They look like crazy 70s psychedlic earrings, but they're really makeup remover pads -- an alternative to cotton balls. I've seen these in various places around the internet, so I worked up a couple myself. I used a 4.25mm (6) hook and worsted-weight yarn (Peaches 'n' Cream Ombre in Fiesta, I think), so they're nice and thick. They're a simple circle, starting with 8 sc and then crocheting 4 more rounds (for a total of 5), adding 8 sc each round.

I've made the flower type in white peaches and cream.  They are really nice to use, soft on the face and absorbant.

they're pretty soft, and they'll just get softer with washing.

Wow. Cute and eco friendly! How do you wash them? By hand? Also, since I couldn't crochet my way out of a paper bag, does anyone know of a good website for crocheting noobs such as myself?

I just toss them in the wash with my other cotton stuff, since they're made from washable cotton. I rinse them well after use. They get softer each time they're washed, too.
