Pretty Puff Bathmat
I found this pretty Bathmat on Pinterest - However, I could never find a link to a pattern so I kind of made up my own. I'm not an overly experienced Crocheter and am terrible at following patterns, nevermind making them up - so please bear with me. This Bathmat looks a little complicated - especially when it comes to the instructions. But when you get going on it and get the hang of it, it's pretty simple. You can also use all single crochet between the rows if you prefer.


I used:

Ice Park Cotton - 12 skeins at 125 yards per skein - But I did use 2 strands together so you could cut this in half if using a thicker yarn.

J- Hook

Single Crochet, HDC Half Double Crochet and Puff Stitch

Finished Measurement - approximately 24" X 36"
