This crochet back scrubber works up quick and easy. It’s a luxurious scrubber to replace anything store-bought. It features a nice ribbed texture to give you a gentle massage as you wash your back.
The only negative thing about this scrubber is that it takes forever to dry! So make sure to hang it in a well-vented area to dry after each use.
The Stitch Pattern
This back scrubber is crocheted in one piece, beginning with the first loop, then the body is worked in rows and finally the scrubber is finished with the second loop.
The stitch pattern is the single crochet stitch, worked in the back loops to give you a nice ribbed texture.
You will need to know how to increase by working two stitches in one, and also how to make the single crochet two together.
This scrubber measures approximately 5.5 inches wide by 12 inches long, not counting the loops. It is given in one size, but if you need to increase the length, you can do so by doing more repeats of the even rows.
I used two strands or a worsted weight cotton, bernat handicrafter cotton. It’s a soft and natural yarn, making it great for cleansing the skin.
You can crochet this in two colors or a solid color to match your bathroom decor. Personally, I prefer the solid color because it makes the textures more visible, but using two colors is a great way to use up leftovers.
Another thing that you could do is use one strand of the cotton and another of Red Heart Scrubby. Generally I don’t recommend blending different yarns, but for this scrubber, I think it would work beautifully.
