Little Nubbin's Scrubber

This little scrubber can be used for dishes if made with acrylic yarn or in the bathtub if made with cotton. Pair it with Grandma's Washcloth and give as a set for a thoughtful homemade gift.
As with all of Silver Lake Crochet Co. patterns this is for beginners. To make the Little Nubbin's Scrubber you will need to know how to make a Puff Stitch.

This is a Silver Lake Crochet Co. original pattern.

Yarn: Peaches & Creme Stripes "Sandstone"
Hook: H
Gauge: 4 Sc = 1 inch, 2 Row=1 inch

4 1/2 X 4 3/4 inches

Sl St: Slip stitch
Ch: Chain stitch
Sc: Single Crochet stitch
Ps: Puff Stitch
Beg: Beginning

Make 2
Ch 16
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook. 1 Sc in each Ch, turn (15 stitches)
Row 2: Ch 1, 1 Ps, 3 Sc, 1 Ps, 3 Sc, 1 Ps, 3 Sc, 1 Ps, 1 Sc, turn (15 stitches)
Row 3: Ch 1, 1 Sc in each sitch (15 stitches)
Row 4: Ch 1, 2 Sc, 1 Ps, 3 Sc, 1 Ps, 3 Sc, 1 Ps, 3 Sc, turn (15 stitches)
Row 5: Ch 1, 1 Sc in each stitch (15 stitches)
Rows 6-13: Repeat Rows 2-5 two times.
Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Assembling your scrubber: Hold each side of the scrubbie together (a safety pin is helpful here) with "puffs" on the outside. Starting in the corner use a Sc stitch to sew both pieces together (use 3 Sc in the corners to avoid a rounded appearance and Sl to Beg Sc to finish). Fasten off. Weave in ends.
