I found this adorable crochet pattern and just had to give it a try, especially when the instructions said you could whip one of these up in about ten minutes.I confess it took me a little longer than ten minutes, but I am not a crochet expert. I used left over bits of cotton yarn and really a full ball would make a ton of these! I think they’ll make good facial cleansing pads, yay for green products.
I also have to share this little story about the yarn I used for these. You know how once you tell your family and friends that you’ve started knitting or crocheting you inevitably end up with a garbage bag of red heart yarn? At the bottom of my bag was this very interesting vintage 100% cotton terry cloth yarn that I have be attempting to use for years. Terry cloth yarn seems like a good idea, but the texture of the yarn makes it impossible to frog anything (the picture does not do it justice), it just won’t come undone, but it’s cool. I was able to use it by doubling it up with regular cotton and the result is awesome and super soft and spongy. I will finally be using up all of this yarn for this project.
