often spoiling them before they wear out!
In order to address these problems, I designed this crochet bath pouf using the Red Heart Scrubby yarn which is a 100% polyester fibre. This means that it won’t retain the water as a cotton one would making it less heavy and quicker to dry!

Red Heart Scrubby Yarn:
I also love the feel of the scrubby yarn. It has more the texture and feel of a store bought pouf or loofah. I’ve used this yarn in several washcloth patterns including the Thermal Stitch Crochet Scrubby and the One Tough Scrubby – A free Crochet Pattern
To make the pouf I started with a magic ring however you may also start by chaining six and then joining with a slip stitch in the first stitch to make your ring. From that ring you will continue by working the hanger of your crochet pouf before working into the ring itself.
Of course, there will be a video tutorial down below to help you on your way!
The pattern will be written out in full below, however if you would like to add it to your library or purchase an ad free PDF, you can do so from either my Etsy or Ravelry Shop linked below:
