Even if you’re a master yarn bender, once in awhile it’s nice to have a quick and simple little project.
With 3 rounds and taking less than 10 minutes in total, these little facial rounds are one of those such projects. This is also a great etude that yields a functional finished item if you are new to working in the round.
I have made over 100 of these things over the last month because they’ve been one of my fastest and best selling items due to their usefulness.
1-2-3 Facial Rounds
Finished size is 2.5 inches in diameter.
The yarn I’m using for these is Peaches & Creme cotton. Being made out of 100% cotton means that these rounds are biodegradable and can be tossed in the compost bin when they are worn out.
You will need:
- Cotton yarn (I used Peaches & Creme)
- H/5.00 mm Crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
Rnd 1: ch 2 and 10 double crochet into ring. Pull ring tight and join with slip stitch to first stitch. (10 stitches total)
Rnd 2: ch 2, 2 double crochet in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first stitch. (20 stitches total)
Rnd 3: ch 2, *double crochet in next stitch, 2 double crochet in subsequent stitch* repeat from *to* around, join with slip stitch to first stitch. (30 stitches total)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Repeat to make as many rounds as you want! I usually do about five to seven per set.
To wash, put them in a mesh delicate laundry bag and machine wash in cold water with detergent and color safe bleach to remove stains. Lay flat to dry.
Paired with coconut oil, these make a great waste free and non-toxic alternative to the chemical laden makeup removal wipes. Coconut oil is a very effective makeup remover and is almost as good as Mulan’s sleeve. The specific coconut oil I use is the Kirkland Signature Virgin Coconut Oil. It is a large tub, so I portion it into a smaller 4 oz mason jar to keep in my bathroom. It’s also a fantastic moisturizer.
Stay tuned, because later this week I have a holiday variation on these to share with you!
