These crochet face scrubbies were designed to have texture – both for visual and touchable interest. The puff stitches add a touch of luxury to an otherwise simple project worked in rounds. Using a soft cotton yarn ensures that the crochet face scrubby feels great to use from the start and bumps up the “treat yourself” feeling.
I chose to use Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton because I’ve found this cotton yarn to be soft from day one and super smooth to work with. Other cotton yarns can be a bit hard on your fingers while you’re working – so I absolutely love being able to start soft from the start and not have the rough, cotton feel on my fingers.
The best part is, these luxury crochet face scrubbies are totally economical to make! You could make as many or as few as you wanted to create a set for yourself or as a gift to a loved one. Each scrubby takes approximately 0.35 ounces (10 grams) to make. So, if you were to purchase a skein of I Love This Cotton (3.5 ounces or 99 grams), you should be able to make approximately 10 crochet face scrubbies from one skein.
Not to mention the money saved from using reusable face scrubbies versus purchasing disposable ones. Save money and the planet, all at once!
This crochet face scrubby pattern is part 2 of the Radiance Bath Set. The full bath set will also include:

If you prefer a premium, ad-free PDF version of this pattern, you can grab one on my Etsy shop by clicking the button below.
The PDF version of this pattern is available to purchase on Etsy. The PDF comes with two versions of the pattern – 1) Full version with a photo tutorial and 2) A printer friendly version.
If you’d like a photo tutorial to walk you through the rounds, I would recommend the inexpensive PDF. It’s 5 pages long, with photos of the more intricate parts, as well as pictures of what each round should look like once complete. The printer friendly version is only 3 pages to save on ink and has only one picture!
Intermediate – This pattern requires working in closed rounds as well as more intermediate stitches such as puff stitches, etc.
That’s not to say that an advanced beginner couldn’t do it!
Medium (4) weight cotton yarn.
You will need approximately 0.35 oz / 10g / 18 yards per scrubby made.
I used I Love This Cotton in Rosy (pink crochet face scrubby) and Buttercup (yellow). You can use any cotton yarn you prefer. I Love This Cotton is 100% cotton and is very soft for cotton yarn, so I use it for most bath items.
4 mm (G-6) hook – Check out my favorite crochet hook!
Stitch Markers, if you prefer them.
Gauge isn’t extremely important.
After completing Round 3, your work should be approximately 1.75 to 2 inches in diameter.
However, keep in mind that this may be skewed depending on if you used the magic circle to start or a chain 3, slip stitch to create a circle.
I am generally a “tight” crocheter, so my gauge is typically very tight compared to others. In terms of this crochet face scrubby, you should not have an issue as the scrubby doesn’t require a specific size. However, I wanted to include this note just for reference.
Approximately 3.5 inches in diameter.

Special Stitch – Puff Stitch
This pattern uses a puff stitch. Puff stitches are worked in a few different ways – so it is important to know which puff stitch to use.
For the purposes of this pattern, we will be working with a closed puff stitch.
To work this puff stitch, you will: [Yarn over and insert your hook into the indicated stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop.] Repeat inside of the brackets 2 more times in the same stitch. You should now have 7 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through 6 of the 7 loops. 2 loops on hook, yarn over, pull through 2.
Special Stitch – Magic Circle
This pattern is written to use a magic circle. You can use the magic circle or you can chain 3 and slip stitch to the first chain made to create a circle to work into. Your choice!
