This cheerful snowman is oh so cute! But there's one thing that worries me, and that is- all those color changes will leave ends that need to be worked in and hidden. And those ends can come loose, especially in a dish scrubby or body mitt that gets lots of use. Does anyone have tips and pointers on what works best to keep ends tucked into the work? It's been my nememis since day one.

This happy fellow is sure to add a touch of whimsy to washing up time! Great idea about using it for a bath cloth, but I would work it up in regular cotton instead of the scrubby yarn. It would be fun, too, if you doubled the project (without the face on one) and sewed it together for a bath mitt. But I also sort of agree with jobers77. Id feel guilty about scrubbing a pot with this one!

Yes. I have seen the kind of yarn used in this Snowman Scrubby. I can do this but very seasonal stuff. Perfect as gift or for your crochet business if you have one or if you wanna start one.

So adorable I'd almost feel bad using him! I think I might just put a ring on his top and hang it up for a kitchen decoration or use as a pot trivet. But he is so easy to make I could always make extras in case one gets dirty. Cute and functional!
