Crochet Pattern: Textured Facial Pad

By Candace – 5 Comments
The cotton pads you find in the store are great for using with facial cleansers. But if you want to be a little more friendly to the environment or you just don’t want to have to keep buying more, crocheting them may be the way to go. Make a stack in as may colors as you like and toss them in with the laundry when you’re done with them. crochet_facial_pad

    These are great! I make some with acrylic yarn too for those days when a little exfoliation is desired.

    When it says make an adjustable ring is that suppsosed to be like a magic ring? I’m fairly new crocheted and that is a bit confusing.

      Hi Sharla,

      They’re the same thing, so no worries. And of course, if you have any other starting method you prefer, you could use that instead. Have fun making them!

    Thank you for this pattern. Wanted a facial scrubber made with recycled materials or scraps. This is great. I am going to try.
