New Pattern:Facial Scrubbing Disc (for Makeover Monday)
For Makeover Monday I made a gift basket for a friend. I whipped up a couple of cool natural beauty aids in the kitchen: Oatmeal bath, lavender linen spray, lavender bath powder, and an herbal massage oil. I then designed this quick little pattern for a facial scrubbing pad based on a washcloth pattern that I'm fond of. I simple combined single crochet stitch with the triple to create a textured surface... Here is what I did.
Use an F or G hook and worsted weight cotton yarn.
Round 1-Make a magic ring and then crotchet 6 into the ring.
Round 2-SC and TR into each stitch around for a total of 12 stitches (6 single and 6 triple).
Round 3-( SC into next stitch, SC twice into next) repeat all the way around for 18 SC.
Round 4- (SC into next, TR into next, SC and TR into the next) repeat all the way around for a total of 24 (12SC and 12 TR)
Round 5- (SC into next 3 stitches, SC two stitches into the next) repeat all the way around for a total of 30 SC.
Slip stitch into next two SC and then fasten off.
Weave in ends and you have yourself a cute facial scrubbie.
