Flower Face Scrubbies – Free Crochet Pattern and Video

Crochet simple flower face scrubbies so you can go green in the cutest way. This free crochet pattern is fast, beginner-friendly, and comes with a full video tutorial. Each one uses less than 10 yards of cotton yarn!

Now that we can increase in the round and crochet a circle, it’s time for another free pattern! These flower face scrubbies are adorable, handy, and SO FAST to make. The video tutorial is under 20 minutes long (including all my talking) and I make a whole scrubby – start to finish!

I’ve been using these little flower face scrubbies for astringent after I wash my face, but they’re perfect for removing make-up, applying toner, or anything you’d normally use a cotton ball for. And since each one uses less than 10 yards of cotton yarn, they make excellent scrapbusters! I’ve already made six, but more are coming FOR SURE. 

Usually we don’t have new objectives for Newbie Series patterns, but today we’ll actually learn a new stitch! The flower petals are created using a variation of the shell stitch, which I’ve included since it’s easy and similar to increasing.

So after today’s lesson, crocheters will be able to:

  • crochet the shell stitch

You’ll also have a chance to practice:

The Tools

Cotton yarn is THE BEST yarn for bath projects like these flower face scrubbies, and my favorite is Dishie from WeCrochet. It’s soft, washable, and you don’t have to worry about any icky-ness growing on it when it’s wet. I use my scrubbies to apply toner, then throw them into a lingerie bag so they’re all together when I do laundry.

Since each flower face scrubby uses only 9 yards of yarn, you can make 24 out of one $2.99 ball of Dishie! Don’t you love great value?! Or if you have small bits leftover from your fringed mug rugs or wall hangings, these are excellent scrapbusters!

I wanted a tighter weave so my makeup remover and toner don’t leak through, so I paired my Dishie yarn with an H 5.0 mm crochet hook.
