How To Crochet A Spa Back Scrubby (Summer Spa Getaway CAL)


It's spa time!  Welcome back to the 2021 Fiber Flux Summer Crochet Along...yippee! We are working an amazing series of projects this time...the Summer Spa Getaway CAL!  Each week we'll make a different spa item (everything is listed below on the schedule) and at the end, you'll have a beautiful collection of spa themed crochet items that you can use for self-care or lovely gifts too!  This series is easy and fun...meant to be a relaxing, easy going summer project, all part of our spa theme!

Today we're working on this fun back scrubby, easy to make and super handy!  Use the simple to make handles to get to hard to reach spots.  Handles can also be used to hang your scrubby to dry too!

Spa Back Scrubby

Below is the schedule of all of the projects we'll be making during the CAL!  

Click below to watch a full video tutorial on how to make this project:


Materials:
Finished Sizing:
  • 15 inches long (without handles)
  • 19 inches long (with handles)
Note: Scrubby can be easily customized if you need it to be longer or shorter.


Instructions:

Note: I worked 4 rows of each color to create the stripes.

Ch 19 (multiple of 6+1)

Row 1: In the 4th ch from the hook, work 2 dc. *Skip two ch then work a sc in the next ch. skip 2 ch and in the next ch, work 4 dc. There will be 3 ch left on the row. Skip the next two ch, and in the very last ch, work a sc.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work 2 dc in the sc from the previous row. *Work a sc in the center space of the fan from the previous row (area in between the posts right in the center). Work 4 dc in the sc in between the next two fans. Work a sc in the turning chain space to finish the row.

Repeat row 2 until the rectangle is about 15 inches long. If you need your scrubby to be longer, simply work more repeats of row 2.

Without fastening off, chain 26. Work a slip stitch at the opposite corner of the edge into the turning chain space to create the handle shape. To thicken and reinforce the handle a bit, work a single crochet into the same space where you worked the slip stitch, turn, then work a single crochet into each chain across. Finish by working a slip stitch into the turning chain space at the end. Fasten off.

To work the other handle at the opposite end, tie same color yarn into the upper right corner of the rectangle. Chain 26, then work a slip stitch at the opposite corner of the edge into the turning chain space to create the handle shape. Work a single crochet into the same space where you worked the slip stitch, turn, then work a single crochet into each chain across. Finish by working a slip stitch into the turning chain space at the end. Fasten off. Weave in any ends that remain and then its ready to use!
