This easy crochet back scrubber pattern is worked up in two strands of yarn to give you a nice thick scrubber. It’s a nice alternative to store-bought scrubbers and makes for a nice gift idea for yourself or anyone who has trouble reaching their back.
Another bonus of this scrubber is that it works up super quick as well! And it’s the perfect pattern to use up as many leftovers that you need to.
How Do You Make a Back Scrubber?
This scrubber is started at one end with a loop and worked across in rows to the next loop. The only stitches used are the chains, single crochets and single crochet increases and decreases.
I started off with 20 chains, but you can increase that if you need a bigger loop to hold onto. Then I increased in each row until I was at the width that I wanted.
Work the scrubber in an even pattern up to row 35. If you need a longer scrubber, you can easily increase that if you like. Then decrease and work the last loop to complete.
The Size: Mine measures 5.5 inches wide and 12.5 inches long, 21 inches long including the loops. It’s the perfect size for small adults and teens, but as already mentioned, you can easily increase that if needed.
The Yarn. This pattern can be worked up in pretty much any soft yarn that you like to use the bath. I chose a worsted weight cotton yarn, called Bernat Handicrafter Cotton because it is strong and durable. It holds up to a lot of scrubbing, and in this case the back and forth tugging that a back scrubber goes through.
I worked this with two strands using a 9 mm hook. I used two different colors, but a solid color would look great too!
