My daughters are getting to the age now where they are starting to be interested in beauty products, lotions, and soaps and all sorts of fun girly things. So, I thought they would like some homemade crochet flower cleansing pads to add something pretty to their new beauty routines. The girls loved them, and so do I! I even made a few for myself 🙂

They are lots of fun and quick and easy to do!

    Wow, so cute!! ♥ Some time ago I made a little net full of crocheted cleansing pads for a penfriend, but they were simple plain ones (only in many different colors). I really must keep your pattern in mind for the next time because these flowers are so much prettier! Thanks for sharing :-))
    Have a nice day!! Nata xxx

      Hope you enjoy them 🙂

  12. Brenda May 1, 2013 at 9:01 pm #

    These are awesome but I need a video tutorial to fully understand the pattern could you help me with this? Thanks

    • Kara May 1, 2013 at 9:08 pm #

      Unfortunately I don’t have a video tutorial at this time, but I can try to help. Which part are you having trouble with?

  13. Francheska May 1, 2013 at 11:52 pm #

    Are they suppose to be small? Because mine turned out pretty small after I finish round 4. Also I’m not quite getting what to do after that. Yours look great though, they’re supper cute.

    • Kara May 2, 2013 at 11:14 am #

      Hi Francheska 🙂 After Round 4 you should have a flat circle about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Then, once you work the rest of the pattern into the front loops of the rounds, the flower should be about 3 1/2 inches. Hope that helps 🙂

  14. Alicia May 3, 2013 at 5:12 am #

    Thank you so much for your party!
    I was wondering if I could share your post on my blog, It’s so great!
    Of course with a direct link to your blog.
    Thank you.

    • Kara May 3, 2013 at 7:36 am #

      Glad you like it!! That would be great :). You are welcome to reprint one of the pictures but please link over to my post for the pattern. Thanks!!

  15. Gardenchef's Needle and Pen May 3, 2013 at 6:42 pm #

    Thank you for sharing the pattern!

  16. Kate May 4, 2013 at 1:30 am #

    So I am totally confused… It all starts with the do not join after the first 6 stitches and ends with that whole last part after round 4… I know this is lame, but do you think you could add some more pics since you can’t do a video? Don’t I have to join somehow to start round 2? Would you advise leaving an extra lond tail from the magic circle to do the last step? I am going to try it again tomorrow, maybe my brain just needs a rest…

    • Kara May 4, 2013 at 2:02 pm #

      Hi Kate :). This circular pattern is worked in a spiral so you do not join at the ends of the rounds. You just work the next rows’ stitches right in the ones from the previous round. Rounds 1-4 of the pattern are the base of the pad. The flower effect is put on after Round 4.

      • Kate May 6, 2013 at 2:57 pm #

        Thank you so much for your reply, I am sure you are very busy and for you to take the time to try to help me out really made my day. They turned out great, and were much easier to do than my brain was originally making them… Have a great day!

        • Kara May 6, 2013 at 10:10 pm #

          It was no problem at all! I am glad that I was able to help and that you figured it out and are happy with them 🙂

  17. Pearlin J May 4, 2013 at 2:55 am #

    These are really cute n useful

    • Kara May 4, 2013 at 1:58 pm #

      Thanks, Ana 🙂

  21. Nancy Warren May 14, 2013 at 7:46 am #

    I love the star pattern you have in the center of the top banner at your website. Do you have the instructions for that star pattern? I really want to try it. Thank you in advance for your help.

    • Kara May 14, 2013 at 1:32 pm #

      Hi Nancy 🙂 Those are African flower motifs. I don’t have a pattern for the posted here, but there are a bunch of patterns floating around online that you should be able to find pretty easily. For my afghan, I didn’t work the last round of the pattern that makes them into a true hexagon, instead I joined them as is to try to make them look more like flowers. Hope this helps 🙂

  22. Marcella Lee May 29, 2013 at 10:05 am #

    Thank you for writing such a clear pattern, I have made four just this morning for my sons teachers end of the year gifts!

    • Kara May 29, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

      I am so glad you liked it 🙂

    Not much of a “crocheter” so anyone able to convert to knitting?

    • Kara July 16, 2013 at 5:16 pm #

      Sorry, Gretchen … wish I could help 🙁

  25. Debby Decker July 13, 2013 at 1:34 pm #

    I love this pattern. I found it pinned on Lion Brand’s Pinterest page.

