Hi, so here is a very quick and super chic crochet cotton pad pattern for you. If you are following me on instagram and facebook you will know that as a family we are becoming far more consious of our waste and plastic use. We already use crochet washcloths and they make great gifts. It wasnt until I went for a facial treatment recently that it occured to me that cotton pads must create so much waste, they are a one use convinence that can be avoided. I designed these pads with a luxury spa treatment in mind. Using super soft Egypitian cotton DK weight yarn (you can use any good quality 100% cotton yarn) and a 4mm hook. Stock up your bathroom, use then wash in your washing machine and reuse. Simple.
You will need:
4mm crochet hook
100% cotton DK yarn from your stash.
Yarn recomendations - Paintbox Cotton or Drops Paris.
Stitches required - These are UK sts, feel free to convert into US sts if rquired.
- ML = magic loop
- ch = chain
- htr = half treble crochet (US half double crochet)
- puff stitch (PS) - YO, insert hook in st, YO, Pull up loop YO, insert hook in same st, YO, Pull up loop, YO, insert hook in same st, YO, Pull up loop (7 loops on hook), YO, pull through all 7 on hook. ch1 to secure.
- dc = double crochet (US single crochet)
- ss = slip stitch.
ML, ch1, 12htr into ML, ss to join. (12)
Ch1, work one PS (see abreviations - puff stitch) in each st round, ss to join. (12)

ss in each stitch round. (24)
ch 10, flip pad over, skip 12 stitches, ss into back of next st, cast off and sew in the ends.#
