5 Little Monsters: Ring-Around Crocheted Scrubbies

Ring-Around Crocheted Scrubbies


Today I am excited to be participating in the Scrubbie Crochet Along with CAL Central. Over a period of 10 weeks (I am week number 5) different crochet designers will be sharing different scrubbie patterns, so if you follow along all of them you will have 10 new scrubbie patterns. 


My scrubbie is a small round scrubbie that uses a few different stitches to create a variety of textures. I intended it as more of a face scrubbie than anything else, I think the small size and shape make it perfect for cleaning your face or removing makeup.


The Ring-Around Scrubbie is made of a ring of puff stitches around a spoke like center made with post stitches, and finished off with a round of single crochet. The puff stitches and the post stitches give them just enough texture to make them nice for scrubbing but still soft and gentle against your skin. 


The small size makes these scrubbies a quick and easy project to make, and a great way to use up leftover cotton yarn.
