Bathmat

I came across this pattern for a bathmat.  It is called Pretty Puff Bathmat by Stoneface Creations. You can get it for free here. She admits she isn’t a pattern writer. She wrote this pattern out of finding a picture but no pattern to make it.  The pattern is easy to follow but there is one mistake.  Rows 16-52 says to repeat rows 12-14.  You actually need to repeat rows 12-15 to get the pattern to work out and to match where it states you should be at Row 52.  She used Ice yarns. I had never heard of this yarn before I went on the cruise but I decided to use Bernat Blanket yarn since I love the yarn.  I used an L hook instead of a J to accommodate for the difference in thickness of the yarn.  I did not try to match gauge. I made the pattern as written.  My rug turned out to be 38″ x 45 (instead of 24″ x 36″). It is very soft and squishy. Jet approves as you can see.  It used 3.5 skeins of the big ball yarn.  This isn’t a pattern I would make to sell as the puff stitches get hard for my hand with the thick yarn. The yarn is more expensive too so it would be hard to come out ahead when factoring in the time it took.
