Flora Washcloth and Face Scrubby Duo Pattern

I wanted to make one last little summer project and couldn’t think of what to make. I was so inspired by the colors of the flowers on the Crape Myrtle Trees outside of my apartment, that I sought out the perfect shade of berry pink to make this great little washcloth and face scrubby duo. The washcloth has awesome texture and is made held double-stranded to give it extra strength and durability. I hope you enjoy this sweet little pattern!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  •     Fingering weight cotton yarn – 2 balls

o   I used DMC Natura Just Cotton in ‘Cerise’… I will say this color is muuuch brighter than in the photo, but it’s still a really pretty, vibrant berry shade

Finished Measurements:

Notes:

To make a sturdier fabric, both the washcloth and scrubby are made double stranded- using 2 strands from 2 balls of yarn together.

Scrubby is worked in a spiral, using a removable stitch marker to mark the first stitch of the round.

WASHCLOTH

Ch 35.

Row 1:Sc in 2nd ch from hook, dc in next st. *Sc, dc*; rep until end of row (ending with a dc in the last st). Ch 1, turn.

Row 2:*Sc, dc*; rep until end of row, making sure that you are always working a sc into a dc from the previous row and vice versa.

Repeat Row 2 until your washcloth measures about 10 inches. For me, it was about 47 rows.

Do not fasten off.

 

Now you will work the edging.

Edging:

Rnd 1: Ch 2 (this counts as first hdc), hdc along entire row, the 3 hdc in corner sp, work hdc along next edge, 3 hdc in next corner sp, work hdc along next edge, 3 hdc in next corner sp, hdc along the final edge and work 3 hdc in that last corner sp. Sl St into top of ch 2. Ch 2, turn.

Rnd 2: Hdc blo in each stitch around.

Fasten off.

Weave in ends.

I gently steam blocked my washcloth to open up the stitches and make it a nice perfect square. (This part is optional though and not really necessary.)

SCRUBBY

*This scrubby is worked in a spiral. 

Using the magic ring method, ch 3. 10 dc in ring, pull tail to close circle.

Rnd 1: Mark the 1st dc with a stitch marker if you’d like. (I prefer to just to keep track of that first st) 2dc in each dc.

Rnd 2: *2 dc in 1st dc , 1 dc in next dc*; rep until end of rnd.

Do not fasten off.

Now you will make the band.

Band

Row 1: Sc in next 4 sts. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: Sc blo across those same 4 sts.

Repeat row 2 until band measures approx. 2.5’’.

Lay the band across the scrubby and find the opposite side that lines up with the stitches you began with.

Sc the band to the opposite end of the scrubby in those 4 sts.

This is the new beginning of your rnd.

Sc in each st around.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

 

And there you have it! I hope you enjoyed my pattern ❤
