Puff Stitch Crochet Face Pads

These quick and easy face scrubbies or crochet face pads are made with the puff stitch for squishy absorbent cleansing. Use as eco friendly, sustainable skin care for yourself or as last minute gifts!

They’re super durable and long lasting, I couldn’t be without them now for my skincare routine or taking off makeup. I was throwing away so many disposable face wipes and pads that just really isn’t good for old mother nature, and now I have so many of these that I no longer buy any.

What yarn is best for crochet face scrubbies?

Cotton yarn is ideal, DK or Aran is fine. Aran may be a little more padded and absorbent, which is perfect for using with a face wash in the bath or shower. DK is lighter and thinner, so better for using a toner or cleanser in your daily skincare routine.

Crochet face pads complete! I regularly put mine in the washing machine and they’ve held up very well, most have been in circulation for over a year without any disintegration. But, hand washing is probably better and recommended if you have time for that.

Happy making, i’d love to see your colours on IG @burgundyandblush
