Learn how to crochet a facial scrub and cotton pads with this free crochet pattern. It’s the perfect addition to any gift basket for Mother’s Day and even Birthdays and Holidays.


With Mother’s Day coming up, this environmentally-friendly DIY facial scrub and cotton pads make a perfect gift. And if you don’t make as a gift, then you should make it for yourself for sure. Much better than those one-time use pads and scrubs.

The scrub and the pads are made out of cotton so they can be used with water and of course be washed in the washing machine to reuse.

This collection includes 1 facial scrub crochet pattern and 3 similar, but different cotton pad crochet patterns. In fact, all 4 patterns have different textures on each side, so both of the sides can have a different purpose.

The facial scrub has a fluffy side and a mild bumpy side which each serve a different purpose. The pads also have a more scruffy side and a more smoother side. I like the versatility and multi-functional uses of the scrubs and pads.

So, let me now give you the supplies you need in order to crochet this pattern.
