This one is shown here in a single color, but you can easily make these crochet cotton face scrubbies in two colors as well. It’s a great pattern to use up those smallest amounts of yarn scraps that you can get.
This quick and easy scrubbie works up in just two short rounds. The finished size measures 3.25 inches across, and makes for a quick last-minute gift idea.
The scrubby is crocheted in with half doubles in the first round. The second round is then worked with the crossed double crochet, with the picot made between the cross-over. This makes for a nice texture for all your scrubbing needs.
