This pattern has been updated on August 8, 2013. No real mistakes were found; however, I did find a few typos and added a note at the beginning instead of putting the information in each row.
This back scrubber works up quite fast and is made in one piece. You start off with the first loop, and without fastening off you move on to work the rows of the scrubber, then finishing with the second loop. You can’t tell in the image, but the scrubber has two loops to hold onto – one at each end.
Also, this pattern is worked with two strands of yarn held together to make it go even faster. Use one or two colors that go together.
Material: 2 colors, or 2 strands of Bernat Handicrafter 100% Cotton Yarn
Hook Size: N-9.00MM
Gauge: 5 rows= 2.5″, 10sts= 4″
Finished size: 5.5 inches wide and 12 inches long, 21 inches long with the loops.
Note: All rows are worked into the back loops only. This not only creates a nice stretchy fabric, but it also helps to increase the effectiveness of the scrubber.
