Using this in the bath or shower instead of the polyester or nylon scrubbie that you’ll find in most stores will do two things.
Firstly you’ll have a natural fibre washing you with your soap or shower gel. You’ll notice the difference and while it will still be exfoliating your skin, with the ridges created by the garter stitch rows, there will not be any coarse scratches that you might find caused by joins or flaws in plastic alternatives.
Secondly you’ll not be adding to the plastic micro-fibres that live in our natural environment. We’re releasing these pollutants whenever we heat and agitate synthetic fibre whilst it’s in water. By using natural fibres that break down much more quickly and naturally, we’re reducing our impact on the environment.
Included is enough yarn to knit up two scrubbies, so you can use them on rotation and wash them regularly with your towels.
Join the knit-along by choosing this knitting kit before 31st May 2023 (limited number available, so may run out before then), or purchase the digital pattern option to join us too.
Be a part of the second knit-along this year and pick up your needles alongside us with full step-by-step tutorials and video knit and natters.

You’ll be given access to the private knit-along forum and digital pattern when the doors open on 18th March 2023. This will provide access to the digital pattern and videos for your knit.
What to expect inside the Shower Scrubbie knit-along:
You’ll be given access to over three weeks of conversation inside the Knit-Along community space on 2nd June 2023. This forum includes comment topics and weekly knitting prompts to guide and support your knitting.
You’ll also be given access to video tutorials for the Scrubbie, including repair tutorials for any mishaps you may encounter.
Hannah is inside the forum daily, to answer your questions, give support with knitty mishaps, and cheer you on as you knit through the shower scrubbies.
(one-to-one access to Hannah at this level isn’t currently available in any other form, so if you’ve been hoping to get some extra help and encouragement from Hannah with your knitting, now’s your chance!)
Photos can be posted, along with your comments and questions, so we can share in everyone’s knitting experience. You can be as sociable as you choose; as an introvert myself I love communicating in small bites, but you can log-in as many times as you like each day and let us know how your knitting is going.
- Knit-Along starts, Monday 4th June
- Knit-Along ends, Sunday 24th June
The digital pattern will be available inside the Knit-Along space, along with a printable version with less colour.

Whether you pick the Shower Scrubbie kit or pattern, you’ll be welcomed into the knit-along.
