WHAT IS IT?
A great, simple knitting pattern with instructions for making a pouffe or scrubbie, a handy mitt and a simple washcloth all using our brilliant Eternity yarn.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
Rather than buying plastic pouffes or scrubbies that eventually fall to pieces and get thrown away, why not make your own? Using a yarn like Eternity for these items which won’t rot, won’t absorb water and won’t fade or stain means you can make your own unique range of items to use in your bathroom that will last much longer than the cheap shop bought versions.
The textured stitches and unusual yarn mean that you can create accessories as smooth or coarse as you wish. The items work perfectly with shower gels, soap and facial washes to create lots of lather and less waste. The patterns are highly adaptable so you can adjust the size and texture and make them for yourself or as a quirky gift.
The yarn is available in a wide range of colours so you can co-ordinate with your bathroom – or just choose a bright version for a pop of colour. Most of the colours on the website that show a black thread (and mixed colours) running through are somewhat coarser, so even suitable for your pots and pans – especially the Forest shade.
WHY SHOULD I BUY IT?
Designed exclusively for our Eternity Polypropylene yarn by Nikki King at NikkiCr0chet who has played around with lots of shapes and sizes and sold completed spa sets at craft fairs, so they are tried and tested. And as you'll be downloading you'll get the pattern immediately.
