This weekend I whipped up a little project that I’m completely in love with and I want to share the pattern with you. It’s simple, practical and organic so what’s not to love?!
This back scrub can be knitted up really quickly and is a great way to stay creative throughout a Netflix marathon as you don’t really need to look or memorise any stitch pattern. Give yourself some time to get used to the texture of the yarn – it’s firm and doesn’t have much give but once you get into in there will be no stopping you.
5.5mm circular knitting needles
Large eye darning needle
Cast on 2 stitches, leaving a long tail (for sewing later) and knit an i-cord for 6-7 inches
Once your i-cord is the desired length, cast on a further 10 stitches (total 12 stitches) and knit each row until you reach a length of around 20 inches.
Cast off all but 2 of the stitches. Knit another i-cord to match the length of the first. Cast off remaining two stitches and cut to leave a long tail.
Attach the two ends of the i-cord to create handles and that’s it! You have a nice new scrubby companion to share your shower time with!
