Hi guys! In this post, you’ll learn how to crochet the Flower Power Face Pad. Face pads are a great way to use up some scrap yarn, learn some new stitches and techniques on a smaller scale, and make something useful! The Flower Power Face Pad works up quickly and uses less than 20 yards of yarn.
You can find the free written pattern for the Flower Power Face Pad, along with the video tutorial, below. I hope you have fun making your face pads!
This face pad is part of the Three’s Company Face Pad set, which features the Polka Dot, Be My Sunshine, and Flower Power Face Pad. 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 patterns for each face pad linked above, or the ad-free printable PDF here. The PDF includes written instructions, step-by-step pictures, and video tutorial links for all 3 face pads.
Feel free to share your progress and finished makes in our TPC Crochet Community Group on Facebook. If you have any questions, we’re happy to help!
- 4.0mm crochet hook
- Yarn Needle
- Approximately 20 yards of any medium 4 worsted weight cotton yarn per pad
- Knit Picks Dishie Yarn, Weight 4 Medium Worsted Yarn (100% Cotton, 190 yd / 174 m, 3.5 oz / 100 g)
- Colours Used: Honeydew, Inlet, Kenai, and Navy
I chose to use Dishie yarn for my face pads, but you can use any cotton yarn as a substitute. Cotton yarn is recommended because it is soft, durable and absorbent.
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.
