Crochet exfoliating scrubbie inspiration
Over the years I have developed a sort of tradition of a home spa day on the weekends. Mostly, it doesn’t fully happen – the dream is that I will get a pedicure, mud pack, soak in the bath, candles etc etc. Most I end up just the mud pack when I remember, the one constant thing about my ‘skin regime’ is a scrubby wash mitt. I like the way they make my skin feel, but not how they feel if that makes sense. After making the Loopy for Marian Bay Cushion, I was playing with some yarn as you do and accidentally came up with this two sided crochet exfoliating scrubbie pattern.
Loopy Marian Bay Mitt yarn love
To make my crochet exfoliating scrubbie I used a firm favourite – King Cole Cottonsoft DK. While I know there are a lot of patterns out there that use aran weight yarn for scrubbies, I prefer to use dk weight yarn and 100% cotton as I find they dry easier and feel softer to the skin. This yarn comes in 100g balls, and as this pattern uses 100g of yarn this makes it a perfect one skein crochet project!
