by Emily Nelson, Hook Me Up! Crochet


A Rose for MotherMoms-to-be could use some pampering. This Springy, cheery bath pouf will be a great gift, don't you think? (Hint: It's a great gift for your mom, too. Mother's Day is fast approaching...)

Materials List

  • Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream (or other worsted weight cotton) in white and coral swirl (or other preferred colours). One ball of each.
  • Size G/6 (4.25mm) hook


Do not join rounds. This pattern is crocheted in a spiral.

US convention used.
sc(s) = single crochet(s)
sl st(s) = slip stitch(es)
st(s) = stitch (es)
tog = together
flo = front loop only
sk = skip

The Pattern

Begin Front

Using pouf base colour, start with a magic ring. Sc 6 into ring.

2sc into next 6 scs.

(2sc into next sc, 1 sc into next sc) 6 times

(2sc into next sc, 1 sc into next 2 scs) 6 times

(2sc into next sc, 1 sc into next 3 scs) 6 times

(2sc into next sc, 1 sc into next 4 scs) 6 times

(2sc into next sc, 1 sc into next 5 scs) 6 times

6Turn pouf so that the back faces you. Join the base colour to the row previously marked.

Row 1: Ch 1. work 7 scs across one side of the hexagon.

Rows 2-19: Ch 1 and turn. Sc across.

Row 20: Cross the strap over the front of the pouf. Sc across, joining strap to the opposite side of the hexagon.

I like to design my own projects, also. I have made hexagon grannies very simalar to the one you describe above. I made three Valintine hearts from mine and placed a rose of my own design on each "grannie". I surrounded the entire thing with lace border which I "designed on the fly".

I followed the directions exactly and carefully. My rode doesn't look loke the photo, seems somehow to be too croweded in the middle. No matter how many rose patterns I've tried this week, just can't get them right. I'm getting discouraged -- may just have to buy a darned pin.

Having issues with this pattern, hoping you can help me....

I've gone up to the "petal base" part. While sl st-ing on the pouf base, the pouf base takes a cone shape... I'm not exactly sure why. I'm using the same yarn you suggested (diff color) and a different hook (that could be the problem)

I'm wondering if you can help me out.

Hmmm...If it's pulling into a cone, maybe it's too tight. You may try jumping up a hook size or two.

Of course, I could be completely wrong, too. :)

Can you explain to me on the Back what it means to sc the next 2 stitches together. I understand how to sc just not together.

I love this pattern! But I skipped the slip stitch spiral and just made single crochets in a spiral instead starting in the middle and then just turning at the end of the last 125th crochet to start making the petals and that worked just fine.

I also would like to add that the rose made with a strap is a very nice napkin ring!

This is an awesome pattern.  I have made several for gifts.  My dad who is battling cancer loves the texture- his skin is so sensitive.  My sister loves hers too-  for that one at the second round for the back I switched to plastic canvas yarn, it makes a great exfoliator.  That way she can flip the handle to be the soft scrubbie or the exfoliator.  Thank you so much for sharing!!!!
