Coral Blossoms Face Scrubbies
Free Crochet Pattern
One of my most favorite crocheted items to use daily are face scrubbies or face pads made using 100% cotton. I have several that I first made a few years ago, this set here, and I still use them to this day. But, I wanted to make some more prettier ones with some texture to them. That’s how the Coral Blossoms Face Scrubbies came about. Honestly, the color of the yarn, which is Coral, gave me the inspiration for the design, name, and texture. They do look like corals in the sea or even sand dollars, just a little bit.
What do you think about face scrubbies? Have you used and do you like them? I like that they can be tossed in the wash easily with your regular washing; no special treatment needed. I like that these face scrubbies work up super quickly and can be made while watching your favorite tv show (Heartland, When Calls the Heart, Brooklyn 99, Manifest, Amsterdam… just to name a few of my favorites), and these can also be great craft show items or even sold in local artisan type shops.

- The 4dc Bobble Stitch is written as Bobble Stitch.
- Side Note on the Bobble Stitch: If you are comfortable using a 5dc Bobble Stitch and want to use that, you can. All that will happen is your Bobble Stitch will be fuller in size but it won’t change the stitch count of the pattern.
