Below will be two patterns for crocheted face scrubbies. The patterns are very similar, and it makes them perfect to be given away in sets together. I used a cotton yarn in this pattern, which you will always want to use for patterns meant to get wet. Each scrubbie took about 10 minutes to make, making these a perfect project when you just want to quickly and casually crochet.
Supplies and abbreviations
- Cotton yarn, I used green and red for Christmas themed ones!
- Size H crochet hook
- Darning needle for weaving in ends
HDC: Half double crochet
BPHDC: Back post half double crochet
Slst: Slip stitch
Do not join any of these rounds, mark with a stitch marker.
Row 1: 6 HDC in the second ch from hook.
Row 2: 2 BPHDC per stitch around (12)
Row 3: 2 BPHDC per stitch around (24)
Row 4: 1 BPHDC in first stitch, *2 BPHDC in next stitch, 1 BPHDC in next stitch* Repeat * until end of row. (35)
Join to the first stitch of the last row with a slst. Tie off.
The only difference in this pattern is you will join your stitches in the end of each round.
Row 1: 2 HDC in each stitch around. Join to first HDC with slst.
Row 2: Ch 1, 2 BPHDC in each stitch around. Join to beginning HDC with slst. (12)
Row 3: Ch 1, 2 BPHDC in each stitch around. Join to beginning HDC with slst. (24)
Row 4: Ch 1, 1 BPHDC in the first stitch *2 BPHDC in next stitch, 1 BPHDC in next stitch* Repeat * until end of the round. Join to beginning HDC with slst. (36)
I make these in sets of four, and I choose two colors that go well together. When I do this I make one of each pattern in each color. Sets of four seem to be the perfect size for this pattern, and they make a fantastic gift!
I really hope you guys like this pattern and happy stitching!
