As part of my personal push to go green, I whipped up some little cotton face scrubbies to replace the cotton balls I use for toner and makeup remover.
This is a really quick project that doesn’t use much yarn, so it’s a great way to do some stash busting (which is exactly what I did with some of the extra yarn I had from the Bobble Heart Potholder).
If you can do the puff stitch, you’re good to go! If not, I’ve included a quick photo tutorial to help you out (check it out below!).
Before you begin, round up your supplies or hit up Amazon! I had a pile of cotton yarn leftover from random projects, so I just used that.
Worsted weight cotton yarn (I used Sugar’n Cream from my stash)
H, I, or J crochet hook (I used a J hook in this tutorial and an H (5 mm) hook in the video)
Tapestry needle, to weave in ends
Puff Stitch Tutorial:
Yarn over, and put hook under (top left), yarn over again, and pull through (top right). Repeat this process 4 more times, until there are 11 loops on your hook (bottom left). Yarn over one final time, and pull through all of the loops (bottom right). Finish off with a chain stitch.
Now that we all know how to puff stitch, let’s move on to the scrubbies!
