Do you also like to use it? I can’t even imagine taking a shower without a bath pouf. Recently I also saw them on pinterest in their crochet version. So I also thought, I can get started with this too! It is so nice to use my handmade bath poufs!
After a number of attempts I came up with 1 basic pattern, yes, there were first a number of less good versions. But in the end I had a perfect basic pattern to start with. With this basic pattern I could start crocheting different versions in any type of cotton.

Below I like to share the basic pattern together with the other 4 versions.
Enjoy crocheting them!
