This handy back scrubber is crocheted with kitchen cotton yarn and a size G hook. It is a quick to make project.

Red Heart Eco-Cotton Blend was used to create this practical bath mitt. You'll also need a size G hook. The pattern needs to be downloaded to your computer.

Worsted weight cotton yarn and a size G and I hook are needed to crochet the bath puff. The designer says this is her favorite puff for bathing. You will need to crochet it loosely.

This pretty puff is designed with worsted weight cotton yarn. The pattern has step-by-step photos included. It is rated as a Beginner pattern, so anyone should be able to crochet it. The strings have hearts at the ends and is a pretty project for yourself or a gift.

This bath set includes a rug, a tub pad and a scrubby. Red Heart Baby Clouds yarn was used in all 3 projects. The rug and tub mat are made of squares with pretty flower centers.

The pattern uses a size J hook and cotton yarn. Sorry, but no photo is included. The finished towel has a picot edging. Also included are links to more towel patterns.

A free crochet pattern is offered with easy to follow instructions for a bathroom set that includes a toilet paper cover, a bowl for soaps and washcloths, and a face cloth, This pattern is available in both a UK format and a US format.

The face scrubbie is crocheted with size 3 crochet cotton thread and a size E hook. It is crocheted with a 5 treble crochet cluster. I don't recommend this one for the beginner unless you are used to working on doilies or other more complicated designs.

This is a vintage 1953 pattern. You'll need size 10 bedspread weight cotton and a size 8 steel hook.

This pretty toilet tissue cover has a flower on the top. It is created with worsted weight yarn.

Aunt Lydia's Rug yarn was used for this project. The rug is worked in a solid pattern with a footprint worked in the design. It is a rectangular rug with fringe. You'll need a size H hook to complete the project.

This is a really pretty facecloth that is crocheted with a flower design. The pretty washcloth is crocheted with worsted weight cotton yarn and a size H crochet hook.

You'll need 3 T-shirts cut into 1/4" wide strips to crochet this half circle bath rug. You'll also need a size G hook. This is a nice rug for the front of the tub. You could also use one in front of the kitchen sink.

This is an archived pattern. It may take a minute for the "Wayback Machine" to bring you to the page, but it is well worth the wait. The Ripple Bath Set will really brighten up any bathroom. The rug is in a starburst design with a matching seat cover and tissue cover.

Aunt Lydia's Rug Yarn was used to crochet the projects and a size J hook. You could use any heavy cotton yarn or double worsted weight cotton.


The creator of this loofah claims the yarn you use is the most important part of the project. She used a blend of cotton and nylon. The reasoning is that the cotton is super absorbent and the nylon prevents mildew. This is probably good advice for crocheting soap covers too. She also says that you should use sports weight yarn because it dries faster. Read more of her advice. A size I hook is used for the pattern.

This is a vintage pattern from The American Thread Company from 1952. The rug is crocheted with Aunt Lydia's Heavy Rug Yarn and a size H hook. Any heavy cotton yarn could be used.

You'll need a small amount of worsted weight cotton yarn and a size G crochet hook. One side of the soap sock has a mesh design and the other is made up of ruffled edges. This project will fit a regular sized bath soap or you can use it to enclose the ends of leftover soap.

The Soapsaver Bath Mitt was designed with Simply Soft yarn and a size G hook. You should be able to use any light weight worsted weight yarn. She rated this pattern for a Medium level crocheter. This would make a nice gift or use it yourself in the tub.

This is an archived pattern from Crochet Memories. If you go to her site, you can sign-up for her free newsletter and receive a free pattern whenever a new newsletter comes out.

This soap holder is especially pretty with a single pineapple. She used Luster Sheen yarn and a size F crochet hook.

This vintage set includes a bathroom rug with a matching toilet seat cover pattern. A cat applique for towels is also included. You'll need to click on the link to go to the pattern in PDF fromat.

This fringed rug is a rectangle that measures 24" x 36" when finished. It is created with Coat and Clark's Speed-Cro-Sheen cotton thread and a size G hook. Worsted weight yarn or heavier yarn might work well because the gauge is 3 sc to 1". Since you start with a chain that measures 36" long and just work across from there, I don't think it matters what yarn weight you use. This is an extra easy pattern.

5 different washcloths are featured. Just click on the links about the photos. Some of these are really pretty too.

Thanks for this information! I keep "intending" to do this and already have "orders" from my family who want rugs, lol, so if I do get around to doing it, my house will have to stand in line.
