How to Crochet an Exfoliating Facial Scrubber – Three Skein Challenge
How to crochet exfoliating facial scrubbers? In this tutorial, I show you how to create a two-sided crochet face scrubber that is perfect for exfoliating your skin. This is a very simple and beginner-friendly pattern. It uses two different stitches for each side so that you can have a ribbed effect for exfoliation or a softer side for general cleansing.
If you aren’t familiar with some of the stitches used in this pattern, check out my Beginners’ Crochet Series here:

Join me in my three skein challenge! Basically, this challenge is to see how many different projects I can complete with only three skeins of size 4, Medium, 7 ounce yarn. This is great if you have a small space and don’t want to have small yarn balls lying around, or if you want to get the absolute MOST out of each strand of yarn. This challenge is also great if you are looking to give homemade gifts as they will all match and compliment each other.
