Crochet Bath Set: Free Pattern

I actually did this tutorial as a guest post for Finding My Way in Texas about a month ago. Just in case you didn't see it over there, I thought I would repost it here :)

I love how these turned out. I've already got a few more lined up in different colours and I think they are going to turn out just as cute!


I've been thinking about Christmas presents early this year. I wanted to make so many of my presents last year but, because I left it so late, I hardly gave anything Mammy Made :( I thought this little bath set would be a lovely present, just add a nice bar of soap and some shower gel or bubble bath!

They make up really quickly which is always a bonus. BTW, I should probably add...if you are one of my friends or family, you should probably forget all about this post as you are more than likely going to get one of these sets and you wouldn't want to spoil the surprise now, would you? :P


To make your own set, you will need a 4mm crochet hook and DK yarn. You will also need a wool needle.

Bath Puff

Main:
Round1: make a magic ring, ch3 and work 11dcs in ring, join with sl st in top of ch3 (12)
2. Ch3, turn, dc in st at base of ch3, 2dcs in each st around, join with sl st in top of ch3 (24)
3. Rep round 2 (48)
4. Rep round 2, bind off (96)

Repeat rounds 1-4 six times. Weave in outside ends but not magic ring ends.

Tie:
1. ch100, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and across, bind off, weave in ends.

To make up:
Fold the tie in half and tie a knot to form a loop. I double knotted mine to make sure it was big enough to not fall through my magic rings. Loosen magic rings on each piece of bath puff and push the knot through. Repeat until all six pieces are on the tie. Weave in the magic ring ends, pulling tightly closed around the tie. Push the bath puff pieces down firmly and tie a knot at the top, making sure bath puff pieces are still tightly squashed together. Fluff the bath puff. Done :)

Option1

Soap Bag (Option 1)

Main:
ch22
1. dc in 4th ch from hook and across (20)
2. ch1, turn, sc across, ending with sc in top of ch3 (20)
3-32. rep row 2
33. ch3, turn, sk st at base of ch3, dc to end, fold in half so two dc edges are facing, seam edges with ss, sc across bottom and up other raw edges.
34. ch8, sc at bottom of ch8, sl st in next st, bind off and weave in ends.

Tie:
1. ch75, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and across, bind off and weave in ends. Thread the drawstring through the holes created in the dc rows. Tie off in a bow. I had my bow at the front of the bag because I thought it looked prettier than having it at the side but either would work. 

Soap Bag (Option 2 -  for stripes)


Main:
ch44
1. dc in 4th ch from hook and across (42)
2. join into a round by working a sl st in the top of ch3, ch1, turn, sc in st at base of ch1 and across, join with sl st in 1st sc (42)
3. ch1, turn, sc in st at base of ch1 and across, join with sl st in 1st sc (42)
4-16. rep round 3
17. Bind off, leaving a long tail. Stitch the bottom of the bag shut using the tail then tie off and weave in all ends.
18. To make the hanging loop, ch9, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and across.

Tie:
1. Cut two or three lengths of wool approx 15" long. Hold them all together and tie a knot on both ends to secure them together. Thread the drawstring through the holes created in the dc row. Tie off in a bow. I had my bow at the front of the bag because I thought it looked prettier than having it at the side but either would work.

Enjoy your new bath set and if you do make one from this, or any of my other tutorials, send me a picture! I love seeing all of your work :)
