My best friends daughter will be going off to college in the fall. I know that the Debbie and Bill will be busy with all the big stuff so I thought I would be thoughtful and provide some things they would probably easily forget about. I plan to make a "bath" basket and include this item with other things I have found to crochet. I know everyone will love it.

I knew I was going to make this the minute I saw it, so I went straight to Red Heart for the downloadable pattern. If youd also like to make this, the pattern is simply called Back Scrubber (LW4509) and is located here http//www.redheart.com/free-patterns/back-scrubber I cant recommend this scrubber enough! I worked mine in a combination of cotton and scrubby yarn, and use it every time a take a shower! I just close my eyes and pretend Im in a spa!

This is not only a great beginner project but also a project for us old time crocheters to whip up in a hurry. I am going to make one for every male on my Christmas list. It's always so hard to figure out a gift and ties and socks get old after awhile. Thank you!

Always on the hunt for a practical gift to make and give to all my family members. This project will be a welcome addition to that gift basket during the winter holidays, right along with the homemade soap that I plan to make. I can not wait to get started. I have to make five, six if I include myself.

I love it when I find patterns that are easy and practical. This crocheted back scrubber is just that. Note it is not 248 rows, the pattern should read rows 2-48. Once you get past the "typo" the pattern works up fast and the result is a great, versatile back scrubber that will become a staple in your shower.

Typo, 248 rows ?????? Should be Rows 2 -- 48 working on the pattern.
