I bought some of this great cotton yarn (Creme de la Creme, "popsicle bright") and I love it.  I've been making a zillion of these little scrubbies in different sizes and I want to keep them all for myself.  I love crocheted cotton scrubbies in general and the color makes me happy.







One of the best things about these babies is how super simple and quick they are to make.

Begin with an adjustable ring, sc 6 into ring.  Join with a sl st to form a circle and pull the loop tight.

Ch 3, 2dc in each st around.  Sl st closed.

Ch 2, 2hdc in each st around.  Sl st closed.

Ch 2, 2 hdc in next 22 sts.  1 hdc in next two sts.  Sl st closed.  Tie off. 

Voila!  You now have a super awesome face scrubby.

Pretty colors! Do you actually use these to wash dishes or as a washcloth in the shower?? How well do they hold up compared to normal washcloths?

These are only about 2 1/2" wide, so I designed them to use on my face, but I have bigger ones, round and square, for dishes and full body washcloths.

I love them so much better than standard washcloths.  They seem to wear out much less quickly, and the ridges of all the stitches and stuff really massage nicely.  I use a rectangular one on my feet Cheesy

I really want to make some of the spiral tawashis, but I haven't had time to sit down with the pattern yet.

The yarn is a size 3.  Don't remember which hook I used (I tend to just toss a roll of yarn into my purse with the first hook I see that looks about right and then go  Roll Eyes)

I bought the yarn from a great seller on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/crochetgal

Dya reckon these would be useable as make up applicators/removers?

I don't know about applying makeup with them, but they are good as removers.  I like to use the small edges for fine areas like under the eyes.

Ok I made one of scrubby and it does not look like yours.  Did you use 2 strands of yarn?  As yours look thicker.  I am using a size "I" needle.  Mine has a lot of gaps!!!



two different shots of the one scrubb
