Foot or Dish scrubber. You choose!
I made this pattern up after doing a trade. Web design services for a crocheted bath poof! I tossed in a couple of nylon scrubbers for fun, and here is the pattern:
100% nylon plastic canvas yarn. I used Needloft that I got from Walmart. It's about a worsted weight, and you can get around three scrubbers from one pack.
J crochet hook
Tapestry needle to weave in ends
Gauge is not really important. Just crochet until you are satisfied with the size of your scrubber.
1. Chain 4, join with slip stitch to the first chain to form a loop.
2. 5 half double crochet into the loop. Join with slip stitch to first half double crochet. Chain 1, turn.
3. 2 Half double crochet into each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first hdc in round, chain 1, turn. (10 hdc)
4. *Half double crochet into first stitch, 2 half double crochet into next stitch (this is a half double crochet increase)* all the way around. Join with slip stitch, chain 1, turn. (15 hdc)
5. Repeat step 4, adding one stitch between the increases, in each round. You will be adding 5 stitches each round.
6. When you have reached the desired size (usually 4 rounds is enough for a small scrubber), you will join with a slip stitch, chain 6, join with slip stitch to beginning chain, fasten off, weave in ends.
You now have a flat, 100% nylon scrubber that will be perfect in the shower to slough off dead skin, or to scrub the nasties off your crusty dishes. Machine wash and dry.
