Flower Face Scrubby Crochet Pattern
These face scrubbies are crocheted in the round which means you will only need to weave in two ends. Starting with a magic ring/circle, you’ll create a cinched starting point and won’t have a hole in the middle of your face scrubby. Our YouTube channel features a video tutorial with three different methods for creating a magic ring.
The flower face scrubby pattern is made out of three simple rounds, using basic crochet stitches to create the flower effect. As the face scrubbies are fairly straight forward in shape, this pattern is an ideal learning project for anyone new to working in the round. Several different types of stitch are used throughout the project; the puff stitch, chain stitches, double crochet, and slip stitch. The puff stitch is the most advanced stitch used, which is essentially a combination of yarn overs and pulling up loops.
Once you’ve created your very own flower face scrubby (in whatever colour you choose), you can use it as a face-washing scrubby, gently exfoliate your skin, or remove makeup. Each scrubby should only take 15-20 minutes to complete, meaning you can make several in one sitting if required.
As the pattern doesn’t require a specific yarn weight, you can use this project as a convenient stash buster or create delightful gifts for your friends and family.
Tip: If using a face scrubby to remove makeup, use a darker coloured yarn to avoid staining. Lighter colours will begin to look stained after just a couple of uses, even when thoroughly cleaned.
