Welcome to the Spa Basket Crochet Along!
This fabulous CAL features 12 spa patterns from 12 amazing designers (including myself!) All of the patterns in this CAL can be used separately or combined into a delightful spa basket, which makes a perfect gift! This CAL event will run from 8/30/16 through 12/7/16 and best of all, there is also an amazing giveaway filled with some wonderful prizes. For more information about the giveaway, please see the bottom of this post. Here is my contribution to the CAL, a quick and easy scrubby pattern called the Nubby Scrubby! These Nubby Scrubbies work up quickly and are made with 100% cotton yarn. I also have a great Vanilla Sugar body scrub recipe that takes just a few ingredients to make. I hope you enjoy the pattern and recipe! Happy Crocheting!
