Free Knitting Pattern - Back Scrubber

I’ve been wanting to knit myself a back scrubber for a long time now {about 2 years, to be exact}. I just kept putting it off. Number one, it’s knitting something for MYSELF, which I don’t do a lot. Number two, I couldn’t find a pattern that suited me. I’m a simple person.

Do I really need ‘handles’ for my back scrubber. I just don’t want to take the extra time to knit handles. Plus don’t they stretch out… a lot? I don’t want to put extra time into something that isn’t going to hold up to wear-and-tear. Let’s face it. It’s a ‘scrubber’ and it’s going to be brutalized. So, I want it to last.

The other thing I want in a scrubber is texture. I decided to go with the classic seed stitch. I love the texture and look! Doesn’t it look lovely?

  • K – knit
