It isn’t always practical to pick up a hook as soon as you wake up. Having something cozy to see first thing in the morning is a good substitute. For the past few years, I’ve had a crochet bathmat. It makes me smile in the morning when I get ready for the day.

My old bathmat was crocheted with thick fabric strips and it took forever to dry. This summer, I tried Bernat Maker Home Dec, a squishy, cotton blend yarn, for the first time, and I decided it was time for a bathmat that would dry a bit faster (both after the shower and after being washed).
