This is what happens when you stay up until 2:30 in the morning crocheting. I have had this idea in my head for weeks (someone on a yahoo group I participate in asked for a pattern for a bath poof) and I sat down yesterday to design this:Sunshine Bath Poof
With crochet hook (I used an "I") and crochet cotton (I used Peaches 'N' Cream in Daisy Ombre)
For the first portion, you will be working in the back loops to give you the front loops to work into later.
Join with slip stitch in first ch to form a ring
8 sc in ring, do not join
Row 1: 2 sc in back loop of each st (16 sc)
Row 2: *2 sc in back loop of first st, 1 sc in back loop of second st* repeat from * to * to end (24 sc)
Row 3: 2 sc in back loop of each st (48 sc)
Do not fasten off
Next round: 2 dc in back loop of all sts around.
Next: sl st down to front loops, 2 dc in all front loops (you will work in a spiral to the center of the piece
When you get to the center:
Ch 3, turn
1 dc in same st, then 2 dc in each st to outside ring. When you are on the outside ring, randomly slip stitch to the opposite side in order for the ruffles to form a secure ball.
When you reach the last st, slip st at the base of the first row of dc's.
Do not fasten off.
For ring to hang poof:
Ch 30, Slip stitch to the base of the first dc row, ch1, turn and slip stitch in each of the 30 chains.
Fasten off and tie in ends.

if you have any problems or questions with this pattern.
Enjoy! Would make a great gift!
BTW: My "model" is my daughter Samantha (6 months). She is so beautiful, but I'm biased! LOL *I think this poof is hers, as she loves to play with it already!*
