Knitted Bath Pouf


Call it a ‘bath srubber’, a ‘pouf’, or whatever you like. But today I am going to teach you how to make one. To make this you need to know how to cast on, do the knit stitch, and although not completely necessary it is recommended you know how to purl so that you can knit in stockinette stitch (*purl one row, knit one row*).
1. knit a rectangle in stockinette stitch (*purl one row, knit one row*, regular knit stitch can be used, without purling every second row) that is about 9 inches/23 centimeters wide, by 14 inches/36 centimeters long.
2. take the two long ends, and using a tapestry needle sew them together, so that you have formed a long tube.
3. Separately, you need to knit for your scrubber, a piece to tie it up with. Knit this piece so it’s just 3 stitches wide, and knit it to be about 9 inches/23 centimeters long. Once you have made this, lay it with you knitted rectangular tube piece scrunched up in the middle of it, as seen in the picture below.
4. Tie a knot with your skinny piece as in the picture, using a standard overhand knot, as in the picture, and double knot it to make it secure.
5. From here all you need to do is stitch together your two loose ends on your skinny piece, or tie them together, so that you can actually hang up your bath pouf.
6. And now it is done! This is a great gift idea that can be paired with other homemade bath products.

Let me know if you have any questions!
