One Hour Bath Pouf


Not only is this One Hour Bath Pouf a quick and easy crochet pattern to complete, but it's actually fun to work up, as well. They use up a bit more yarn than you might expect, but the end result is totally worth it. Combine one or two of these with some nice shower gel and fancy body lotion for a nice homemade gift set. Anyone would love to get such a nice and luxurious present.

I love, love, love bath poufs and go through those cheap ones from the Dollar store like crazy. The only place I really need that netting kind is for my gym bag since it dries so quickly. At home I prefer something a bit more luxurious, and this pouf is just wonderful. Ive worked up about a dozen so far as they make wonderful gifts, too

So happy to find this pattern for the pouf that is washable. Every time I wash those poufs that are made with netting, they seem to fall apart and I have to buy more. They can be quite expensive unless you buy the ones from the Dollar Tree, but they dont hold up as nicely. This is very similar to the smart baby toy that I made recently.

his is the perfect pattern to use up all of the scrap peaches n cream yarn I have or any cotton yarn. It is also a quick project. This would be great to make a few to go with a gift basket that includes different bath products. And they don't use much yarn so you could still make some for yourself.

. I like to use the store purchased bath poufs. It is one of my guilty pleasures when I do get to pop into the tub and just relax. I like that I can make my own and I know I would feel comfortable popping this in the wash now and again.

OK, this is seriously one of the cutest patterns I've seen lately. I have made various types and sizes of kitchen scrubbies for myself and for gifts, and it is time to work on the bathroom! Just reading through it the pattern seems easy with quick results. I can see making these in several colors to use as baby toys as well as bath poufs. My cat would also like one...

I had wanted to try making my own bath pouf in the past. I think they look special and have a nice professionally made look to them. However, I had no idea that they were the kind of thing that did not quite stand up to the daily basic rigors of every day life. I am amazed at reading the comments below. I would have thought a cotton yarn would be the perfect match for a bath pouf. Hmm, I wonder if those cotton yarns with a blend of cotton and acrylic would make it work out a little bit better and dry out faster..and not hold so much water?

Lounging in the bath is one of my simple pleasures and I enjoy it fully when I am afforded the opportunity. I am forever on the hunt for a bargain to pamper myself and I think this is one indulgence I must have. Thank you for the advice in types of cotton yarn selecting, will make a difference in the pattern.

Anyone try to make this using scrubby yarn?

I made this using the sugar cream cotton yarn while it was really cute it was too heavy, didn't suds didn't dry was too bulky to use.

I made this in both worsted weight and cotton (sugar & cream). Both were too heavy to use and never dried out.

I actually made one of these in Handicrafter's cotton. Although it was very soft, it was so heavy when wet! Heavy and awkward to use!

Easy to make. I used cotton yarn and absorbed so much water it was heavy. Making one in thinner cotton. Will report how this one is as soon as I'm finished.

This pouf took longer than the 1 hour as stated. I used an H hook, instead of I hook because it was too big. I used Lily Sugar & Cream cotton yarn.

LIke the others, I found this absorbed the water and shower gel so was not very useful. I used Red Heart acrylic yarn that was leftover from another project. It was easy to make and interesting to see it develop. I also would appreciate knowing if a different yarn would work better. I found it to be quite bulky and would be interested in trying to make it with only single crochet instead of the double crochet to make it more compact.

The One Hour Bath Pouf could also be made into a Christmas ball ornament. Just a few Christmas colors and embellishments (sequins, beads, and/or string of pearls) and you have a cool ornament.

Might this pattern work up in net strips, thus solving bulk/ weight/ wringing out problems?

I have made a few of these and find that they are too heavy and do not suds up very well. I did not like using it because of the bulk. I prefer the flat washcloths. I used cotton yarn. Maybe the acrylic yarn suds better?

I have seen this pattern before. I have try to make them using cotton yarn. They are very heavy and don't wring out very good. What kind did you use?
