Sunburst Crochet Face Scrubbie (B) & (A)

The Inspiration

I am working on a big project at the moment (click here for a sneak peek on Instagram). Over the weekend I was finishing off the back panel and decided I needed a break and I wanted to work up something quick. We are trying hard to be a zero-waste family and so I have ditched my one-use cotton pads for these cute and fun cotton Sunburst Crochet Face Scrubbies. There are so many lovely scrubbie patterns out there but I wanted something bright and a little bit different for the bathroom. I think this Sunburst design is so eye catching and those colours are just amazing. I also made one scrubbie really loose so that it was large enough to fit under my soap – so no more soggy soap residue on the bottom of my soap-dish!

The Yarn

It is important that scrubbies are soft and gentle enough for your skin. I chose to make these Sunburst Crochet Face Scrubbies in GarnStudio Drops – Muskat because this yarn is 100% mercerised Egyptian cotton. Drops Muskat is so soft it is like silk, making it the perfect choice for a face scrubbie. As this yarn is 100% cotton it is also super absorbent meaning you can also use it to apply facial toner. I also used Drops Muskat when creating my very popular Chic Crochet Boho Belt, check it out by clicking here.

Stitches & Terminology

sl st slip stitch

ch chain

sc single crochet

hdc half double crochet

dc double crochet

dc2tog double crochet two together

INC increase (make two stitches in the same stitch)

dc2tog: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through the first 2 loops. Yarn over and insert hook into the same stitch and pull up another loop. Yarn over and pull through the first 2 loops. You will now have 3 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

1sc (or hdc) then INC: If the pattern reads “1sc, INC” this means you make one single crochet (or hdc) into the first stitch and then 2 single crochets (or hdcs) in the next stitch.

If the pattern reads: “2sc, INC” this means you make one single crochet (or hdc) into the first 2 stitches and then 2 single crochets (or hdcs) in the next stitch.

Pattern Tips

Colour changes

  • To change colour you can finish the round with a slip stitch and then use the new colour to make the first chains of the new round.

Weaving in the ends

  • When you change colour hold the two ends flat alongside the stitches you will crochet into for the new round. When you make the new stitches, you can crochet around these ends. This means you will not need to weave in these ends when you are finished.

Filling the gap in the round

  • The scrubbies are worked in the round and not in a spiral. To avoid creating a gap in the rounds the first chains of a round do notcount as a stitch.

Stitch markers

  • Use a stitch marker in the first and last stitch of each round. This will help you to keep track of your stitches and prevent you from adding or decreasing stitches unintentionally.

Tension

  • Keep your stitches tight to prevent gaps.

  • You can also keep the stitches loose to create a larger scrubbie to place in a soap dish.
