Facial Scrubbies with Basket Free pattern
In an effort to help the environment, we made our own facial scrubbies - these are great! You use them to wash your face, throw in the wash, and reuse. One problem, they lay around the sink, fall out of the stack and make a mess. So we designed a basket to hold the little buggers. Here's how we did it:
R1: ch3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join and ch 1
R2: 2sc in each stitch around (24)
R3: dc first stitch, 2dc next, repeat around (36)
R4: sc first two stitches, 2sc next, repeat around
R5: sc first three stitches, 2sc next, repeat around
R6: (this row back loops only) dc each stitch around
R7 & 8: sc each stitch around
R9: dc each stitch around
R10 & 11: sc each stitch around, finish off and sew in the ends.
For the lid pull:
Cut 2 pieces of yarn about 6-8 in. long, fold in half and make a knot about an inch or so down from the uncut loop end. Thread the loose ends in the center hole of lid, knotting underneath. This leaves the loops sticking up to use to open the lid!
Quick, easy, customizable and makes a great gift for everyone. Perfect little stocking stuff or a co-worker gift.
Great scrap buster project because it uses small amounts of cotton yarn (I used Sugar and Cream)
Scrubbies: Make 7
Ch3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join and ch1.
2dc in each ch across (24)
Finish off and sew in the ends.
If you prefer a larger scrubbie, add a 3rd round by joining, ch1 and dc same stitch, *2dc next, dc next ch*, – repeat around
R1: Ch3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join and ch1.
R2: 2dc in each ch across (24)
R3: sc first, 2sc next, repeat
R4: dc first two, 2dc next, repeat
R5: (back loops only) sc each stitch around.
Finish off and sew in your ends.
(This scrubbie I made a 3rd row of shells (ss 1st stitch, 3dc in the next stitch, ss next and repeat around.)
