Is it the material or the pattern?
I wanted to knit a bath scrunchy for my 1 year old because my scrunchy is too big. I ended up knitting a little fingers hat instead which I like. My only problem is that it doesn't foam up the soap as well as the scrunchy does. Is it because I knitted with cotton or is it because of the shape? Or both?

Thanks

I think it's just the cotton... I wouldn't imagine it being particuarly foamy... hmm... :thinking:

there was a Bath poof at knitty a while back that used 100% nylon, which I want to say is what the commercial poofs are made out of... maybe something like that would work better?

Hi Ellen,

Thanks for your encouraging words.

I live in the centre of Israel where life just goes on as normal. So, I'm making the most of it while I can.

I'm going into town this morning, though my husband says that it's risky. But I must get some groceries and things for my daughter. I can't live like a prisoner.

Thanks guys. I thought the cotton was probably not suitable.
