3 Crochet Face Pad Patterns with Texture

How to Make a Set of 3 Reusable Crochet Face Pads

Hi guys! Did you know that the first video tutorial and pattern that I shared was a reusable crochet face pad? It’s a great project for absolute beginners because it is only has 3 rounds (2 rounds of double crochets, and 1 round of single crochets). Since then, I’ve grown as a crocheter, so I wanted to design some fun facial rounds (or dish scrub pads), with texture and stitches. These were a treat to make in between my larger blanket projects, giving me some time to recharge.

Introducing the Polka Dot, Be My Sunshine, and Flower Power Crochet Face Pads (or Dish Scrub Pads). These beauties were designed to be a fun way to learn some new stitches and techniques, and challenge yourself on a smaller scale. You can find the free written pattern with step-by-step pictures below, or watch the video tutorial. I hope you have fun making this set!

Materials:

  • 4.0mm crochet hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Approximately 20 yards of any medium 4 worsted weight cotton yarn per pad
  • Scissors

Yarn Choice:

A few months ago, I bought a bunch of cotton yarn for a yarn review post. Have I written the blog post yet? Of course not haha. But, I told myself that I need to make a dent in this stash before I can buy anymore yarn, so I’m slowly working my way through it. One of the cotton yarns in my stash is WeCrochet Dishie Yarn: a worsted weight 4 cotton yarn. Dishie Yarn is soft and durable; the colour is beautiful; it has a tiny sheen to it without being shiny; and the stitch definition is incredible. You cannot go wrong with this yarn, especially since it is affordable. It has quickly risen to the top of my favourite yarns list.

For these crochet face pads, I used:

  • WeCrochet Dishie Yarn – Honeydew (Light Green) for the finished product, and Creme Brulee (Light Yellow)  for the tutorial pictures.

Alternative Uses for These Crochet Face Pads:

  • You can use these crochet face pads as scrub pads for washing dishes. Dishie yarn holds up well for dish pads, but if you want something with more grit, you can switch up the yarn. 

Care and Washing Instructions:

  • Before cutting off the yarn tails, PLEASE weave in your ends. The Magic Ring is not secure on its own because it is not made with a knot. To secure this end, pull it tight to close the magic ring, weave it through a few stitches, making one or two knots as you weave. By weaving in your ends securely, you can ensure that your facial pads will hold up over time, and won’t unravel in the wash. 
  • Wash face pads with your towels and sheets in warm water.
  • Use the delicate cycle.
  • Lay flat and let them air dry.