    I will be linking to this post from my blog on Tuesday, July 16, 2013.

    Thank, Debby

    • Kara July 16, 2013 at 5:15 pm #

      So glad you like it! Thanks for sharing it on your blog 🙂

  26. jamie July 17, 2013 at 7:49 pm #

    I really like this pattern and i knows its super easy to make , but when i make it doesnt swirl like a rose, i dont understand this step about joining,where am i to go if i dont join?

    Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 6 sc in ring, do not join here and throughout — 6 sts.

    • Kara July 17, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

      Hi Jamie 🙂 Instead of joining at the end of each round, you just continue crocheting in a spiral. In other words, just start the next round as you usually would but without joining the previous one. This will give you the swirl effect. Make sense?

  27. SHerry placek July 24, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    Can you pleas e tell me if their is a way to not ise the magic circle I find it hard to control with my 60 year old hands. Thank you mrs. Sherry placek

    • Kara July 24, 2013 at 11:24 pm #

      Hi Sherry 🙂 For this particular pattern, you can ch 2 and then work the first round of stitches into the 2nd chain from hook. Hope that helps!

  28. Kaitlyn July 31, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

    Hi!! Thanks for this awesome tut. But I was just wondering what the “first unworked loop from round one” meant… Could you describe which loop that would be? Or send me a picture? Please reply ASAP. Thanks soo much! I look forward to making these 🙂

    • Kara July 31, 2013 at 10:49 pm #

      Hi Kaitlyn 🙂 When you work the circle for the first part, you are only working the stitches in the back loop. This leaves the front loop free for the second part in which you would join your yarn into the first free loop at the center and then work around. Hope that helps!

      • Kaitlyn August 5, 2013 at 10:27 pm #

        Oh, thanks so much!! Now I’ll make a ton of these for me and daughters!! Thanks for the quick reply~~ 🙂

  29. Charlotte August 19, 2013 at 10:04 pm #

    I love this pattern! Thanks so much for sharing it. As a little “thank you”, I posted about the pattern on my own blog here:

  30. diane August 25, 2013 at 3:55 pm #


    mine didn’t turn out right. it just looks flat. am i missing something?


    • Kara August 25, 2013 at 4:55 pm #

      Did you do the second part where you join the yarn to the unworked loops? That is what adds the ruffle flower design. Hope that helps 🙂

      • diane August 26, 2013 at 1:24 am #


        do i complete rows 1-4 and then fasten off?


        • Kara August 26, 2013 at 10:13 am #

          Yes, fasten off after Round 4 and continue as follows …
          Fasten off. Join yarn in first unworked loop from Round 1, work 1 sc in same loop as join, *3 hdc in next, 1 sc in next, rep from * around, Sl st in next and fasten off. Weave in ends.

          • diane August 29, 2013 at 2:58 pm #


            how do i add the extra loops if i don’t use the magic circle?


          • Kara September 1, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

            Hi Diane 🙂 The “unworked loops” are not effected by the magic ring at all. If you don’t want to use the magic ring, you can chain 2 and then work the first round in the second chain from the hook. The rest of the pattern will be exactly the same.

  31. Douglas August 31, 2013 at 5:57 am #

    Great little idea. Quick and easy. And it’s great for both a facial puff and an embellishment. I’m even thinking of trying this in wire as a brooch. Here’s a simple little add on you may want to consider for the facial puff. A little handle to slip over the fingers.

    Leaving a tail for sewing, CH 9; SC in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across; CH 1; turn; SC in each sc across; finish leaving a tail for sewing.

    With a tapestry needle, sew the ends of the strip to the unused loops of the final round. Weave in ends and trim.

    I only just made a couple but I plan on putting up pics for my Facebook followers a bit later (

    Thanks for a neat stash buster project.

    • Kara September 1, 2013 at 12:01 pm #

      Great suggestion!

  32. fariba January 9, 2014 at 1:53 am #

    So very lovely pattern ,Thank u so much

    • Kara January 14, 2014 at 10:45 pm #

      Thank you 🙂

  33. Michelle Bogart April 16, 2014 at 11:24 pm #

    I made some of these for my Mom to add to Easter bags. I made a plain circle and sewed a back to these so you just put two fingers in the “pocket”. I think it will make them a bit easier to use. Thanks for such a cute pattern!

