Frankenstein Scrubby

Frankenstein scrubby

September is here, so I feel safe posting Halloween designs. I know some people get annoyed at stores who put their holiday merchandise out too early, but as crafters, we need it early! Am I right? There are so many things to make and never enough time. I usually start making Christmas gifts in January. In fact, I buy gift wrap and boxes in the after-Christmas sales. That way I can wrap the presents as I finish them and not have to worry about wrapping them all in December. Anyway, one of my favorite Halloween icons is Frankenstein, so today’s free pattern is a scrubby. This little guy only took me only an hour to crochet. Because they were out of stock of the Red Heart Scrubby Yarn in the colors I needed, I went to Hobby Lobby and got Yarn Bee Scrub-ology. This yarn is a bit softer than the RH and more suitable (in my opinion) to scrubbies for the skin rather than for the kitchen. I’m looking forward to coming up with a few more scrubby designs in the future.

Scrubby measures 3.5″ x 3″.
