"24 Days to Christmas" Countdown - Crochet Bath Puff

This year I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas countdown, showing off things I have made as gifts and ornaments either this year or in previous years. If you are wanting to make handmade gifts for your loved ones this year, then keep watching because I hope to put an awesome Christmas related tutorial or recipe up every day until Christmas Eve. Today is day 17!

Today I would like to share a cute bath puff I made to go with some nice shower gel to make a gift for someone.

To make one yourself, you will need a 7mm crochet hook and double knit yarn.

Bath Puff

1. make a magic ring, ch3 and work 9dcs in ring, join with sl st in top of ch3 (10)
2. ch3, turn, dc in st at base of ch3, 2dcs in each st around, join with sl st in top of ch3 (20)
3. ch3, turn, 2dcs in st at base of ch3, 3dcs in each st around, join with sl st in top of ch3, bind off (60)

Repeat rounds 1-3 five more times. Weave in outside ends but not magic ring ends.

1. ch80, 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 the 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 :)

I hope you all enjoyed this pattern. You can find more Christmas Countdown posts here.
