Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Scrubbie

I haven't posted anything in a long time but I'm finally back with a simple flower scrubbie. It's a mere three rounds, requires little counting, and takes about ten minutes to make. You can make a bunch in a single sitting, making them perfect for Croflixing (Crochet+Netflix). They're also versatile-- I've been using mine as face scrubbies but they would be just as good in the kitchen. 

I included some round-by-round photos to help with construction. It's such an easy, straightforward pattern it probably doesn't need a photo tutorial but now it's got one anyway. I've been working on better photos and hope to eventually take good photos myself.  I don't know if I'm improved much but I certainly have been having fun. 

But enough about photos. Let get right into the pattern. 

Add this to Ravelry HERE.
Pin this HERE.

Ch: Chain
Sl st: Slip stitch
Dc: Double crochet
Shell: 5 dc in the same st
Sk: Skip 

  • J/6mm crochet hook
  • 10 yards worsted weight cotton yarn (I used Peaches & Cream in Happy Go Lucky)
  • Yarn needle 
Finished size: 4" across

Gauge: First 2 rounds measure 2.75" across
(Gauge isn't critical. I do tend to crochet a little bit tight so if you're a looser crocheter, try going down a hook size. 

Round 1: Ch 3, dc 12 in 3rd ch from hook, sl st to 1st dc to close round. (12)

Round 2: Ch 2, 2dc in each st around, sl st to 1st dc to close round. (24)

Round 3: *Ch 1, sk st, shell in next st, ch 1, sk st, sl st in next st* repeat around, ending with a sl st in the last stitch. (6 shells)

Fasten off. Weave in ends. 

Be warned: they do have a tendency to multiply. 

If you need any help with the pattern (or notice an error) leave me a comment below or contact me through my Facebook Page HERE  and I'll be happy to help you. 

As always, thanks for reading. Now go out and make something!

  1. I really don't know what I'm doing wrong but... I've tried redoing this pattern three times, count my round to 24 stitches, but I keep ending up with 8 shells, not 6... idk what I'm doing wrong but I'm repeating the shell around as directed.. idk...

    1. Hi! After reading your comment and looking over the pattern, I realized that it was an error on my part. One of the "sk st" from round 3 was missing. (What can I say? I'm only human!). Thanks for bringing it to my attention. :) I'm sorry for the inconvenience but wish you smooth sailing from here on out.

  2. Hi Maria, i must not be read your pattern correctly as mine came out perfect first time, or maybe cos im old, thank you for that fabulous flower i have used it on a jumper i croched for my friend, please don`t tell her its a scubbie, thank you again xx

This was a difficult list to compile. I have so many crochet bloggers who have inspired me and am always adding new ones to the list. If I were to name all of them, it would take me days. With that in mind, I decided to tell you about eight of them, in no particular order. Now we can ooh and awe and pin all their patterns together.

2. Sarah Zimmerman of Repeat Crafter Me. Sarah has a unique way of writing patterns that just makes them so much easier to understand. She has lots of patterns, particularly colorwork ones, all of which are lovely. Always well written, always beautiful, and often with video/photo tutorials.

Abigail Flip-flop Doll ~ Free Crochet Pattern

I wanted to make something for my younger sister's birthday but didn't stop to think about the particulars until less than two days before. I needed something quick that required minimal stuffing. Enter Abigail.

She's no ordinary doll. Flip her dress over her head and you have a tulip-like flower. Flip the flower part back down over the stem and she's a pretty princess again. Neat, right?

Despite her cool turns-into-a-flower trick, the construction isn't all that difficult.  Both her head and dress are made in one piece, with some back loops only definition at the waist. The arms, flower stem, and leaf are made separately and stitched on afterward. Her hair is made by making a pink cap with two small pompoms stitched to it and then the whole thing is sewn to the head. If you'd rather buy pompoms than make them, that's fine too.(I owe a special thank-you to my brother Jack for once again working his pompom wizardry. I suffer from an inability to make pompoms s…
