Donut Face Scrubby and Washcloth Pattern

Today I have a super cute and super usable free pattern for you.
The Donut Face Scrubby and Washcloth Pattern.

Crochet bathroom accessories are awesome! They’re a great way to reduce you impact on the environment as they’re reusable, they’re quick and fun to make and they make great gifts.

These donut face scrubbies and washcloths are even more awesome because, well, because they’re donuts 🍩.

Make a matching set of colourful sprinkle topped donut face scrubbies for yourself or a donut washcloth for your little one in their favourite flavour and see how much more fun washing your face can be.
See below for the face scrubby pattern, followed by the additional rounds to turn it into a washcloth, or purchase an inexpensive PDF (which includes the full photo tutorial) through my Etsy shop here.

Donut Face Scrubby and Washcloth Pattern.

Hook: 6mm (J)

Yarn: I used 2 strands of Bendigo Woollen Mills 8 ply cotton in Pink Rose, Cola Crush, Daffodil, Blush and Arctic.
You can use any DK weight soft cotton for these scrubbies in whatever colour you like.
If using a different weight yarn you will need to adjust your hook size to match and your end product will vary in size.

Notions: large yarn needle to sew on sprinkles and weave in ends.

Sprinkles!

I used 2 strands of my sprinkle colours so that I have nice big obvious sprinkles.

I cut a nice long piece (~100 cms or 39 inches), then thread both ends through my yarn needle leaving a long loop. I then use this loop to secure the first stitch without a knot by weaving my needle through a stitch on the back of the donut, and then through the loop and pulling it tight.  *see photos below

Next push your needle through to the front of your donut, pick where you want the sprinkle to end and thread it back through to the back again.

To help keep the back a bit neater, I weave the yarn through the back of the stitches to get to the place I want my next sprinkle to begin.  *see photos below

To finish the sprinkles I tie a knot through the back of one of the stitches, weave the end through a bit and cut the yarn.

You can do as many different coloured sprinkles as you like. I have done 2 or 3 colours for mine. I find that sewing on the sprinkles takes longer than crocheting the donut but they’re totally worth it as they really create the donut look!

You can purchase an inexpensive, downloadable, printable PDF version of this pattern in my Etsy shop here if you would like to use this pattern offline.
