This bath pouf is crocheted up in two sizes, one for children and the other for adults. Technically they both have the same measurements across, but the larger is slightly fuller than the small. This is because the large has the same amount of rounds, but with more increases made in round 2, which simply compacts the stitches for a nice full scrubbie.
The pattern is very easy, and if you can follow a pattern, make chains and single crochets, then you can crochet this!
It makes for a great gift for yourself, or anyone in your circle of friends and family.
