A while back I have received from Red Heart Yarns a few skeins of Scrubby Cotton yarn to try out.
At first, this yarn seemed tricky to work with, because of its fuzzy texture, but I have realised that it’s much easier to work around the stitches or into spaces rather that into the top of the stitches. That’s why my first pattern choice was the crochet moss stitch, where the stitches are worked into the chain 1 spaces of previous row.

If you haven’t worked with the scrubby yarn before, I recommend watching Marly Bird’s Video Tutorial on YouTube: How To Crochet with Scrubby Yarn.
