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?

3.5” diameter on the widest point
- 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 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.
- 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
No gauge needed
