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.

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

Materials:
  • 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.

  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.

Lucy's Kimono ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Believe it or not, I started this in June. I thought it would be a good early-summer-so-sometimes-it's-chilly-at-night piece. But summer came and went and it still never got finished. Then I thought it would be a good transitioning-into-fall piece. But here it is! If you're wondering why that's because this Kimono is over 12,300 stitches and made with almost 1500 yards of yarn. You read that right.  Fifteen-hundred yards.  So I feel slightly vindicated in this delay. 



I considered waiting for a more seasonable time to release this pattern but decided against it. I've worn it quite a few times and always get tons of sweet compliments. I hope you enjoy it! 




Before we get into the pattern, let's talk about the Diamond Stitch. 




Although the repeat is 8 rows, those rows repeat themselves so it's essentially made up of 5 rows. The repeat is a, b, c, d, e, d, c, b, a. In the back panel, this is rows, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.  Both of the front panels begin with d, so t…

(Some of) My Favorite Crochet Bloggers

Pin HERE or with the image above. 

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.
