If you like a nice scrub (or know someone who does) and are curious about exotic plant-based yarns, here is a fun and quick project with which to go exploring. Instructions included for two bath mitt styles in two sizes (S/L) and two back scrubber styles. Mitts are knit in the round and back scrubbers are knit flat. Either piece is a great beginner project or last-minute gift, tucked into a pretty bag with a soft cotton washcloth or some enticing body care products. 
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall change in size or yardage required.
