I was thinking about this for a washcloth, but was afraid the scrubby yarn would be too much. Now I'm thinking about possibly using cotton yarn for a washcloth for some young boys. Do you think that would work? I've never knit with the scrubby yarn before.

These are so cute! I think I will make them as gifts!

Too cute! This puppy's face is so sweet. Washing dishes may actually be fun if you use this adorable scrubby.
