Easy Face Scrubbie

This easy face scrubbie is another free crochet pattern for the SPA lover. It really is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Three rounds and your are done! Perfect crochet pattern for a beginner.

Face scrubbies are not only great for pampering yourself with some spa-like treatments at home; they can also help keep your skin clear and healthy. Plus, the round shape makes them incredibly fast and easy to make.

This easy Face Scrubber is the perfect project for crocheters of all levels. Not only can this cute and useful pattern be used as a facial cleanser, but it’s economical, environmentally conscientious, and incredibly fast to work up. The best part is that you don’t need any special tools or expensive yarn. Just some scrap cotton will do.

In this blog post I’ll share an easy-to-follow round reusable mini face cloth crochet pattern so that you can whip up as many of these cute little rounds as you care to make.

A crochet pattern that is beautiful and functional. These mini washcloths would be great for yourself or as a teacher or hostess gift. The texture is amazing and looks stunning in any kitchen or bathroom. These could be great shower gifts for a mom to be as well.

Face Scrubbie With or Without a Handle

My daughter has to test out the face scrubbie with the handle yet, but we tried to add that to see if it would help with holding the little scrubbie in the shower. She said that she loves using her scrubbie in the shower. something

First, I wanted to show you how this face scrubbie fits into a SPA Crochet Set that I have been working on. There is still more SPA patterns that are part of the set in the works yet. Enjoy!

SPA Crochet Set

This winter the weather was brutal. I spent quite a bit of time crocheting and creating. These face scrubbies are part of a larger SPA Crochet Set. While the SPA set looks beautiful in many colors, I ended up making a red and white set that is perfect for Christmas, Valentines, and Sweetest Day.

Crochet Small Bag

This small bag was actually designed initially to hold a shower melt. Works wonderfully to have this cute little bag handing in the shower with a shower melt for a headache. Really works too. If you would like this crochet pattern for the Crochet Small Bag, you can find that here. The photo of the bag is below.

About the Beginner Crochet Pattern

This face scrubbie takes just three rounds of crochet. It is a super quick crochet pattern to work. Round 1 consists of double crochet. The second round is single crochet, and the third round is double crochet again. Weave in the yarn ends and you are done.

If you prefer to have a handle on this face scrubbie, that is completed using chain stitches.

What Type of Yarn Works Best for Face Scrubbies?

I have used this cotton yarn for the face scrubbies I made today as it has always worked well for the washcloths. The yarn is sturdy and holds up well to multiple washes and use. I have used yarn that is a combination of cotton and polyester that has worked out well. It seems as long as there is quite a bit of cotton in the yarn, it will be okay.

Crochet Pattern: Easy Face Scrubbie

Don’t forget, there is a video tutorial too.


Approximately 3 inches around.


Less than a skein of 4-ply cotton yarn. I do recommend a cotton yarn for easy use and quick drying. Approximately 60 yards of yarn.

Here are some pretty cotton yarn options to use for this pattern.

Size H Crochet Hook

Yarn Needle


If you are new to crochet, you can get a nice beginner crochet set here.


CH = Chain

DC = Double Crochet

SC = Single Crochet

SL ST = Slip Stitch

ST = Stitch



Start with a magic circle. Here is a tutorial on how to make the magic circle.

CH 1. This chain 1 does not count as anything.

Round 1

Complete 12 DC in the magic circle. Join with a SL ST into the top loops of the first DC.

Round 2

CH 1 (this does not count as anything). 1 SC in same ST. 2 SC in each DC. Complete SC in the first ST. Join with a SL ST.

Round 3

CH 1 (this does not count as anything). 1 DC in same ST. [2 DC in next ST, 1 DC in next ST]. Repeat between [ ] all the way around. Complete DC in the first ST. Join with SL ST.


Gently pull the center of the face scrubbie closed a bit to close up the center hole a bit smaller. Using a yarn needle, weave in the yarn ends. Cut off the excess yarn. You are already complete with your face scrubbie.

If you Plan on Adding a Handle. After you have completed the last row and completed the SL ST, rather than weaving in the yarn, continue on for the handle.

Directions to the Handle

Crochet 9-12 chains depending on how tight you want the handle for the face scrubbie on your hand.

Once the chains are complete, SL ST into the top two loops of a stitch across from where you started the handle.

This way the handle is in the middle of the scrubbie.


Pull the yarn through the last loop. Weave in the ends and cut off the excess yarn.