    • Kara April 19, 2014 at 4:39 pm #

      Great idea, Michelle!

  34. Debra May 11, 2014 at 8:32 pm #

    Love these! Added a hair twistie for my granddaughter to use as a ponytail holder. Since they are a bit small, it would/will be easy to make it bigger by just continuing the base until you get the size you want.

  35. Tianna August 12, 2014 at 11:46 pm #

    I have tried this pattern i dont know how many times but no matter what it never looks anything but like a flat spiral even when i used just the back loop like the pattern specified. i started with a magic loop and did everything but it stayed flat. Is it my yarn? I’m using sugar and cream 100 percent cotton yarn and it just wont work! The only time it started to raise is when i did back post single crochet

    • Kara August 13, 2014 at 9:25 am #

      Hi Tianna 🙂 Are you continuing on with this part? “Fasten off. Join yarn in first unworked loop from Round 1, work 1 sc in same loop as join, *3 hdc in next, 1 sc in next, rep from * around, Sl st in next”

  36. Grace December 22, 2014 at 6:31 pm #

    Hello! Are these supposed to be small or big? When I made them, they turned out to be pretty small. How big are the ones you made? Thank you! I love the pattern.

    • Kara December 30, 2014 at 12:15 am #

      Mine are about 3 inches in diameter.

      • Debra December 30, 2014 at 10:12 am #

        Kara – 3 inches is about right. That’s why I turned them into “flower” hair twisties by adding some beads and hair elastics.


  37. lori October 4, 2015 at 7:57 pm #

    Hello, I can only get up to round four for your crochet flower cleansing pad. Is there a link or something that I am missing on your page? I click on print or pdf and nothing happens. I am finally getting around to trying to make this. I am new to crocheting but it looks as if it is something I could definitely do. Thanks

    • Kara October 9, 2015 at 9:34 am #

      Are you continuing on with this part? … “Fasten off. Join yarn in first unworked loop from Round 1, work 1 sc in same loop as join, *3 hdc in next, 1 sc in next, rep from * around, Sl st in next and fasten off. Weave in ends.”

  38. Shelley December 3, 2015 at 3:37 pm #

    Love this pattern! I think I’ll make several for Christmas presents.I wanted to purchase the supplies from somewhere to help support your blog. But I was unable to find the affiliate links.

  39. Diane January 12, 2016 at 8:18 pm #

    Dear Kara, l just had to tell you how cute and practical these face scrubbies are. I must admit my dislexic brain had a hard time getting the rejoin.. But when l finally got it…… I’ve made a dozen of them. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern😉

    • Kara January 14, 2016 at 6:12 pm #

      So happy to hear that, Diane!!

  40. Tina June 10, 2016 at 11:58 pm #

    How fun! I don’t do much crocheting anymore because it hurts my hands and wrists after a bit, but these are calling me to do some again. Would be quick and easy and would make great gifts! Love, love, love these! Thanks for sharing. <3

  41. Jean Robinson August 7, 2016 at 2:37 pm #

    I have been crocheting for a long time. I know this is an easy pattern. When I make mine they come out flat. I am going through the back loop. Yours look so nice and fluffy. What am I doing wrong. I have tried different sized hooks. Thanks so much.

    • Kara August 8, 2016 at 2:43 pm #

      Hi Jean 🙂 Are you working the last part of the pattern? “Fasten off. Join yarn in first unworked loop from Round 1, work 1 sc in same loop as join, *3 hdc in next, 1 sc in next, rep from * around, Sl st in next and fasten off. Weave in ends.”

      • Jean Robinson August 8, 2016 at 4:28 pm #

        Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to me. I am adding the last row. My middle part does not stand up like yours looks like in the picture. I just had some peaches and cream with me on vacation. Could it be the yarn? Thanks.

  3. Another Use For Those Flowers · Crochet | - May 10, 2013

    […] I like the idea of making them in a variety of colors.  If you have more than one lady in the house, each can have her own color.  It wouldn’t hurt a guy to use them either!  Or a baby’s bottom.  I’d like to see them made with double strands of size 10 cotton, too.  In my climate, the size 10 cotton will dry out more thoroughly than the worsted weight cotton yarn.  Also, don’t hesitate to make them with acrylic yarn.  Acrylic yarn makes a really good scrubber – if you don’t apply too much pressure, they’ll work fine on skin.  Get the free pattern here.
