I know, I know. There are already around a million face scrubby patterns out there in the crochet-iverse, but who ever said no to a million and one?
Crochet face scrubbies are lovely quick gifts you can make when you don’t have a lot of time. You know, when there’s an unexpected late addition to your Christmas gathering, or you’ve forgotten your Mother-in-law’s birthday… not that I’ve experienced this first-hand of course!
Now that I’ve sold you on why you’d want to make one, here’s the pattern.
- Small quantities of cotton DK yarn (this is the perfect yarn-scrap project)
- Size 5 crochet hook (most of the pattern is made with this hook)
- Size 4 crochet hook (only use when stated)
- Yarn needle
Round 1: Make 9 SCs in a magic circle. SL ST to join circle. (9 SCs)
Round 2: CH 1, make 2SCs in each ST. SL ST to join. (18 SCs)
Round 3: CH 2, *HDC, DC, CH 3 and SL ST into first CH (picot), DC in same ST, HDC* 6 times. SL ST to join. (12 HDCs, 12 DCs)
Round 4: CH 1, BPSC around each stitch. SL ST to join. (24 BPSCs)
Round 5: CH1, SC, 2SC * SC in next 3 STs, 2SC * 5 times. 2SC, SL ST to join. (30 SCs)
Round 6: CH 1, BPSC around each ST. SL ST to join and fasten off. (30 BPSC)
Round 7: Locate the 2 HDCs in round 3. Make a standing SC in the SC above the right HDC (#1), * make a long SC (spike stitch) in between the 2 HDCs in round 3 (#2), SC in the next 2 STs (without skipping any STs). Insert your hook into the picot from round 3, skip a ST, SC in next 2 STs * repeat 6 times. on the last repeat, SC in the last remaining ST and SL ST to join. (6 along SCs, 30 SCs)
Round 8: CH 1, *SC in next 5 STs, 2SC in 6th ST* repeat 6 times. SL ST to join. (42 SCs)
Loop: Using your size 4 hook, CH 20, SL ST in same ST as CH. Finish off and weave in ends.
Optional surface crochet: Using your size 4 hook, insert your hook through STs in round 2 (#1) and pull up a loop. Insert your hook in the next ST and pull up a second loop. Pull the second loop through the first loop. Repeat around. SL ST to finish off. (18 surface STs)
Now your face scrubby is finished! I hope you like it and it leaves you with a glowing complexion.
I look forward to seeing them!
