How Do You Crochet a Makeup Remover Pad?
If you are looking for an easy to crochet makeup remover pattern then this is the one for you! They are the perfect size to remove eye make up easily!
No more messes on your face after you use these! The best part is that you don’t have to keep buying makeup removers from the store because these can be washed and reused!
Keep on reading down to learn how to make these reusable crochet face scrub pads, about the yarn you’ll want to use and the simple stitches!
The Stitches You’ll Need For A Makeup Remover Pad
To make these removers you will need to know how to do a herringbone half double crochet and a single crochet. I will explain each one in detail below and provide a video link to each stitch also.
I chose the hhdc stitch because I wanted a stitch that would have a bit of texture so it would help clean a face more.
To finish off these scrubbies I used a slip stitch along the outside round to give it a nice clean edge. I am really happy with how it turned out. Take a look in the picture below.
Like I mentioned briefly before we will be working in the round which is quite simple once you get the hang of it! Promise! But before we get started let’s talk about the yarn you’ll want to use for these makeup removers.
The yarn to use for these removers should be a 100% cotton yarn. It will make it a million (or more) times easier to reuse since it can easily be thrown in the washer and dryer after you clean your face.
I used the colorway Rose Taupe but if you’d prefer you can use the color Vintage because it would make it much easier to clean the makeup off after it is used. Just use a little bleach (or natural alternative) when you are cleaning to remove the makeup.
My favorite part and probably the best part of this pattern is that you can make quite a bit of these removers with just one skein of yarn. You could even use left over Pima from another project since these take such a small amount of yarn!
If you can’t find this yarn then no worries! A great substitute for these remover pads would be Lily Sugar’n Cream yarn or any 100% cotton four weight yarn. There are many options to choose from and honestly all would work!
