Easy Face Scrubbie
"This easy face scrubbie is another free crochet pattern for the SPA lover. It really is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Three rounds and you are done! These face scrubbies are part of a larger SPA Crochet Set.
While the SPA set looks beautiful in many colors, I ended up making a red and white set that is perfect for Christmas, Valentines, and Sweetest Day. This can be made with or without a strap.
My daughter thought she would prefer a strap. That simple addition is shown too. These are really quick crochet projects. If you need a last minute gift, this one is it."
Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook
Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)
Crochet Gauge(16-20 stitches to 4 inches)
Finished SizeApproximately 3 inches around.
- Less than a skein of 4-ply cotton yarn. I do recommend a cotton yarn for easy use and quick drying. Approximately 60 yards of yarn.
Size H Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
Begin with a magic circle. CH 1. This chain 1 does not count as a stitch.
Round 1: Complete 12 DC in the magic circle. Join with a SL ST into the top loops of the first DC.
Round 2: CH 1 (this does not count as anything). 1 SC in same ST. 2 SC in each DC. Complete SC in the first ST. Join with a SL ST.
Round 3: CH 1 (this does not count as anything). 1 DC in same ST. [2 DC in next ST, 1 DC in next ST]. Repeat between [ ] all the way around. Complete DC in the first ST. Join with SL ST.
Finishing: Gently pull the center of the face scrubbie closed a bit to close up the center hole a bit smaller. Using a yarn needle, weave in the yarn ends. Cut off the excess yarn. You are already complete with your face scrubbie.
Directions for the Handle
After you have completed the last row and completed the SL ST, rather than weaving in the yarn, continue on for the handle.
Complete 9-12 chains depending on how tight you want the handle for the face scrubbie on your hand. Once the chains are complete, slip stitch into the top two loops of a stitch across from where you started the handle. This way the handle is in the middle of the scrubbie.
Now it is time to weave in the ends and cut off the excess yarn.
