Arien Face Scubbie

As Mother’s Day is approaching fast, I wanted to come up with a cute little gift idea for you, my lovley crafty friends! This beautiful face scrubbie pattern is working up quickly and reminds me of Spring, flowers, sunshine and the colors which I have missed a lot during winter.

These little beauties are made of 100 % cotton DK yarn and can be used and washed over and over again and they are a great alternative to regular cotton wool pads as they are eco-friendly! Amazing, isn’t it?

Difficulty:

Advanced beginner/Intermediate

Size:

3.5” diameter on the widest point

Materials needed:

  • 3.5 mm (E) size Hook
  • approx. 14 yards/12.8 meters (5 grams) of 100% Cotton DK yarn to make 1 scrubbie (I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK different colours)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors

Stitches used and Abbreviations:

MR = magic ring

CH = chain

ST/STS= stitch/ stitches

SLST = slip stitch

SC = single crochet

HDC = half double crochet

DC = double crochet

BPSC = back post single crochet

Puff ST = puff stitch

*-* =repeat pattern between these symbols

Special Stitches:

Puff Stitch:

Yarn over hook, insert hook in indicated stitch/space, pull up a long loop through that stitch/space (3 loops on hook) Yarn over hook again and insert hook into the same stitch/space, pull up a loop (same height as the previous one) 3 more times. You should have 9 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 9 loops on your hook, chain 1 to close the puff stitch.

Back Post Single Crochet:

Insert your hook from the back, from right to left, around the post of given stitch, yarn over and finish your single crochet as usual.

Additional notes:

  • US terms used throughout
  • Each round starts with a Chain 1 which is not counted as a stitch.
  • When you make a puff stitch, it creates 2 loops on its top. I will refer to these loops as first loop and second loop. The first loop is always the one on the right and the second one is on the left
  • The pattern is written as you would use 1 color, however, you can use as many colors as you want

Gauge:

No gauge needed
