Creating your own reusable beauty products is a smart way to go green. Instead of throwing away face scrubbie pads every day, make your own version out of washable cotton that can be used again and again. Not an experienced crocheter? Don't worry, the steps are simple and you can follow the links in the tutorial for more specific information about each stitch. Here's how to get started:
- Cotton yarn
- Size 5 crochet hook
- Yarn needle
Tie a slip knot around the crochet hook.
Chain stitch 4 stitches.
Make a loop by joining the ends of the chain together with a slip knot.
Single crochet 8 stitches into the loop.
Next, chain 2 stitches, then double crochet 2 stitches into each single crochet for 16 stitches total. Join the last double crochet stitch with the chain using a slip knot.
Chain 1, then single crochet 1 stitch into each double crochet stitch. Join together with a slip knot.
Chain 2, then double crochet 2 stitches into each single crochet stitch in the row below it. Join together with a slip knot.
Cut a tail from the yarn that is a few inches long. Pull the tail through the loop on the crochet hook, then pull it tight to create a knot.
Feed the tail ends of the yarn through 1 of the yarn needles. Weave the ends of the yarn through the crochet, then trim away any excess with scissors. Repeat these steps to make as many face scrubbies as you would like.
