I decided to dip into my stash of worsted weight cotton yarn last March and design a back scrubber for the shower. I used a size 5 needle and cast on 30 stitches using a provisional cast-on. I knitted for 30″ in garter stitch and then started the decreases with K2 tog across the end and added a 4 stitch I-cord to make the loop. Then I went back to the beginning and removed the provisional cast-on, picked up the stitches and repeated the decreases and I-cord attachment.
I made another one for myself several inches shorter with smaller loops. After washing it’s 5.5″ wide and 28″ long including the loops. It stretches several inches when saturated with water in the shower and can easily be machine laundered. I usually just take it out of the washer and hang it up to dry over the shower head but it can go in the dryer if you prefer.
I still have a lot of cotton yarn in my stash and I’m thinking of knitting more of these for gifts. I’d like to do some knitted sets that include a face cloth, hand towel and the back scrubber.
