Bobble Back Scrubby (free pattern)

Hi all! This pattern is free and I hope you enjoy it! It’s for a back scrubby, perfect for scrubbing away the day’s stress. It’s soft but textured enough to give you a little massage and help exfoliate. Here it is!

This back scrubbie uses the bobble stitch to provide texture to exfoliate and massage. Make one to include in care packages (make sure to include my face scrubbies too!) or as a gift.
